What sets us apart

It all began with a chance encounter...

The late 1960’s were an exciting time. Mankind landed on the moon. BBC Radio 1 was launched. And Alpen was born! A senior Weetabix executive was enjoying a family skiing holiday in Switzerland when he discovered a weird and wonderful breakfast created for him by his personal chef. He was so smitten by the intriguing cereal and how it kept him going on the slopes that he brought the recipe back to our Burton Latimer HQ. His colleagues were so impressed that work began on the first Alpen recipe. Launched in 1971, it was the UK’s first Swiss muesli. Over 45 years on, it remains the nation’s No.1 and has inspired a whole range of other products.

What sets us apart?

We started life as the UK’s first ever muesli. By its very nature, muesli is a ‘mixture’ of ingredients, blended to create something wholesome and nutritious yet incredibly tasty. This remains the inspiration behind all our products. We combine natural, wholesome oats and wheat with delicious fruits, nuts and seeds to bring you tasty breakfasts that will give you a positive start to the day, or top you up when you need a boost.
