Shenzhen, China, August 16th, 2018 - Swanson, one of America's largest online retailers of vitamins and health products, will be working with Chinese e-tailing group Azoya to enter the Asia-Pacific region via cross-border e-commerce. Azoya will assist Swanson with setting up an e-commerce presence in China, Japan, and South Korea, which will include the daily operation and maintenance of Swanson's standalone e-commerce platforms and marketplace stores.
As part of its international expansion, the Asia-Pacific region will play a key role in driving growth for Swanson going forward. China is experiencing an unprecedented rise in demand for high-quality health supplements and products from developed countries such as the US, as numerous health-related product scandals have dampened consumer demand for Chinese-made products.

"We are excited to enter into a long-term partnership with such a renowned player in the US health supplements industry. Azoya sees a tremendous amount of potential in the Swanson brand. We believe that we can help Swanson grow its business in the local China market, as well as in Japan and South Korea, where consumers have a particular affinity for US-made goods," noted Azoya co-founder Don Zhao.
Competition in the China market will be fierce, as numerous players in the industry are entering the market to take advantage of new opportunities.
