An appetising loan of £50,000 awarded to Midlothian healthy snack company

09 Oct 2018

Healthy Nibbles based in Loanhead, Midlothian is an award-winning snack company serving both corporate organisations and the community with healthy snack boxes to enable healthier choices to be more readily available.

The business was formed in 2014 when Founder, Sara Roberts identified the challenge of finding healthy and nutritious snacks on the go. Sara then took the plunge and decided to start Healthy Nibbles with a mission to grow the business and improve the health of commuters and workers.

Supplying healthy snack options for vending machines and offices across the UK, Healthy Nibbles also provide the option for businesses to white label their snack boxes for use at events and conferences which can also be tailored to suit the needs of the audience.

With plans to grow the business dramatically over the next year and with an expectation of a £2million turnover by the end of 2018, the loan awarded by Business Loans Scotland will support Sara’s plans of doubling the number of full-time employees to support the acquisition of new clients.

Speaking of the loan awarded, Fund Manager of Business Loans Scotland, Andrew Dickson added:

“Access to capital remains a major hurdle to many small and medium sized businesses which are looking to start up and grow. Often, our funding can make the difference between a business struggling or flourishing and that in turn will have a positive impact on employment, profitability and making communities stronger.”
