Meet founder Susan Yule
I started Hungry Squirrel in May 2017 from my home kitchen after becoming intolerant to peanut butter and finding the alternative nut butters available on the supermarket shelves uninspiring. I also wanted to provide my children with a healthy, nutritious spread that was not full of refined sugar and palm oil. I began creating all-natural nut butters with exciting flavour profiles and then began selling at local farmers markets in my hometown of Aberdeen. I wanted to create a healthy yet delicious product that everyone could enjoy, my range of nut butters are all vegan, refined sugar free, contain no palm oil, are naturally gluten free and above all… full of flavour! I now retail throughout Scotland via independent retailers and my online store which serves customers from all over the UK and further afield. The business is now just over 3 years old and I moved to a commercial kitchen premises in January 2019 to scale up production. I am currently engaged with manufacturers in both the UK and the US with a view to outsourcing production to scale up the business further, with specific buyer interest from the US.
