But his strong will and company principles survived world wars, social, economic and political changes and scientific discussions. Read on

Mama Natura® wins the silver!

In 2011, DHU created an umbrella brand for global roll-out, developed specifically for children, under the name ‘mama natura®’. The portfolio comprises homeopathic combination products that are indicated for common mild ailments and problems that children are exposed to, at different phases of their life, from 0-6 years.

The market launch of the brand was initiated and executed by DHU Iberica, Spain in the same year.

In July 2013, the DHU International division, with their branding agency Dew Gibbons & Partners, submitted the ‘mama natura®’ brand to the DBA Design Effectiveness Awards 2014.

The DBA Design Effectiveness Awards are run annually, and are the UK's most vocal champion of the role of effective design in the creation of business growth. It is the only award scheme that uses commercial data as key judging criteria. They demonstrate the importance of integration of the design brief with business aims and objectives, and the submitted case studies also serve to demonstrate the return on investment that a coherent, well-thought-out and professionally executed design strategy can achieve.

There were 19 categories that a brand could enter into and ‘mama natura®’ was submitted into the ‘Brand Identity’. Hundreds of entries were submitted, and at the end of 2013, 69 brands were notified that they would receive Gold, Silver or Bronze at the official awards, and ‘mama natura®’ was announced as one of the 69 winners!

On 13th February 2014, two directors of DHU Germany and Iberica attended the prestigious DBA Design Effectiveness Awards gala evening, as guests of the branding agency, Dew Gibbons & Partners, and it was announced that ‘mama natura®’ had received the Silver award!
