About UsHere at graze we're on a never-ending hunt for tastier, crunchier, fresher, better snacking. Why? Because we want to help people enjoy healthy living every day. We think snacks made with seriously tasty, wholesome ingredients and lots of imagination is a good place to start.

After all, it's what's helped us become one of the market leaders. Now part of the Unilever family, we remain true to our nimble, tech-led beginnings to find ways to grow our multi-channel brand within the healthy snacking market.

We're a bunch of like-minded people but we're not all the same. We're a diverse lot with different experiences and backgrounds and, like our snacks, we combine to make something wonderful. We support and celebrate uniqueness, so you can be your whole self, and blaze a trail for positive action to continue to support our people and planet.
