The Team

Jason Wootton
Managing Director

Jason has been the Managing Director of Healthy Stuff Online Limited since 2018 after a period of working for the group as the head of marketing. During his early career, he worked in the insurance profession, developing bespoke insurance products for members of affinity groups and associations. In his spare time, Jason still uses his entrepreneurial talents to develop new ideas and businesses. At 21 he started his first business in his spare time hiring bouncy castles and soon progressed to running a chain a promoted nightclub events throughout the Southwest.

Jason joined Healthy Stuff at the start providing a lead in the marketing of the business and the growth of the UK business. After several years, he left the business to live in Spain with his partner and develop their own marketing company and build a successful escape room business.

After selling the businesses and returning to the UK to start a family, Jason returned to the Healthy Stuff family and has continued to push the company forward with his dedicated team.

One of his proudest achievements in the business is applying the principles introduced in the insurance industry of treating customers fairly and providing clients with critical facts to the healthy stuff tests to allow them to purchase a product or service that is right for them.

Jason and his partner recently became adoptive parents and loves nothing more than spending time as a family travelling, eating out and doing fun things together.

The future for healthy stuff is exciting, and Jason and his team work tirelessly to provide first-class service, innovative products and services and continue to be the worlds leading allergy and intolerance testing business.
