As an online leader in the diet space in the UK, it made sense to partner up with Waterfront Media and the operator of Everyday Health, America's number two health destination online. Our partnership will leverage Waterfront Media's proven diet products and brands in the US to ensure that both parties will continue to grow in terms of traffic and revenue

"This is the first of many initiatives for growing Waterfront Media's portfolio of products and brands globally. We are excited to partner with Tesco Diets and leverage all the assets of its parent Tesco to launch and market our diet products successfully abroad," says Ben Wolin, CEO and co-founder of Waterfront Media.

"International developments will allow us to further monetize our portfolio of products and brands in new and creative ways," continues Karim Farag, Vice President of Business Development.
