Sussex Life Food + Drink Awards and The Protein Ball Co

Vote for us in Sussex Life Food + Drink Awards

March 15, 2018

Our Sussex based company and hand rolled protein balls have gone from strength to strength in the last year. Our team has tripled in size and we are now stocked in 17 different countries. Not bad for a company that was started by our founder Hayley in her kitchen, where she loved the use of raw ingredients so much she wanted to share them with the masses!

Due to all the success we’ve had in the last 2 years since launching, we’ve decided to enter into the Sussex Life Food and Drink Awards under the Food and Drink Product of the Year category. This category celebrates the best home-grown or home-produced products from the county, whether that is a literal cottage industry selling to its surrounding area, or a major UK brand created in Sussex.

So we are asking you, our lovely customers, to please vote for us in the Food and Drink Product of the Year category. Simply follow this link (it’s the second option down) and let Sussex Life Magazine know why we are so amazing. Here’s just a few things we can think of:  

  • We are just over two years old + our protein balls are now being sold in over 17 different countries.
  • We’re based in Worthing, West Sussex, where we have our offices, factory and warehouse.
  • We hand roll all of our protein balls + a lot of love goes into what we do.
  • We recently expanded our premises by an additional 3,000 square foot for our new warehouse and second production room.
  • Our passionate team has tripled in size in the last year and we now have over 30 employees.
  • The Protein Ball Co was founded by husband and wife team Matt + Hayley Hunt in October 2015.
  • Our protein balls are a healthy alternative snack and are gluten free, wheat free, vegetarian + contain no soy, GMO’s or added sugars.
  • We’re currently stocked in, Holland & Barrett, Ocado, David Lloyd gyms, Worthing Morrisons, Planet Organic, As Nature Intended, Revital, Nisa, Costco Wholesale and other independent gyms and cafes.

Let’s get the ball rolling! Who will be the first customer to enter us into the awards? Voting closes on 31st August so please vote before then. Thanks in advance protein ball lovers!
