PACK’D is an innovative functional nutrition business that is pioneering Frozen Smoothie Kits. Its kits are the first to be designed with nutritionists to provide targeted health benefits: Energy, Defence or Detox. Each kit contains the precise whole fruits, vegetables and superfoods to make the ultimate smoothie in under a minute – just add your choice of liquid and blend!

They are available to purchase nationwide with Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Costco and online with Ocado. PACK’D have also started their export journey with Pallas Foods in Ireland and Costco in Iceland.

Their founder Luke Johnstone was recently named Amazon Young Entrepreneur of the Year. He is also an Ambassador for the Prince’s Trust who helped get his business off the ground from its roots in his garden shed at home.

PACK’D’s products appeal to the ever-increasing number of time-poor affluent urban young professionals who understand the power of nutrition to improve performance and seek more from their food and drink. Due to the mistrust surrounding processed foods, this demographic prefers to make their own food from scratch to ensure complete control and enjoy the nutritional benefits of clean eating.

PACK’D see their USP as continued commitment to innovation – constantly developing new products to fuel potential.

We look forward to working with PACK’D as they look to take their products across the Commonwealth.
