After the huge awareness of healthy eating and nutritional foods across the globe, a local husband and wife team, Syed Salahuddin and Sana Shirazi passionate about nutrition, health, and fitness have introduced a range of genuinely healthy, delicious, ready-to-eat breakfasts and snacks to the Pakistan market and named the business Powerfoods.
According to the sources, the husband and wife team has done extensive research and tested dozens of original recipes after which they have started offering healthy and nourishing foodstuffs sweetened with only natural superfoods such as dates, honey, raisins, and figs, without the use of any artificial ingredients, cheap fillers, or preservatives.
The couple started their business by selling breakfast granolas from their home kitchen in 2019 under the name “Powerfoods”.
Encouraged on by boosting sales and no real competition in the local added sugar-free/healthy snacks space, the brand expanded its retail network in a very short time and its product line now includes granola bars, protein bars, cereals, high protein ice cream, and cookies.
