Pep & Lekker launches new vegan-friendly, healthy snacks range – Retail Times


Following on from the success of its organic, vegan-friendly soups collection, Pep & Lekker has extended its ‘healthier living’ learnings into the notoriously fickle world of better-for-you, vegan-friendly snacking with the launch of new healthy snacks range.

Seed snacks are a sumptuous 3-strong collection of organic, gluten-free snacks brimming with full-bodied flavours and healthy convictions.  Each snack includes more than five nutritiously nibbly seeds and a flagship ‘super ingredient’ (Brahmi, Maca or Wheatgrass).

In a world where the phrase ‘snacking’ is often associated with healthy living ‘time-outs,’ Susan and Juliette wanted to create a truly filling vegan/gluten-free bite that kept needless calorie temptations in check.

Available In: Cumin & Nigella Seeds, Fennel & Sunflower Seeds and Rosemary & Pumpkin Seeds.

According to co-founder, Susan Gafsen, “Pep & Lekker was born from an ongoing struggle to marry my personal passions for good nutrition and wellness with a hectic City career as a Corporate lawyer.  The nature of my career meant I was forever supporting successful entrepreneurs on their pioneering journeys.  My vegan son had historically struggled to find suitable snacks with even a smidgeon of appetite appeal, which gave me the impetus to forge a new career path.”

In an age where sugar remains a ‘tarnished’ word it’s also worth noting that Pep & Lekker snacks are the only seed snacks bound by apple (no oil!), which ensures not only a ‘low sugar’ profile but a recent commendation for a prestigious innovation award.

Each of the 3 ‘eco- thoughtful’ snacks is also available in a fully recyclable/compostable pouch. RSP for a 30g pack is £2.99.
