Protein Ball Co


In this month of belt-tightening there’s no need to cut back on treats

The Protein Ball Co.

This Celebration of Sussex Life Awards finalist produces nutritious, high-protein snacks that come in six flavours: coconut and macadamia; goji and coconut; peanut butter, cherry and almond; cacao and orange and lemon and pistachio. All protein balls are sugar and gluten-free. Bags are priced at £17.99 for ten with taster boxes (£18 per month) also available.


Founded by Catherine Lane in May 2017, FitChick produces health supplements for women, made with premium quality natural ingredients. The Beauty Bundle (£58.99) contains meal replacement powder, beauty pills, matcha green tea and a shaker. The vanilla bean-flavoured vegan protein is priced at £18.99.

The Raw Chocolate Company

The clue is in the name here with this Horsham-based company producing sun-dried, raw chocolate. All their products are vegan and all their cocoa is Fairtrade, resulting in a great deal for the Peruvian farmers. Try their dairy-free Salted Vanoffee Hazelnut (£2.49 per bar) and their Raw Chocolate Almonds (£1.49 per snack pack).

Infinity Foods

This Brighton institution started as a small shop back in 1971 and is packed with vegetarian products, fresh bread and seasonal fruit and veg. In winter you can expect Brussels sprouts, squash, spinach and swede. Head to the kitchen and enjoy some organic Kemptown Redroaster coffee alongside a fresh sandwich and vegan cake.


Based in Brighton’s York Place is hiSbe, a shop claiming to change the way supermarkets do business. Expect your usual supermarket produce, the difference being that they source locally, seasonally and ethically. Their bread, for example, is 100 per cent traceable, baked in small batches and delivered fresh every day.
