Our first Supplier Spotlight of 2016 is dedicated to GathrFoods, who have created Crobar. These delicious bars can be found in our snack boxes this month.
// Who are Crobar / GathrFoods?
Crobar is our first cricket flour product; it is a natural energy bar, made of nuts, seeds and dates, as well as of course, cricket flour. We believe the trend of insects in food will really catch on so our future products like crisps and crackers, will be under the Gathr brand.
// Tell us why your product unique?
We are the first cricket flour energy bar on the market in the UK, and one of the first companies who are trying to promote insects in food in the UK
// Share the story of how your brand came into being?
When I was first travelling around South East Asia about 2 years ago, I was amazed at how many people were eating insects all the time, later I realised that a third of the world population actually does that. I have known for a while that food scarcity is an ever increasing problem, which we have to take very seriously. As with sushi about 30 years ago, people’s perceptions of food can change, and I thought by hiding the insects because we are using cricket flour, and making food products that are tasty and healthy, people will be more likely to give it a go. So far, this has proven correct.
// Tell us your favourite way to stay healthy?
I love the outdoors, so jogging and interval running is a big thing for me. I'm lucky to be close to Regents Park, which is a beautiful place to go running. Running is also my way of meditating, which makes me calm and gathers my thoughts. I'm too jumpy to sit down and actually meditate.

Last night, Healthy Nibbles won Best Scottish Innovation at the Scottish SME Business Awards. Amid the initial excitement, I took time to reflect on what an award win meant for us, and how awards may add value for other early stage businesses.
Healthy Nibbles have collaborated with the super talented and brilliant recipe creator Sam from Nourished Naturally. The first recipe is a delicious Raw Chocolate Mint Slice.
Today our Supplier Spotlight is dedicated to Sweet Freedom, a brand stocked in our Boxes such as our Chocoholics selection. They provide us a delicious range of sweet products to add on your porridge or your hot chocolate. We loved their products, now we hope you'll love their amazing story!
