Here at Creative Nature, we believe that allergies or intolerances shouldn’t stop you from having brilliant tasting food. There’s an overwhelming number of people in the UK alone who have to be gluten free, dairy free, nut free and more, so we created that products are Top 14 Allergen free and Vegan. Now no one has to be left out anymore! We’ve made sure that none of our products have any ‘may contains’, and have strict procedures within our facilities to make sure that our products are completely Top 14 Allergen Free.
Our products have won a whole range of awards, proving top 14 allergen free doesn’t have to mean taste-free. Our healthy snack bars have won more Great Taste Gold stars than any other cold pressed range in history! Our Chocolate Cake mix has won both the Free From Food Awards 2020 and the Grocer New Product Awards 2020 (beating Cadbury’s Indulgent Brownie Mix!). In the Quality Food Awards 2020, our Creamy Mylk Gnawbles won the Vegan Snacking Category while our HazelNOT Gnawbles won the Free From Sweet Snacks Category. Not to mention, as a business, we won the Food and Drink Business of the Year West London Business Award 2022 and were crowned National SME of the year in 2018 at FSB awards.
We make sure to source the highest quality ingredients to maximize the health benefits to you, and ensure our products don’t contain the harmful heavy metals that can often be found in cheaper products. Our Barley Grass, for example, is from the rolling hills of Canterbury, New Zealand, an area renowned for producing the most nutrient-rich crop on the planet.
At Creative Nature, we care about the environment and work to make sure we have the most sustainable packaging that we can without compromising the safety of our products. All of our products are palm oil free and we are very selective with our ingredient suppliers so that we can make sure they have the following policies in place: Anti-Slavery, Anti-Animal Cruelty and Anti- Child Labour.
Roughly 20% of the UK population suffers from food intolerances and over 2 million people in the UK suffer from food allergies. Here at Creative Nature, our mission is to create great tasting snacks, baking mixes and superfoods that are safe for anyone who suffers from any of the Top 14 Allergens. We don’t think that dietary restrictions, intolerances or allergies should stop you from having food that’s ‘delicious without doubt’.
Our Founder, Julianne Ponan, suffers from anaphylaxis to all nuts (including peanuts), some seeds and certain additives. She found that when she would visit the free from sections, there was almost nothing she could eat due to sneaky ‘may contains’ or other alibi allergen statements. This is why you will find no ‘may contains’ on any of our products, we have very strict procedures in our facilities to make sure that there is no chance of contamination.
We want our products to be accessible to anyone. With that in mind, we can be found in over 16 countries worldwide. Within the UK alone, we’ve managed to launch our products into major retail stores such as Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Asda and T.K Max. For our customers that are more online based, we’re also available on our website, Ocado and Amazon UK.
With Julianne as our founder, our small team is 78% women, and focused on inclusivity and diversity. Not only do we do our best for our customers but for our team members as well. With several members working from home or even having hybrid shifts to best accommodate them. (Not to mention, one of our newer team members always brings a smile on our faces. Be sure to check out our Instagram to see photos of our office puppy Gimli.)

Sustainability at Creative Nature
At Creative Nature we pride ourselves on being as sustainable as we can. All of our boxes are made from 100% recycled materials, ensuring we get the most out of the materials we use. We currently have 70% of SKUs in recyclable packaging, with the aim to make this 100% when technologies allow. As a company we aim to advance alongside the technology used today to improve upon every aspect of our operation. Another achievement we’ve managed to accomplish is the fact that our loose fill is completely biodegradable and dissolves in water. Just another step we’ve taken to ensure our contribution to the planet is a positive one.
We’re also manufactured locally, and by opting for packaging companies here in the UK, we reduce transport miles and our carbon footprint. And by re-use palm oil to reduce deforestation in the rainforest, destruction of habitats and reduction of biodiversity, Creative Nature continues to fight alongside the planet, rather than contribute to its destruction.
