Callaly – the creator of the award-winning Tampliner tampon – has been included on the Fast Company’s list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2021.

The list honours businesses that have not only found a way to be resilient in the past year, but also turned those challenges into impact-making processes. It showcases businesses from 29 countries and Callaly was ranked number ten in the Design category.

“I couldn’t be prouder of the whole Callaly team for this recognition,” said Callaly co-founder and CEO Thang Vo-Ta. “From day one our mission has been to make the lives of people with periods better and we have consistently lived up to this promise through our innovations and commitments to quality, sustainability and campaigning. 

“Despite global challenges, this year has seen us reach some incredible milestones, from securing FDA clearance and exporting across Europe, to seeing our Tampliner – the first design upgrade to the tampon in 80 years – named one of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2020. As a UK start-up, to be recognised on Fast Company’s list alongside such incredible company is testament to the hard work and dedication from everyone here at Callaly and all those who helped us on our journey.”

Tampliners and the company’s panty liners, day pads and night pads are all made with 100% organic cotton and are free from dioxins, perfumes and pesticides.
