About The Business:

This is without a doubt the No.1 brand within the healthy snacking category, boasting some of the best NPD out there, with incredible distribution across Top 4 and impeccable YOY growth.

There’s no stopping these guys!

Turning over just shy of the £40m mark with only 8 years under their belt puts them as one of the best success stories within the FMCG market.

These guys want healthy food fanatics to join them on their journey and ooze passion for the brand. Whilst owned and backed by an international corporate, they’re very much left to their own devices to maintain an SME/family feel style across the business.

Culturally, these guys incorporate the brands values into their everyday life. Lunchtime gym clubs, runs after work, darts competitions and not to mention a trip to the pub for a glass of their favourite tipple.

So, if you’re all about leading an active and healthy lifestyle, this could be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for!
