Sales Executive | Leading FMCG Brand | London
Since discovering a gaping hole within the health foods sector, along with our passion for food and nutrition, we decided to fill this large void by creating a leading brand of healthy snacks. We wanted to create a health product that was genuinely healthy, without the added syrups and additives which most other so-called health foods contain. Since launching in 2009, our brand has delivered 375 million portions of fruit alone, which shows we are definitely making sure the country is consuming at least one of their 5-a-day! Our product is available in 18,000 outlets from Tesco's and Sainsburys to health-based stores for example Whole foods and Planet organic. From launching this rapidly growing brand, we have even had the opportunity to distribute our products globally, by starting to supply our snacks in 5 European countries as well!!
