Tesco Backit Crowdfunding Campaign

Please help us bring our range of natural breakfast and snacking products, to the nation!

We’re raising £3000 via Tesco Backit to enable development of our range of breakfast and snack products. We want to get the nation starting the day with a bowl of our delicious natural fruity porridge and to snack on our flavoured toasted seed mix toppings.

The good news is that Simplyseedz is ready to hit the supermarket shelves!

We find it frustrating to see so little choice in the supermarket cereal aisle, and so many with high levels of sugar or additives. For example porridge is perceived to be healthy, which it should be. But more often than not, especially the convenient on the go pots, can be packed with as much as 40 grams (i.e. 8 teaspoons) of refined sugar, making them a poor choice. You may as well choose a mars bar for breakfast (this is not recommended of course!)

Then there’s the healthier snacks, but again often they have added salt! Some snacks get dismissed because they can be perceived to be just too healthy, faddy or only suitable for those on a specific diet or fitness regime! Seedz are not just for the birds!!

Simplyseedz products can be enjoyed by everyone and this is the message we wish to promote. You certainly don’t have to be a gym bunny to enjoy our range!

We believe the opportunity for Simplyseedz is significant and can only grow. From little seeds to mighty oaks – well ok maybe a forest first, but it’s an exciting time for you to help us on our journey!

What impact will pledges make?

The pledges we receive will enable the business to fulfil its ambitions to further market our Simplyseedz brand. As a backer you will have our full commitment to get Simplyseedz to be the snack or breakfast of choice.

What are our business aspirations?

It is our desire to be the top snack or breakfast of choice and the brand that everyone knows, loves and trusts. We have lots of ideas waiting to be fulfilled, which includes additional flavours and products.

What have you achieved so far?

While we have made some great strides so far in our journey, such as supplying Gloucester Services (M5), Fenwicks Food Hall, Daylesford Organics and have recently launched porridge on Ocado and Amazon.  We were delighted to receive a Great Taste Award in 2016 for our Date & Apricot Porridge.  Simply, we just need more people to discover Simplyseedz. So there’s lots more to do!
