Boost Bites was set up by Cliona Hegarty in the summer of 2014. Cliona made the leap into the Food Industry from Education where she had worked as a primary school teacher for 6 years in a junior school that, sadly, had to close during the economic downturn. Cliona turned a challenging time in her life into a fun, new adventure by channelling her passion for health & wellness into creating her clean food company called ‘Boost Bites’. Cliona was inspired also by her time living in Sydney’s Bondi Beach, where eating healthy, wholefoods on the go was easy. Encouraged by the reactions her unique energy snacks were receiving at Farmers Markets, she knew she had something special.
The Food Academy programme launched Boost Bites onto the Irish market & gave Cliona valuable support, guidance, knowledge & mentoring to confidently make her business retail ready. Today, Boost Bites employs a strong local team at our commercial kitchens in Smithfield, Dublin 7.
