Wallaroo is an Oxfordshire based producer of organic tropical fruit snacks that have been developed with the ideas that healthier choices can also be delicious and fun.
The company works with small community producers in Africa to ensure that their organic fruit is grown with the utmost care for the environment, and provides a fair and sustainable livelihood for growers.
All products are organic and vegan, BRCGS accredited from field to pack, and come from Global GAP certified agriculture. Wallaroo is also a Food for Life accredited supplier and a member of the UK Organic Trade Board.
As parents with busy lives, we've often struggled to find food options that appeal to our daughter. It can be quite difficult to keep up with the ever frequent 'mummy can I have a snack' requests that are really just code for 'I want something that comes in a shiny packet!'
We began Wallaroo with this very quest to create food that could come in a packet, was tasty and appealing to growing children, yet also nutritious and safe. A snack that we could let our daughter enjoy guilt free.
We established the Children’s Food Foundation to help provide a platform for government bodies, parents and caregivers to talk about child obesity in India. We aim to continue to support and help in growing this initiative.
We work with Fareshare (www.fareshare.org.uk) to ensure that a part of our products are distributed through charities and food banks across the UK.
We're very lucky to have Steve lend us his brilliant creative vision on the packaging design.
