This London business was started in 2015 by marathon runner Pip Murray, 29, who saw the potential of peanut butter as a post-run snack but was disappointed with existing products on the market, which were high in sugars and additives. The business now sells its range of healthy nut butters and almond milks online and through 4,000 stores in the UK and Europe, including Sainsbury’s, Asda, Selfridges and Boots, and saw sales quadruple to £3.1m in 2016. Investment from food and drink entrepreneur and former Innocent director, Giles Brook, has helped the company expand overseas, including September’s launch in 900 supermarkets across the Netherlands.
