Our manufacturing site is BRC A+ accredited and is focused on meeting the technical and quality standards required by our customers who are predominantly leading consumer brands and leading retail groups that operate across international markets. Our BRC systems and processes are designed to integrate and support both the brand and technical standards required by each customer in a seamless way whilst being fully supported by our experienced Quality and Technical Teams. We are also accredited by the Organic Food Federation.
We continuously look at both international and home markets for consumer trends, market gaps, new technologies and new raw materials in order to create category leading “Better for You” snacks. We work with our suppliers to test new technologies and to expand our range of “Better for You” raw materials before scaling up from Pilot Plant and Development Kitchen level into our factory. In Jan 2018 we announced our breakthrough Therma Cycling Technology™ for “Better for You” pre-shaped snacks.
Our business is specifically structured to service and support Private Label customers. We offer bespoke private Label category solutions for “Better for You” snack products. These are created in partnership with customer stakeholders through our proven product development processes that are further supported by the key insights and learnings we gain from our extensive in-house innovation programmes. We fully support our Private Label trading relationships through the use of EDI, forecasting, MRP and logistical supply chain management systems.
We are leaders in the creation of “Better for You” snacks and we draw on our extensive knowledge of how to combine raw materials with our innovative fat free cooking processes to create bespoke products that meet customer specific nutritional profiles. Our supply chains, production processes and NPD resources give us huge flexibility in the range of bespoke products that we can make. Each project is headed up by a senior member of our commercial team to ensure that the customer’s needs and expectations are fully met.
Our “Better for You” snacks are Not Fried or Baked. They are individually cooked using a combination of heat, time and pressure. This means that no fat is used in our cooking process and only a light spray of sunflower oil is applied to coat our snacks in savoury flavours. We apply levels of flavouring similar to regular crisps so not only do they taste really good but they are also nutritionally better for you than everyday fried or baked snacks.
*Our snacks have up to 70% Less Fat than regular crisps.
Corn, corn with tortilla flour and wheat all make an ideal healthy snack base.
Soy products are naturally high in fibre and offer an excellent source of soy protein.
Potato is of course our most popular base. We also can offer carrot, beetroot and spinach.
White, brown and wild rice varieties are available with no added salt for making traditional rice cakes.
Full of wholegrain goodness making them an excellent healthy snack base.
Beans & Pulses
Lentils, chick peas, red beans, white beans provide a great source of fibre and base snack flavours.
We offer a broad range of ”Better for You” snack bases that are full of natural goodness (including organic) and make the ideal partner with a choice of popular flavours. Our high quality raw materials are formed as bespoke pellets in a range of shapes or are added as natural inclusions. These materials are all expanded under controlled conditions utilising our extensive expertise in popped snacking technologies so that we can create individual chips that make the perfect snacking base without the use of cooking oils.
We have developed specific product formulations that are nutritionally balanced for children and infants that contain no added sugar and have minimal salt levels. These products are supplied in controlled portion sizes that offer less than 100 calories per pack thereby meeting the requirements of Public Health England’s Change4Life Campaign. The campaign advises families to choose healthier snacks based on “Look for 100 calorie snacks, two a day max”. Typically our children’s snacks offer up to 70% less fat than regular fried snacks and are high in fibre, proteins and slow burning carbohydrates that help to satisfy children’s hunger pangs.
We source the purest food ingredients that meet the Infant Food Grade Requirements of the EU Commission’s Regulations and Directives. These ingredients are what mothers typically buy as fresh or those that they recognize from their own kitchen cupboards. No surprises and no nasties. We offer a choice of snack bases that we combine with a natural flavouring which is applied with a light coating of sunflower oil. We have a strict policy of not using Palm Oil in any of our products. Our infant and children snacks are also available in vegan and organic recipes.
Our manufacturing process gives us the flexibility to create a choice of different textures best suited for young children and infants as well as shapes that are ideal for eating as finger foods. One of the most popular requests we receive is to develop a snack that offers a “light and melty” texture suitable for the younger palate. We also have the ability to add natural food inclusions such as peas and beans that enhance the visual appeal as well as provide extra nutrition to each snack.
Our range of infant and children snacks all contain no added sugar and come in popular savoury flavours such as cheese or tomato as well as plain. These ingredients all contribute to a balanced nutritional profile (protein, fibre and slow burning carbohydrates) which are combined with a tasty savoury flavor application using minimal sunflower oil to ensure each infant’s Portion Pack is less than 100 Cals. Our products are developed to conform to the Department of Health’s Nutrient Profiling Model known as HFSS (High Fat, Salt and Sugar) to achieve a scoring that allows these products to be advertised to infants and children within the UK.
Our “Better for You” snacks are: Low in Saturated Fat, Low in Calories, Cholesterol Free, Nutritionally Balanced and can keep you Fuller for Longer. Our snack bases are available in both savoury and sweet flavours that will meet your category needs.
We offer a wide choice of base ingredients (cereals, grains, wholegrains, legumes and vegetables) that allow us to create Nutritionally Balanced snacks. Many of our snack bases are naturally high in fibre, proteins and slow burning carbohydrates. This means that consumers stay Fuller for Longer compared to when they eat regular fried potato snacks.
Our popped snacks have no Cholesterol and are Low in Saturates because we do not fry our snacks and only use a light spray of sunflower oil to apply our savoury flavours. This means you have all the flavour and eating enjoyment that usually applies to fried snacks without increasing your cholesterol levels or consuming double the amount of saturated fat.
Our manufacturing site is accredited by the Organic Food Federation and we have an established supply chain of organic raw material suppliers. Many of our products are Gluten Free due to our selection of gluten free raw materials (< 20ppm as the European Standard). We are actively meeting the Crossed Grain Logo requirements.
