A Brief History

The company was formed when men by the name of Major William Holland and Alfred Slapps Barret bought a grocery store together in the historic town of Bishop’s Stortford. When the pair bought the store in 1870, they had enough success to buy another one. One of their stores continued down the grocer’s path while the other started selling clothes. After opening a third store in the 1920s, they decided to sell the business to Alfred Button & Sons.

Many different companies have since held ownership of the company, including well-known Lloyds Pharmacy. The company is no longer owned by Lloyds Pharmacy and has continued to change hands multiple times since. However, the brand is still recognised as a symbol of health supplements and alternative medicine – to the extent that a British MP has become known as an honorary MP of Holland and Barrett because of his pro-homeopathy status.
