Launched in 2007, Prozis an “internet-based” supplement company based in Esposende, Portugal.
The company’s founder is Miguel Milhao – a self-described “crazy guy” who started the company out of his garage in Povoa de Lanhoso, Portugal. According to the brand’s Wikipedia page, it was soon able to invest 5 million Euros in a production facility, where it now produces supplements on a “large scale”.
By 2014, it was receiving 3000 daily orders and reached 47 million Euros in revenue. Within another two years, the brand’s revenue had grown to 60 million Euros – giving weight to its claim to be a “world leader” in the fitness and nutrition industry. While a popular brand in its native Portugal, 90% of its revenue comes from exports.
On its website, the company says that it does everything in-house. This includes product concepts, design, production, quality control, sales and marketing. And because it “breathes technology” and “drinks design”, Prozis says it’s able to “exceed” itself and produce what it calls “the best products in the world”.
As a respected and popular brand in mainland Europe, Prozis is – or has been - an “official nutrition supplier” for several sports organizations on the continent. These include Valencia CF (Spanish soccer club), AS Monaco (French soccer club) and Sporting Lisbon (Portuguese soccer club) and FC Porto (another Portuguese soccer club). The brand also the official supplier to members of the Serie A Basketball League in Italy.
The Prozis supplement range is split into three main categories: “Sports Nutrition”, “Weight Loss” and “Well-Being”. Its Sports Nutrition products include protein powders, pre-workouts, post-workouts, creatines, amino acids, fat burners and more. Its Weight Loss line features diuretics, appetite suppressants and dietary fiber.
In 2016, Prozis was named winner of Portugal’s Consumer’s Choice Award in the “Sports Supplements” category. That same year, the brand was also awarded the Exports Revelation Award in honor of its global success.
