Tech investment transforms the snack market
The new facility will allow the brand’s to slow-bake its snacks that is able to incorporate up to 45% whole, fresh vegetables.
Our team took this investment as an opportunity to showcase the efforts made by the Mackie’s team to revolutionize the snacking industry and introduce the product to supermarket buyers and potential customers across the country.
This involved drafting a press release and pitching the story to local, national and specialist news outlets, spreading the word and making some noise about what shelves will soon be stocked with.

This has not only drawn in interest from consumers and supermarket buyers, but has also contributed towards building up Wholesums, helping it to become a widely-recognised name.
Wholesums was launched in 2019 as a breakthrough healthy popped chip brand.
