Olivia Wollenberg- Founder of Livia's


Livia's creates scrumptious and indulgent treats that can be enjoyed by anyone. The must try range is vegan, free from gluten and dairy, and made from the best, most simple ingredient.s The packaging is also recyclable.

Olivia Wollenberg founded Livia’s in 2014 when she first launched her Superfood Crumbles exclusively in Selfridges. The company was born out of her own diagnosed food intolerances which prevented her from being able to eat her favourite treats like biscuits and chocolate. Olivia noticed that whilst the free-from market was fairly large, there was a distinct lack of products free from gluten, dairy and refined sugars, but also free-from preservatives and additives. The products that were free-from all of these ingredients were neither delicious, nor indulgent. There was a clear gap in the market. Olivia’s aim was to fill this gap and to make free-from treats simple, indulgent, fun and accessible.

Victoria Omobuwajo, Founder of Sunmo:


"Growing up in a Nigerian family, our tiny East London flat was always crammed with people coming together to share in life, laughter and food. In Nigeria this is known as Sunmo. I first created these delicious Plantain snacks in my mum's kitchen andhave refined the recipe along with my mantra - Eat Good, Feel Good and Do Good. Sunmo is a snack that gives back, with every packet sold providing a meal for an orphaned child in Nigeria."
