Lodsworth supersnacks hit the big time

Co-founders of a tiny superfood snack company in Lodsworth, Emma Graver and Ramon Vivo, are celebrating after their handmade FitBites found their way onto the shelves at Selfridges in London, Manchester and Birmingham.

The introduction of FitBites coincides with the world-famous store’s launch of its largest new department dedicated to all things body, from swimwear, to nightwear and lingerie. FitBites takes centre stage in the Food Hall and in the prestigious ‘Ultra Lounge’, alongside some of the most famous brands in the world.

It’s impossible for the thousands of shoppers to miss the brightly-coloured boxes and pouches, which retail at £2.99 and feature some of the most exciting and nutritious superfood ingredients around.

Emma and Ramon have been making the little snack balls by hand in Lodsworth for almost two years. Emma said: “We’ve had an incredible journey so far, and making it onto the shelves of Selfridges feels like such an achievement. There are a lot of energy bars on the market but we hope we have found our niche.”

“We were incredibly fortunate to have the close and constant attention of the Selfridges marketing and buying team,” said Ramon, “who were there every step of the way to make sure FitBites got the best possible start in the store.”
