Afslankbedrijf focust voortaan op wellness

Stefaan Michielsen


De internationale dieetgroep Weight Watchers gaat haar focus verbreden. Ze wil de klemtoon verleggen van afslankproducten en -behandelingen naar welzijn en wellness. De herpositionering gaat gepaard met een naamsverandering. Weight Watchers wordt WW.

'Er is niks mis met de naam Weight Watchers', zegt CEO Mindy Grossman in Financial Times. 'Maar we willen onszelf presenteren als een wellnessmerk. Dat gaat over meer dan lichaamsgewicht.'

De Amerikaanse tv-beroemdheid Oprah Winfrey, die sinds 2015 een belang van 8 procent in Weight Watchers heeft, heeft op de veranderingen aangestuurd.

Het bedrijf werd in 1963 opgericht door de New Yorkse huisvrouw Jean Nidetch en bouwde een business rond afslankmethodes en dieetproducten. In 1999 kwam Weight Watchers in handen van de investeringsmaatschappij Artal van de Belgische zakenfamilies Ullens de Schooten en Wittouck. Dat waren belangrijke aandeelhouders van Tiense Suiker, tot ze het in 1989 verkochten aan het Duitse Südzucker.

In 2001 werd Weight Watchers op de New Yorkse beurs geïntroduceerd, maar Artal behield een belangrijke participatie. Die werd de voorbije jaren geleidelijk teruggeschroefd. Met een belang van 22,3 procent is Artal nog altijd de grootste aandeelhouder van Weight Watchers. Winfrey komt op de tweede plaats.

De families Wittouck en Ullens de Schooten kochten Weight Watchers in 1999 voor 700 miljoen euro. Vandaag is het 4,85 miljard dollar (4,10 miljard euro) waard.
