This top 100 startup sets out to change snacking so that healthier doesn’t mean boring or tasteless.

Their brand is built upon making simple swaps towards a better diet, using creavity rather than additives to make an interesting and tasty product. They use familiar snacks that appeal to the massmarket, they take away artificial flavourings and nasties to make a range of heathier snacks.

They may be a small start-up (for now…), but they’re on a mission to get the UK to change the way people snack.
