Following another successful search for the cream of the entrepreneurial crop in East Anglia, Voice Communications is pleased to announce that Glemsford based producer of raw chocolate bars, cakes and other snacks, Raw Nibbles, has been crowned as winner of The One competition 2013.
Comprising of a husband and wife team, Sophie and Ian Simmonds, Raw Nibbles produces a range of raw products which are handmade to retain the natural goodness from the ingredients. Raw Nibbles use as few ingredients as possible in all of their recipes and the company achieves great tasting treats without the use of vegetable fats and animal products. All of Raw Nibbles’ products are free-from dairy, wheat, gluten, egg, soya and beet or cane sugar, and are suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
Raw Nibbles was established through a love of cooking and a desire to discover chocolate that was both free from beet or cane sugar and artificial sweeteners. As a vegan, Sophie also wanted to find a way of enjoying dairy free chocolate so the couple started to research products which ticked all the boxes. They eventually came across raw chocolate. Made using a natural process and created using just three ingredients, raw chocolate contains many important vitamins and minerals that are usually destroyed in the cooking process.
