Spar is first retailer to stock calorie free and internet sensation The Skinny Food Co.


Spar wholesaler for the North of England, James Hall & Co. is delighted to announce its support of Lancashire start-up and internet sensation, The Skinny Food Co.

Available at 59 Spar stores across the North of England, Spar is the first major retailer to stock the company’s exciting range of calorie free sauces, having taken the internet by storm within its first year of trading, selling 1 million bottles.

Founded in Chorley in 2018, The Skinny Food Co. provides customers who are watching their sugar or calorie intake with a delicious, guilt free treat in both savoury and sweet flavours, with the range including Skinny chocolate syrup; curry sauce; salted caramel; smokey bbq sauce; white chocolate syrup and milk chocolate bites.

James Whiting, owner of The Skinny Food Co., said: “We are absolutely delighted that Spar have given us the opportunity to sell our products through a major convenience store, making the range more accessible to customers throughout the North of England.

“Our products have been available to buy on our website and through small independent retailers but Spar are the first major retailer to stock the range, and we are really excited to see how the partnership develops. All of our sauces are either low calorie or calorie free, with no added sugar and a healthy alternative to sauces that are usually laden with fat, sugar and calories.”

Whiting added: “Delicious in smoothies and coffees, with greek yoghurt and fruit or drizzled across a stack of breakfast pancakes, our products have proved a hit with thousands of consumers across the country, especially those trying to lose weight, manage medical conditions such as diabetes, or those just trying to avoid refined sugar.”

Julie McAulay, company stores director at James Hall & Co., said: “James Hall & Co. are thrilled to be able to support The Skinny Food Co. especially as a young and growing Lancashire business, and one that promotes cleaner and healthier lifestyles.” 

Due to the fast growing pace of the business, The Skinny Food Co. has now relocated to Nottingham in order to access quadruple the amount of warehouse space they first started in, also doubling the size of their team.

You can find The Skinny Food Co. range in Spar stores across the North of England.
