Why have you changed from Fuel Factor to XS Sports Nutrition?

Why is XS Sports Nutrition a business game changer?
The sports nutrition industry in Australia is on the rise. In 2010, sales of sports nutrition products was worth $454.0 million, which has now almost doubled to $858.60 million in 2015 and is still on the rise.
People have always exercised and taken part in sport. However as a population, Australians are informed and educated behind the science of sports nutrition and understand the need for supporting products and supplements, hence why the category is growing.
Also, recent industry research suggests that consumers are looking for more natural options. This includes products that are low in fat, sugar and are free from preservatives but also contain superfoods. These are the main drivers behind the formulation of the our new XS Sports Nutrition range hence why they are free for artificial sweeteners, colours and flavours along with added superfoods.
