We're Laura and Sean, founders of PULSÍTOS. Thanks for checking out our little piece of internet land. If you've come this far, we guess you'd like to know a little bit more about us and what we're up to? Well, here you go....
We're husband and wife, passionate about the outdoors and eating well. We always had the burning desire to set up our own business...so we've combined it altogether and given it a go.
We discovered broad bean snacks when we spent some time in Barcelona. We threw ourselves into the Mediterranean diet and ate everything we could get our hands on. One of us always had a packet of fried broad beans in our pocket.
We ate so many we thought it'd be worth trying to make our own and after a lot of trial and error we finally hit jackpot. We figured out a recipe to roast instead of fry the beans, creating a much healthier, far less oily and even crunchier snack.
It's traditional to simply salt the beans in the Mediterranean but we wanted to season them with something a little different. So we hunted down some great flavours and brilliant partners who could help us make it happen. All of our suppliers are based in the UK.
British grown snacks with a Mediterranean twist.
As for the packaging, we knew we wanted something to reflect the natural healthy lifestyle we believe in and this meant creating a pack that didn't contain plastic and wouldn't sit in landfill.
The real moment that grabbed us is when we were sat on the beach. Having munched on some snacks, we went for a dip only to find an almost identical package floating in the sea.
Plastic food packaging will survive in the sea for almost 500 years.
Why do so many brands put so much effort in developing amazing products on the inside, with zero regard for the outside? That's where we aim not just to challenge but inspire too.
It's expensive to go plastic-free and we've had a fair few sleepless nights but it's all worth it to know we're doing the right thing. Plastic is rubbish and we're doing something about it.
So there you have it. We're a business born from passion and a deep desire to do some good and leave a positive mark. Find out more about our mission.
We hope you enjoy PULSÍTOS wherever you are. We just ask one thing: put the empty pack in either the paper bin with yesterday's news or in the food bin with today's banana skin. Thank you!
