As we're fast approaching World Environment Day we wanted to showcase one of our suppliers who are very involved in concious production of their products. That's why we chose 100% Natural Foods. A mother and her daughter run this company and provide us a delicious Chocolate Brownie stocked in our snack boxes and in our vending machines. You want to find out more about them? Have a look at this!
// Who are 100% Natural Foods?
My mum, Charlotte and me started 100% Natural Foods from our home kitchen in Brighton. We make delicious raw chocolate brownies with a conscience. Our ingredients are ethically sourced and we try to look after the planet whilst producing our brownies.
// Tell us why your product / product range is unique?
Our raw chocolate brownies are naturally free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. We use consciously sourced dates, cashew nuts, sunflower seeds, coconut oil and raw cacao powder which are blended and compressed into raw brownies using 100% renewable energy. Because they are raw, the ingredients retain lots of nutrients and they still taste amazingly rich and chocolatey.
// Share the story of how your brand came into being?
When we were growing up my mum was always making raw brownies and other delicious sugar free treats for my brother and me. Whilst we were on a family holiday in 2012 we decided to turn my mum's love of making delicious natural brownies into a business. We started making them in our home kitchen and selling to shops local to us in Brighton. Four years on and we now produce the brownies in a factory in the Cotswolds and distribute nationwide.
// Tell us your favourite way to stay healthy?
Begin every day with yoga and meditation, it's the best way to calm your mind and body before a hectic day. We eat a balanced diet with lots of grains, green vegetables, pulses and fish. We believe that you should listen to your body's natural cravings so we eat a little bit of organic/free range meat and sustainably sourced fish. It's important to have balance and allow yourself treats, we love dark chocolate and a gin with fresh lime and mint!

UK employees with poor eating habits cost employers 97 million lost working days (or £17 billion) each year. CEO’s not only have a moral obligation to look after the wellbeing of their staff, but increasingly they will gain clear business advantage by putting wellbeing at the core of their strategy.
On December 9th, I am taking part in the world's largest sleepover in Princes St Gardens, Edinburgh. As I prepare, I have become acutely aware of the difference between my actions to voluntarily sleep outside for one night and the day to day challenges faced by those who are homeless.
