PIP SUMMERVILLE

FOUNDER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR

Born and raised in New Zealand among glass beakers, metal scales and packets of pills (don’t panic, the prescriptive kind) with her dad being a pharmacist during her childhood. Years later, Pip was  busy working in the creative industry which gave her ample opportunity to travel and realised that it’s kinda hard to lug around glass bottles of coconut oil and apple cider vinegar and thought: Wouldn’t it be easier to pop them in pill form?

“Personal experience has made me the biggest fan of natural elixirs, and I wanted to make it practical to indulge in them. It is my mission to bring a fun, convenient & no frills approach to the health industry".

Also referred to as the "In-Cide,” director Pip is on a mission to shake things up in the health industry, one capsule at a time!

GLENN SUMMERVILLE

PHARMACIST & PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Glenn has recently stepped back from the front line of Community Pharmacy over the past 40 years after a long and successful career. While he was looking forward to many a relaxing Gin and Tonic at his fantastic beach house, Glenn has picked up the challenge and is swapping his tonic for Tonik – for the most part!

Glenn Registered as a Pharmacist in New Zealand after graduating in 1977 following the mandatory four years of study. He has worked as Pharmacist in New Zealand, Fiji, United Kingdom and Australia for over 40 years and for 35 of those years has owned and operated Community Pharmacies.

A Natural approach to health outcomes alongside more traditional Pharmaceuticals and medications has always been a passion and Glenn has studied various disciplines along the way including Classical Homeopathy and Clinical Nutrition. He has a philosophy that a complementary approach can often lead to better results, preferring a pro-active ethos, rather than a re-active one. There are times when traditional medication may be very necessary to treat or control a health condition, but more often, a natural approach can lessen potential side effects, or in some cases lead to a gradual reduction in the need for prescription medication. 

As a young and relatively fit 62 year old, Glenn is really enjoying working with Tonik founder and daughter Pip. He lives a balanced life between travel, fishing, diving and mountain biking, while keeping his mind active with a business passion. 

Also referred to as "Poppa Nut" Glenn has his work cut out for him at Tonik HQ developing new formulas while ensuring the natural benefits of each ingredient is retained in its most organic and pure form.
