Shanghai, July 13, 2021 – IDUN Minerals and Aventura have entered into an agreement to further expand IDUN’s brand presence in the fast-growing Chinese market. Under the agreement, Aventura will act as IDUN’s sole strategic and operational partner in China, taking full responsibility for the brand’s cross-border e-commerce and marketing activities.
Founded in 2011, IDUN Minerals is a well-known Swedish clean beauty brand with products based on highly purified minerals. The products have been available to Chinese consumers through cross-border sales channels and have so far received highly positive market feedback.
“China is a key market for IDUN and this will be one of our major investments for the international market. We are looking forward to working closely with Aventura to achieve our ambitious goals,” commented Caroline Thunstedt, COO at IDUN Minerals.
“We attach great importance to the beauty sector on a strategic level because the sales of beauty products in China is rapidly taking off, especially through the e-commerce channel. IDUN has a unique market positioning and we believe that China will soon be able to make significant contribution to IDUN’s global sales,” concludes Gustav Astrom, CEO of Aventura.
As IDUN’s exclusive China market partner, Aventura will first focus on establishing and developing online cross-border sales operation for the Swedish brand. Over time, the plan is to gradually expand IDUN’s sales channels in the market, extending from Online to Omni-channel. The collaboration will be based on a revenue-sharing model.
