About The Business:

If you’re looking for a super cool London lifestyle with one of the fastest growing Health Snacks brands in the market, then this is going to be right up your street. We want health conscious people who’ll live & breathe this brand!

What these guys have achieved is phenomenal, only 8 years old and their turnover has reached the near £40million mark. Their YOY growth is staggering, boasting some of the best NPD launches the market has seen. I am in no doubt you’ll know who these guys are.

This is an award-winning brand with absolute belief in using real, authentic ingredients to produce best in class snacking, reaffirming their place as industry leaders. They are miles ahead of category expectations and sit comfortably at No.1 in the market. That’s not all, they’ve barely even started….

Massive NPD pipelines & a new directional focus in Brand Marketing is backed up by an incredible leadership team. They have also secured recent external investment to step change the business in capacity, ops and even drive their charge into acquisition. Needless to say, if you are ambitious…you will probably fit in here!

What should really appeal to you and makes these guys sit head and shoulders above their competitors is their customer engagement. They receive in the region of 3000 personalised letters of fan mail a week. Yes 3000 a week! The business responds personally to every single one of them, without fail every week too. These guys place the consumer at the heart of everything they do if you do too then we want to hear from you!

Culturally – As I alluded to earlier this is a business very focussed on their consumers, but also, they take massive pride in their people.

They’re a hungry and ambitious group who work hard but play better. They run breakfast clubs, gym clubs, run marathons, Tough Mudders and ooze the brand. Not to mention they also enjoy a few sherbets every now and again (once a week at least but don’t tell anyone). They’re London based so trips to cool bars are a requirement!
