Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Brenner first developed Muesli for his patients around 120 years ago and is still a very popular breakfast throughout the world. His original recipe had more fresh fruit than grain. Our muesli has its own fan club, and is a twist on the classic recipe. Our Bircher Muesli has more flavour, which together with the power of Manuka Honey will give your morning a boost.

Manuka Honey Breakfast

We like Sourdough, it is more digestible than standard bread and way more nutritious. Lactic acids in the bread make the vitamins and minerals in the flour more available to the body by helping neutralise the phytates in flour that would otherwise interfere with their absorption.
