About the employer

Clearly Scrumptious was started by two friends back in 2012 on a mission to produce healthy snacks which also tasted amazing. Their first range was aimed at the adult snacking market, and in 2014 a new range aimed at the kids snacking market was launched. They have since sold over 500,000 snacks, are sold in over 200 Morrisons stores and are available from the Shetland Islands to Guernsey in the UK and in countries as far away as Dubai. The supply chain is truly global, with products sourced from South America to Asia. Rick and James have big ambitions for Clearly Scrumptious, there are plans to develop further ranges, broaden distribution and become a major player in the healthy snacking market.
