SO WHAT DRIVES HER PASSION? 

Alison’s passion has always been about delivering great service experiences. Her father’s premature death from cancer prompted her to consciously change her lifestyle and eating; and is also why she was so convinced in 2010 that everyone subconsciously ate according to their mood. Alison imagined what could be achieved by those who consciously ate and initiated the introduction of a nutritionally balanced Mood Food® range of products to help feel ‘energised’ and ‘chilled’. This brand now accounts for over 30% of Artizian’s sales revenue and on the back of its success set up a Nutrition & Wellbeing Solutions company – Nutrition Bites that has just launched Thrive an evidenced based digital nutrition & wellbeing subscription to help employees Thrive against the issues affecting workplace wellbeing today.
