Outside of Healthy Nibbles, Sara is also committed to supporting others. In her spare time, she is a Director of Vision Ministries, a Scottish charity working in Africa to equip through education, support through work initiatives and bring relief to those in extreme poverty through food, accommodation and medical assistance. In addition to this, Sara is keen to give back and support others and provides mentorship to early stage local businesses whilst also being an Ambassador to Women’s Enterprise Scotland and a Global Nourishment Advisor to the International WELL Building Institute.
Looking ahead, Healthy Nibbles’ overall strategy for future growth is to build a business with strong foundations, robust principles and have a team of skilled people who have similar goals and ambitions. Sara confirms “We are building for the future. We are socially, environmentally and morally ethical, committed to supporting artisan suppliers, the local community and other sustainable entities.
