Without finding any options both healthy and enjoyable, Noha set out to fix that problem.
Her solution? Tasty and nourishing snacks made with pure, wholesome ingredients to satisfy your cravings at anytime or anywhere, while lifting your mood and leaving you feeling energized.

In 2010, Peeled Snacks supported the implementation of solar panels at the farm, helping to create a more sustainable planet through clean energy.

It’s Peeled Snacks' commitment to only partner with suppliers who are just as committed to supporting and growing their organic farms and upholding the UN Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
