Founders – Devansh Jain Nawal, Ackshay Jain
As founders of ‘The Healthy Company’, Devansh Jain Nawal, and Ackshay Jain wanted to focus mostly on health products and then devised plans that could help them achieve their goal. The inspiration of such health products came when one of the founders discovered the medical benefits some foods. Their assumptions turned into definite ideas when they applied such meals on themselves and got some really positive results. And thanks to both Devansh and Ackshay and their love for fitness and technology for coming up with the idea of ‘The Healthy Company’.
Now their products have seen a significant adoption towards all ages ranging from the 20s to the late 60s. It’s been almost 3 years since their company got public and they are happy to say that they achieved over 50,000 success stories. Their dream of revamping diet and lifestyle in an easy and flexible way is finally coming to a success.
Starting the business
It was in 2019 that founders, Devansh Jain Nawal, and Ackshay Jain finally got the preparations done and launched their company. With the aim of building a full-fledged healthy ecosystem by increasing access to superfoods, affordable medical consultations and a community of health focused individuals, their dream was finally in motion.

Afterall hampering the quality of their products is the only barricade to their success. And since we are talking about this, fake companies or copy-cats have tried to replicate the company’s products and come up with some really scrappy products. This has been damaging for the company’s reputation at times.
