Beliefs

Breakfast provides many benefits to our health and wellbeing…

Breakfast provides the body and brain with fuel after an overnight fast – that’s where its name originates, breaking the fast!  Without breakfast you are effectively running on empty, like trying to start the car with no petrol! Nutritionists advise that breakfast should be eaten within two hours of waking and a healthy breakfast should provide calories in the range of 20-35% of your guideline daily allowance (GDA). It is also vital for our long term health. The NHS says “Eating breakfast has long term health benefits.  It can reduce obesity, high blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.”

Breakfast is an excellent occasion to eat together as a family when possible.  Establishing good breakfast habits in childhood and maintaining them throughout adolescence may be an important factor in reducing the prevalence of breakfast skipping and developing good eating habits that last a lifetime.

Which is why here at Deeside Cereals we understand that breakfast really is the most important meal of the day…

Sustainability

From field to family…

To help start the day the best way or as an energy boost throughout the day, you can depend on our Breakfast Cereals and Cereal Bars. Every bowl of cereal and breakfast bar is crammed with honest ingredients for long lasting taste and satisfaction. Natural and delicious, we believe that healthy eating is all about balance which is why producing products that are naturally nutritious is as important to us as it is to you.

Not only are we deeply committed to making delicious cereal, we also care a great deal about where it comes from. All raw materials used in the manufacture of our products, are free from genetic modification and comply with current regulations. Our suppliers have to meet these requirements in respect of food safety, inspect their raw materials before taking delivery of them and provide us with proof that they are fully compliant. We are deeply committed to the three pillars of sustainability integrating social, economic and environmental factors at the heart of our organisation.

Our Suppliers

We work very closely with our suppliers. Our partnership arrangements are based on specifications approved by the two parties and on the assessments provided by experts to ensure that every day our suppliers comply to our requirements. The traceability of our products is a must. It is made possible by the I.T. systems which allow all-process monitoring from the supplier to the finished product.
