Nexus now sports an innovation award

A Gold Coast sports nutrition company that had its foundation in the lead-up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games is now enjoying its own golden run.

Nexus Sports Nutrition was launched in 2017 as a one-person operation while founder Adam Jarrett was completing his university degree and working at the Commonwealth Games.

Mr Jarrett recognised a gap in the market for high-quality Australian supplements and started the business to meet the demand.

He was soon joined in the business by co-director Shane Berland and the pair have steered the company through a period of incredible growth.

The Molendinar company now employs more than 75 people, and sells more than 250,000 units a month through a network of more than 3000 distribution points throughout Australia, New Zealand, and New Caledonia.

The company’s incredible achievements has been recognised in the Gold Coast Business Excellence Awards, with Nexus Sports Nutrition winning the Mayor’s Innovation Award.

Nexus Sports Nutrition will now be one of only six companies that will compete for the annual award in November.

Mr Jarrett said the company started by partnering with gyms and fitness centres to ensure its products were where fitness enthusiasts shopped.

“We cater primarily to fitness enthusiasts and health-conscious individuals, who seek convenient and effective ways to enhance their well-being,’’ said Mr Jarrett.

“By providing products that are both effective and convenient, we empower our customers to prioritise their health without sacrificing taste or disruption to their daily lives.”

Mr Berland said Nexus Sports Nutrition prided itself on innovation and new product development.

“We have continued to lead in product innovation by successfully launching a groundbreaking protein sparkling water product that has captured the market's attention and is replacing traditional sugary soft drinks,” said Mr Berland.

“Super Protein Sparkling Water is an industry first and was developed to meet the growing demand for convenient, refreshing, and dairy-free protein options.”
