As you are probably aware, The Vegan Box is 100% committed to finding and featuring as many small, Australian businesses that offer vegan friendly products as possible.
So we always get excited when we discover little brands who are as passionate and dedicated to offering Australians healthy, cruelty free, plant based products as us! Onedown Health is one of those brands and we are so happy to have their peanut butter crunch protein bar in the current August box!
We spoke to owner/founder Rachael Rees to find out a little more about her baby!
Hi Rachael, tell us who Onedown Health is?
Onedown Health is an Australian owned and operated plant-based protein powder, protein bar company that aims to deliver our customers the most tasty, nutritious, vegan and gut-friendly blends on the market!
Can you tell us a little of your history?
Our company started off as a gym! I am a qualified Master Trainer and ran a health food store at the time. I found it difficult to source the right stockist and vegan products to recommend to my clients and customers that reflected what I believed in. So I started by developing a product that I loved that didn’t have a gritty, grainy taste or was overly sweetened with artificial sweeteners.
How does Onedown Health differ from all the other brands out there?
Onedown Health has a Creamy Blend of Vegan Protein Powder and Vegan Protein Bars that were created with a clear purpose in mind, no false claims and only natural high-quality ingredients for real results.
Most protein powders are made overseas – ours is made with love right here in Australia. This means real quality blends with no artificial products and the best gut-friendly protein with no after protein bloat. All manufacturing is from here in Australia.
Our base ingredient is full of super-foods, plant proteins, amino acids and will give the right kind of fuel to power through the day.
Each flavour is achieved with top-shelf ingredients and superfoods. Such as; organic pea and rice protein, organic maca powder, organic chia seeds, organic flax-seeds and many more.
They’re completely raw, vegan and non-gmo and our packaging is 100% recyclable.
The most popular protein powder source is whey, which of course comes from cows. This is something we’re not about. The production of whey has a significant negative environmental impact and can be extremely sensitive to some individual’s digestion.
Therefore we created the first creamy vegan blend on the market, made with love.
They are not all you have to offer right? Tell us more…
We are on a life mission to help individuals live healthier, happier lives through easy, affordable and trustworthy products that actually taste good.
But now only that, at Onedown believe physical and mental health require premium products for both mind and body. Therefore, we have expanded the company in 2020 to offer customers the entire package for a healthy lifestyle. This includes premium workout equipment for both gym and home and a seamless active-wear clothing range with a positive message of confidence and self-love.
