Healthy investment to help nutritional snack company with an appetite for expansion

A £70,000 loan has helped a Liverpool nutritional snack company to expand its product range and sales reach.

Nutry Nuts was formed in 2016, by brothers Tamas and Mario Niszler, who originally hail from Slovakia.

They identified that, while many nutritional snacks advertise their high protein content, this is often accompanied by a less healthy high sugar content.

Nutry Nuts has, hence, taken the traditional peanut butter cup and created a nutritious, protein-rich snack that is low in sugar content.

Products also benefit from being vegan friendly, gluten free and contain no palm oil.

Following the success of its original product, the company has received the loan from NPIF-BFS & MSIF Microfinance, managed by MSIF, in partnership with GC Business Finance and part of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.

The funding, which was supported by the Government’s Recovery Loan Scheme (RLS), will be used to help the business meet increased demand for existing products and support the marketing and promotion of two new flavours, dark chocolate and white chocolate.

Tamas and Mario Niszler said: “The funds helped us launch two new products and expand our business, it is a huge step for us.”

Sue Barnard, British Business Bank, said: “We’re excited to be driving further growth in Liverpool, and it’s fantastic to see Nutry Nuts use this loan to not just meet demand, but expand its product offering and grow even further.

“We’re committed to supporting businesses like Nutry Nuts to achieve success and will continue to boost business growth in the Liverpool City Region and beyond in 2022.”
