The Champions Kitchen exists for one very simple reason, to offer school children the chance to eat and drink healthier! We do this by offering them the markets healthiest products which most importantly taste fantastic so children can associate healthier choices with delicious tastes.
FORGED BY CHAMPIONS
The Champions Kitchen was founded by a family of 4 brothers who all had the good fortune to represent England at rugby across school boy and full international level. Exercise and healthy eating was absolutely at the heart of this and is now at the heart of The Champions Kitchen. We exist to offer young people healthier choices which taste fantastic.
We are by no means a sports supplement company. We are a company that believes in real food and healthier choices. Drinks and snacks which are the healthiest they can possibly be but taste awful scar young people and actually make it more likely they avoid healthy food because they will assume it tastes terrible. This is why we make sure that we offer healthier snacks which taste fantastic!
We also believe in the power of education when it comes to food and healthy eating. This is why we invest in nutritionists and world class athletes visiting our schools to discuss the importance of diet and exercise with tomorrows Champions.
One of the most important components in any supply chain is its sustainability. This is why we do our very best to stock recyclable products when and where we can, however, food safety is also of the utmost importance which means there are times when this must take priority.
The Champions Kitchen is a true family business that understands the power of exercise and a healthy diet. So much so the Simpson-Daniel family gave birth to 4 boys who all went on to play professional rugby and represent England across schoolboy and full international levels. This experience and core family values is at the very heart of The Champions Kitchen and its mission.
