MY MOM WORKS FOR ME NOW… It began in 2017, I was 15 years old, when my (entreprenerial) mom started developing an ambient smoothie product I was “the taster” the fruity ones I loved but the “beetroot & spinach recipies” (Ugh) however, I did enjoy tagging along to the farmers market & various pop ups at weekends.

 

In our stock room I came across a kilo of roasted beans & peas that had been disregarded as they were not “smoothie suitable” … too crunchy, but “Yum” they tasted just like roasted nuts I began taking them into school (no allergens) in a knotted bag to snack on, & after sharing with friends they wanted their own bag of  beans & it wasnt long before I had my own little business going.

 

The following year Mom asked could she join my bean business and together Blendi Snacks  have gone on to get listings in Health Stores Nationwide, the Avoca’s stores & supply many vending machines throughout Ireland. In early 2020 we began exporting to UK & Canada.

At one of our weekly meetings Mom presented the idea of a Jumbo Pouch “it will cut down on cost Shane”, but I was thinking more of the packaging that would be saved. This concept has gone one to be a real winner for us.

 

I have got recognition from the “World Food Innovation Awards” & 2019 Great Taste Awards.
