We are a small team of just 20 people, based in sunny Worthing by the seaside. Due to our success, our team is constantly growing and everyone is super keen to work hard and get our protein balls ‘rolled out’ to as many people as possible. We are all passionate about what we do and have achieved so much in our first two years of trading. We’re just one big happy family in The Protein Ball Co Headquarters.
Matt + Hayley Hunt are the awesome husband and wife team that founded and run The Protein Ball Co. They met in 2001 in Spain and after creating a successful snacking business called OLOVES, they moved back to the UK to start their adventures in bringing protein snacks to the masses. Matt is head of International Sales and Hayley is head of Recipe Development, and together they form the power couple ready to take over the protein snacking world.
These lovely ladies are in charge of sales and business development. The three of them are based in the section of our office called “Wall Street” where they are busy making calls and selling us to mainstream retailers and wholesalers, as well as local, independent shops, gyms and cafes.
These girls form the marketing and events team. Up until a few months ago we didn’t have anyone dedicated to marketing and we don’t know how we did it! The girls do everything from writing press releases to blog posts, social media content to website updates, blogger to brand collaborations, local to national events, and creating all the imagery that goes with it.
Dawn, Jo + Suzi make up the accounts and operations department. We honestly don’t think the business could run smoothly if it wasn’t for these lovely ladies overseeing all aspects of operations, production and finances. They’ve always got their eye on the ball!
We recently expanded our premises by an additional 3,000 square foot for our new warehouse. Once our protein balls are made and packaged in the factory, they are transported to the warehouse where Warehouse Manager Sam monitors and delivers orders for both wholesalers and retailers.
This awesome lot are the people who make your protein balls. Every single ball that hits the shelves in shops such as Planet Organic, Holland & Barrett and Infinity Foods is made by these guys and they do an amazing job!
We recently started running a 24 hour production line in order to fulfill all the orders coming in. This lot do an incredible job of working through the night to ensure we’re not late for a delivery. Every ball is hand rolled by one of our factory staff members and we couldn’t be more proud to say we make our protein balls in Worthing.
