This month sees the official launch of fu:di, a new purpose driven food brand on a mission to improve the metabolic health of the world – one slurp, bite or crunch at a time. Kicking off with an extensive range of sauces, the fledgling brand is the brainchild of two entrepreneurs, Tom Redwood and Ben Calderhead, who have come together to create a portfolio of products that not only taste good, but make you feel-good too.
Curated by chefs, and backed by science, the fu:di range uses recipes that replace sugar with a curated plant-based sweetener blend, swaps seed oils with healthier alternatives and reduces net-carbohydrates. Fu:di is launching with 11 SKUs including; Condiments, Salad Dressings and Thai Chili Sauces, with more NPD planned to launch later this month. The full range is available to buy from werefudi.com and Amazon.
Hungry for change in the food industry, the Founders believe that by combining science and food they can build a brand that makes a real difference, enabling consumers to eat healthily, whilst enjoying the complete foodie experience. Using the combined knowledge and years of experience in their respective fields (Food & Science), the range has been created in response to their extensive scientific research, which shows that by keeping your carb intake down, whilst cutting out sugar and seed oils, you can improve your all-round metabolic health.
