Organix History Founded in 1992 by Lizzie Vann Entrepreneur with background in Food and Finance Knew there was an opportunity to improve children's food Started making food in her kitchen Acquired by Hero Group in Feb 2008 but have kept our identity £34M turnover FY10 Outsource all manufacturing
Organix Mission Why we exist: – To give Children the best start in life What we want: – A world where healthy, nutritious food is a real choice for everyone What we do: Best Start in life Create Good Food Empower Parents Challenge the Government & Food Industry
Our founding philosophies: Always Organic No Junk! Nutritious foods Safe foods for babies/children Convenient for mum, not niche
Create Great Foods - Introducing Our No Junk Promise NJP underpins our brand NJP is a trademarked stamp of reassurance present on all Organix Foods It is based on our beliefs and wish “to give Children the best start in life with no unnecessary ingredients and the best nutritional practices” This is not a legal or industry requirement and the definition of “Junk” is set by Organix It’s easy to make foods with them, it’s harder to do it without – but not impossible! We all live & breathe it!
SAFE We promise that the levels of harmful pesticides in our foods will be the lowest that can be achieved or detected. PURE We promise to only use ingredients you recognise and no unnecessary additives or thickeners NUTRITIOUS We promise to set strict limits on fats, sugars and salt that are far tighter than any regulations. By using higher quality ingredients to provide natural flavours and sweetness we believe in natural taste without compromise. So what is the No Junk Promise?
No to: Added salt Added sugar, sucrose, fructose, lactose, glucose Colourings or flavourings – including “natural flavours and colours” as they come out of a bottle! All our flavour and colour comes only from the food ingredients we use. Additives Emulsifiers MSG, yeast extract or other flavour enhancers. Hydrogenated Fats Minimal processing aids – have to be ‘kitchen-recognisable’. What we say Yes or No to..... Yes to: 100% Organic Ingredients.

Born in 2004! Range of foods especially created for babies >12 months to take the “perceived” guilt out of snacking Our foods are reinventions of adult snacks – recognisable to mum but with a twist Our focus is on taste, texture, nutrition & FUN! Snacking is essential to little ones – they need 2-3 nutritious snacks a day Our challenge for “good food” is slightly easier as babies have not yet been exposed to high salt, sugar & fat foods!
