This UK company has created a range of organic sweet spreads, based on carob and sesame, which offer a natural new alternative to jam, chocolate spread and nut butters and are suitable for vegetarian, vegan and other special diets. The company also offers carob-based snacks and powders.
It now wishes to expand its activity into the rest of the European market by concluding distribution agreements with suitable partners with experience in the health food sector
The UK company was set up to produce and market an innovative range of sweet spreads, developed by its founders to offer a new alternative to traditional sugar-based jams, nut butters and chocolate spreads.
The spreads are made from only pure and natural ingredients and include no added sugar or oils. Certified as organic by the UK Soil Association and approved by the UK Vegetarian and Vegan Societies, the spreads are gluten free and are suitable for those following soya-free, dairy-free or vegetarian / vegan diets. Flavours include original (carob & sesame), date & sesame and chocolate.
The spreads have a wide range of uses including as a topping for bread, toast or crackers, with ice cream or even stirred into porridge (oats).
The company has also recently added to its product range organic carob snacks, sold in pocket and snack-sized packs, and carob powders (both raw and roasted) which can be used in baking, smoothies or hot milk. The carob for these products and the spreads is sourced from sustainably grown trees on family-run farms in Australia.
The products are sold via health stores, wholesalers and online. In 2014, the company won a Yorkshire regional food award for one of its spreads.
Having established the products in the UK over the last couple of years, the company now wishes to develop the market in the rest of Europe through the appointment of distributors who are at the forefront of the "free from" market or interested in entering it.
Based on traditional recipes, the carob-based spreads and snacks offer an innovative, natural alternative to products which are high in sugar or oils and are very attractive to those wishing to follow a diet free from gluten, dairy or genetically-modified ingredients.
The single-origin carob used as the base for the products tastes better than other varieties available because the trees on the family-run farms in Australia are carefully selected for quality and taste (unlike wild Mediterranean varieties of carob). The UK company is the only licensed supplier in the EU.
Not only is the carob grown sustainably, it is also naturally dried in the only nut-free and gluten-free carob processing facility in existence.
The products are competitively priced, for example the spreads are priced along the lines of nut butters or quality preserves, and the UK company can offer partners promotional support.
The company is constantly innovating and is currently developing new, interesting flavours.
Partners should be distributors with enthusiasm and interest in the product and good contacts in the health food / “free-from” foods sector. They would be expected to promote the products pro-actively in their territory and to work with the UK company to develop the market for these innovative spreads, snacks and powders.
