New Flavours, new packs and a brand-new look
We’ve introduced some fantastic new flavours and given some old favourites a makeover. Our new range includes Mega Omega, Honey Roasted, Salted Caramel, Sweet Chilli and Warm Cinnamon (perfect for autumn!).

We are naturally nutritious
OK, so we might be just a little biased, but there are SO many good reasons why you should be eating more seeds. Toasted seeds are naturally crammed with real goodies like protein, iron, fibre, vitamins and minerals which makes them a super nutritious food for a healthy diet. The rich nutrient content of seeds makes them particularly good for those leading an active lifestyle and are a super supplement if you are managing an allergy through the food you eat, or are living to a gluten free, or vegetarian diet; in-fact many of our seed blends are suitable for a vegan diet too. What are you waiting for?
