SRSLY & buck'n'bird
Welcome to SRSLY, where we're all about delicious keto food that brings joy to your taste buds. If you haven't tried BUCK'N'BIRD yet, you're in for a treat! Imagine the savory goodness of meaty salami combined with the satisfying crunch of crisps – that's what BUCK'N'BIRD is all about. We're thrilled to share more about this fantastic brand with you.
How did you start your brand?
The journey of creating BUCK'N'BIRD began with a personal health revelation. After discovering unexpectedly high cholesterol levels during a routine doctor's visit, I understood the underlying causes and explored potential lifestyle changes. This exploration led me to the research of Professor Noakes, who challenged conventional dietary beliefs and emphasized the role of carbohydrates in inflammatory diseases. Inspired by his findings, I adopted a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet, experiencing remarkable results.
Navigating the challenges of this new dietary regimen, particularly in social settings and snacking, sparked a creative moment during an evening with a crisp-loving friend. As a South African with a deep appreciation for meat, the idea struck us: "What if we could create a snack that combines the satisfying crunch of crisps with the savory essence of meat?" This spark ignited the concept of BUCK'N'BIRD - a fusion of two beloved snacks into one innovative delight. And so, the journey of BUCK'N'BIRD began, driven by a quest for healthier snacking alternatives and a passion for culinary innovation.

What has been your personal highlight since starting the brand?
Since launching our brand, one of the standout moments for me has been the acknowledgment of the excellence of our salami crisps. Winning our first Great Taste Award and securing gold at the Great British Food Awards was incredibly gratifying. As an entrepreneur, there's always a degree of uncertainty surrounding your own products, and you constantly strive to ensure they're the best they can be. For us, it was about prioritizing the quality of the product over flashy marketing or packaging. These awards validated our approach and served as a proud testament to the dedication and effort we poured into crafting an exceptional product. It reinforced our belief that prioritizing quality pays off in the end, and it's a moment I cherish deeply.
What has been your biggest learning?
One of the most profound lessons I've learned on this journey is the importance of appreciating the people around you and taking the time to listen to them. As I've delved into the world of creating brands and products, I've come to realize the immense effort and dedication that goes into each venture. Many brand owners are driven by a deep-seated desire to make a positive impact on people's lives, which is truly inspiring. Hearing their stories and understanding their motivations has been a humbling experience. It has taught me that success is not just about reaching a destination; it's about embracing the journey and connecting with individuals who share similar aspirations. By valuing the stories and experiences of others, we enrich our own path and cultivate a deeper appreciation for the collective journey we're all on.
