Who are VOOM? What is VOOM?

The Vision

 

We have been on a two-year mission to provide a tasty, portable and stomach-friendly alternative to sports gels, with twice the energy and zero mess. 

Drawing on core expertise from 20 years working in nutrition product development, we considered the key areas of palatability, portion control, energy delivery, stomach comfort and handiness. In short, we wanted a highly functional product that was enjoyable to use. VOOM Pocket Rocket energy bars deliver on every level. 

The ultimate test for our products is always: would we use them ourselves?

The Future


Straight out of our development lab door, we’re a stone’s throw away from both the Lake District fells and the Yorkshire Dales. Some call it research or testing, but we call it a great excuse to be out there doing what we enjoy! Team Voom are a fantastic group of athletes who believe in our products and test them to the limits to ensure we also provide great quality!

We continue to question existing nutrition product options and carefully craft balanced formulas, based on strong scientific research. Each product has a specific use within training or racing and together they offer a complete sports nutrition strategy, all in a convenient and tasty package.

VOOM’s products are for all of us who want to be confident that the fuel we put into our body will help maximise our performance!
