Creative Nature, which offers 14 allergen-free bars, baking mixes, treats and superfoods, is Food and Beverage Company of the Year at the West London Business Awards. Its products are available at Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Co-op and Ocado, as well as online
Allergen-free food company Creative Nature has won an outstanding accolade at the West London Business Awards to add to its collection of other well-deserved awards.
Creative Nature won the Food & Drink Business of the Year award and its apprentice, Ryan Scott, also won the Highly Commended Apprentice/Kickstarter of the Year award.
The ninth edition of the West London Business Awards 2022, which is West London’s biggest business event of the year, spotlighted the best companies in the West London area and celebrated the talent, entrepreneurship and resilience to national and international audiences.
The highlight of the region’s business calendar brought together more than 500 business people at the Black Tie Awards ceremony on Thursday February 10, held at Twickenham Stadium.
Creative Nature Founder and CEO Julianne Ponan said, “I am honored that Creative Nature won in the food and beverage category. 115 years old. We thought we had no chance and it looked like a David and Goliath situation! Creative Nature stands for change in the allergen-free industry and offers the top 14 allergen-free products for everyone to enjoy.
Creative Nature is based in West Molesey and Julianne arrived as CEO of the company 10 years ago this year – she was just 22. She reshaped the business, turning it into one of the UK’s leading brands in food-free snacks.
His colleague Ryan Scott, 19, who won the Highly Commended in the Apprentice/Kickstarter of the Year Award, was recruited last year through an apprenticeship training program to become a store and ‘warehouse.
He said at the time: “I love this place. The people and the atmosphere are not only fun, but also productive and supportive. I feel good working for a company that cares so much about the welfare of allergy sufferers and which provides healthy, nutritious snacks and baking mixes that are accessible to everyone.”
Julianne said: “I am absolutely thrilled as the founder of Creative Nature to be able to watch our apprentices flourish and get the recognition they deserve. Ryan is a real asset to the team and his award is a testament to his progression through the company.
Julianne started making her own healthy snacks out of frustration with the lack of allergen-free products on the market that weren’t loaded with additives. Julianne suffers from severe and life-threatening allergies. She used superfood ingredients to boost nutritional value and used her then-fiancé Matt as a guinea pig to get the flavors right.
With her team, Julianne has used her life experience to create products that work for people with allergies and intolerances. However, the products are popular across the board, as they are also suitable for vegans and contain less sugar.
Creative Nature, which is headquartered in West Molesey, offers bars, baking mixes, treats and superfoods, which are free from the 14 main allergens and are vegan and nutritious. Creative Nature products can now be found in supermarkets like Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda, Co-op and Ocado; large retailers like TK Maxx; online at The Vegan Store, Mighty Small and Holland & Barrett, as well as overseas across Europe, the Middle East and the Far East.
The company has won numerous awards both for its products and for the performance of its team. CEO Julianne Ponan has also been named among the Forbes 30 Under 30 to watch.
