RH Amar, the UK’s leading fine food importer and distributor, has extended its snacking portfolio with the addition of Wellaby’s gluten free snacking range to its line-up.
Offering shoppers high quality, healthy snacks with exciting flavour combinations, Wellaby’s gluten free snacking range combines great taste with strong nutritional values, and will tap into the 15% of households that avoid gluten, with this figure rising to 21% for those aged 25-34*.
Wellaby’s healthy snacks are also well positioned to attract the 97% of adults taking part in the snacking category**, and the range is baked not fried, uses only natural ingredients, and is low in fat and free from preservatives. The use of core ingredients such as high protein Lentils in the Lentil Chip range further boost the range’s health credentials, while its gluten free Hummus Chips combine iron, vitamin B1, and chickpea flour which is another good source of protein.
Wellaby’s 120g Kalamata Olive and Hummus Chips are currently available in Sainsbury’s, and the full range has a strong presence in convenience, health and independent retailers.
