"Jersey has only added to our credibility and reputation."
Jersey’s central geographical location, along with the respect that the Island garners around the world were the two main deciding factors for Clasado BioSciences when deciding to move the business to Jersey. They explain: “Jersey wasn’t necessarily the most obvious choice to establish the headquarters of a bioscience business – it is an island better known for its finance and legal sectors. However, in business dealings with global clients and suppliers it was found that basing the company in Jersey has only added to its credibility and reputation.”
"Moving to Jersey has been a dream..."
Clasado was formed in 2004 as the result of research collaboration with the School of Food Biosciences, at the University of Reading in the UK. The research focused on a method of ensuring that the growth of beneficial bacteria within the human gut outweighs the production of harmful bacteria. This led to the development and manufacturing a proprietary ‘prebiotic’ in 2007 under the brand name Bimuno, which is retailed across the UK and US and internationally via internet sales.
“Activity is centred wherever the specific expertise required is located. This means that there is a great deal of time travelling between the UK, France, the US, Hong Kong and Shanghai. Prior to moving the business to Jersey the office was based in the Mediterranean. Whilst the weather was beautiful, the travel times and flight connections were horrendous – wasting 37 hours on each journey to the to the States just through poor flight connections.”
"What's not to like!?"
“Moving to Jersey has been a dream in comparison – you can fly directly into London City and from there straight onto connecting flights, with no overnight stays required and no time wasted. The company are delighted with the move to the Island and are extremely grateful to Locate Jersey for its very practical assistance in establishing our head office within its shores.”
"We have found the Island to be incredibly welcoming, both on a business and a social level... In Jersey the warmth is genuine..."
We have found the Island to be incredibly welcoming, both on a business and a social level, which has made the transition so much easier. In Jersey the warmth is genuine – when people say that they’ll give you a call to meet up, they really do!”
