Slim 10/10 as the lead product in terms of demand within the weight management
category, throughout French pharmacies.

"We have had such a positive response to Slim 10/10, from Health
Professionals, Journalists and the trade sector. Our extensive above and below
the line marketing support for the launch of Slim 10/10, including National TV
campaigns throughout the whole of the launch period, has created high
visibility & awareness of the brand."

Slim 10/10 was successfully introduced in three other European countries:
to date, Slim 10/10 is on shelf in 1600 pharmacies in Spain and at key
retailers such as El Corte Ingles, in 1200 pharmacies in Belgium and in 400
pharmacies in Portugal.

ingredient, which can be safely taken orally, or added to normal food, taken
at breakfast and/or lunch. The single dose product is packed in convenient
