Two best friends on a mission to explore and eat their way
around the world from Sydney to New York to London. Suddenly, brakes, big
brakes. (That would be the children - one for Philippa, three for Tanya).
As time-pressed, food obsessed parents, we couldn't find any
great baking mixes on the shelves that we felt comfortable feeding our
children. We both loved to bake but didn't always have the time, energy or
range of ingredients. So with a flash of inspiration, we decided to put our
time and energy into making sure ALL busy parents had access to great tasting,
easy options for baking with or for their kids. Mixes that weren't defined by
sugar, that had fibre, nutrients, texture and flavour.
Having known each other
since we were 5 years old making mud pies in the backyard, the recipes bit was
easy, and we had lots of willing participants to trial all the products. With a
little bit of support from some amazing mentors in the industry and a lot of
research, Sweetpea Pantry was launched in 2014 with five products and a lot
more in the works.
