Healthy snack brand Beam, whose snack bars are free of the top fourteen major allergens, including nuts, dairy and gluten, is launching in 450 Holland & Barrett outlets this month across the UK and Ireland.
Its seed-based snack bars, which come in flavours such as Cranberry Strawberry, Blueberry Lemon, Pineapple and Mint Chocolate, are also vegan and high in fibre. The bars contain ingredients such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds and chickpeas.
Shauna Blair, the brand’s founder, started it up when she found a gap in the market for healthy food brands that were also allergen-free. Her eldest son being allergic to peanuts, she was all too familiar with the anxiety surrounding finding allergen-free foods.
“This marks a significant milestone for our company as we continue to expand our reach and offer more people the opportunity to try our delicious and healthy snack bars,” said Blair
“Holland and Barrett is a perfect partner for us, as they share our values of promoting healthy and sustainable living. We believe that our nutritious allergen free snack bars will be a great addition to their product range and will help us reach a wider audience of health-conscious consumers.
“We are just shy of 1 year since Beam launched last September and this is an excellent opportunity for us to ensure that more consumers have access to healthy allergen free snacks.”
