About The Business: 

Have you ever wanted to do something truly innovative & raw?  

You're going to have to open your mind for this one!  

This is a business backed by the brains behind some of the most successful snacking brands in the industry, you can lean on a board with more FMCG successes than you can shake a bag of popped crisps at.

Launch in the UK is scheduled for October into the major retailers - they've partnered with one of the top 4 already and are also in discussion for US expansion due for launch in 2019 backed with full marketing support for both launch dates. 

The plan is to create a brand that's bang on trend & in line with masses of social engagement with gatekeepers and consumers. This truly is the new way of successfully launching brands in the digital age. Combining this untapped consumer category sector with healthy products, spare time appeal and bags and bags of engagement and social tie ups, this is no ordinary FMCG food launch. 

You'll be helping to define a business that's due to set the consumer market alight and get industry peers and press talking.
