British snacks brand Sunmo has launched a range of Plantain Crisps to tap into increasing consumer demands for healthier crisp alternatives.
The products are made using fresh plantain, which Sunmo said is a starchy and less sugary relative of the banana that is highly nutritious and rich in essential vitamins, minerals and nutrients, including potassium, magnesium, and vitamins A, C and B6.
The gluten-free and vegan range is available in four flavours: naturally sweet, sea salt, smoked chilli and sweet cinnamon.
Victoria Omobuwajo, founder and CEO of Sunmo, said: “We are thrilled to be launching our first range of all-natural, hand-cooked Plantain Crisps in Selfridges and Whole Foods Market.
“The Brits are a nation of crisp-lovers and our mission at Sunmo is to revolutionise snacking in the UK by providing consumers with delicious and nutritious alternatives that satisfy their ‘crunch urge’, and that are also purpose-driven. Each pack of Sunmo sold provides a meal for an orphaned child in Nigeria.
“Our new listings will ensure that more Brits than ever before can enjoy Sunmo’s Plantain Crisps to eat good, feel good and do good.”
Sunmo’s Plantain Crisps are available at Selfridges and Whole Foods Market in the UK with a recommended retail price of £1.89 per 45g pack.
Bethany Parker, buyer at Selfridges, said: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Sunmo, who are really leading the way in terms of innovation in the category. Feedback from our customers about the offering has been incredibly positive.”
