Alexi, the Founder of Cru8, believes that a high-raw, mostly plant-based diet can lead to tremendous health, well-being, and productivity benefits. She has been a raw food advocate since 2009 and has seen the transformational nature of eating high-raw firsthand. Since the beginning of Alexi’s high-raw food journey, she has recovered from a pre-diabetic condition, released 20lbs of excess weight, and recovered from depression. She set out to prove her theory through her MSc (Organisational Psychology, City University) thesis research. Results from her research showed that a high-raw, gluten, dairy and refined-sugar free diet not only significantly enhances work productivity but emotional well-being. Alexi was subsequently awarded a distinction for her thesis and set up Cru8 with the purpose of transforming eating habits through her detox delivery business. To help her clients stay on track post detox, Alexi developed a range of snack foods free from gluten, dairy and refined sugar. Alexi’s first foray into retail was at the Saturday Partridges Market at the Duke of York Square in 2014. The innovative, nutrient-dense superfood products are now available at Selfridges, Wholefoods Market, Planet Organic, Revital and a number of other independent health food stores and delis.
