About this event

Suzie Walker is Founder & Chief Fire Starter of The Primal Pantry. A nutritionist by profession, Suzie has an immense passion for proper real food. Suzie transitioned to a paleo lifestyle 6 years ago and started to utilise the paleo dietary framework when working closely with all her nutrition clients. Their products are available in Waitrose, Sainsburys, Holland & Barrett, Wholefoods and Ocado.

The Primal Pantry story starts in late 2013 with some nuts, some coconut, a blender and a clientele of eager tasters she embarked on making her own paleo bars, the response was extremely positive.

Having finally found a production kitchen that would accept her very scrupulous ingredients criteria, we did our first production trial and the initial samples went down a storm with those that tried them.

With all recipes approved and packaging designed, The Primal Pantry was launched in February 2014 with 3 Primal Bars. This has since been extended to 5 delicious flavours, 2 brand new high-protein bars and a multi-pack format, with even more new products in the pipeline!

Having wowed the big retailers with the quality and taste of the Primal bars, you can now find them in Waitrose, Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Holland and Barrett, Wholefoods, Planet Organic and Ocado (alongside independent health stores).

Suzie is on a mission to challenge the packaged food industry by forging a real food revolution – honest food at all times!
