How it started

Whilst studying for my second masters in neuroscience back in 2014 I was diagnosed with severe food intolerances including dairy and wheat. I found myself feeling low in energy and unwell after many meals and snacks. Prior to being diagnosed I was the biggest sweet treat guzzler. Frosted cupcakes, jam doughnuts - you name it, I ate it. But then everything had to change and my diet became so restricted.

I started shopping in health stores to find free-from products, but there was never a product that tickled my fancy. I didn’t want to
dunk an energy ball or protein bar into a cup of tea! NO THANK YOU! I needed something decadent and indulgent to enjoy at tea time. But nothing existed that hit the spot that was also natural and free-from ingredients I, and so many others had to stay away from. So I set out to create them myself!

I left my career in neuroscience behind and began experimenting with plant-based sweet recipes in my parent’s kitchen. I quickly discovered you could make the MOST scrumptious treats with the simplest of ingredients. The more I researched the benefits of natural ingredients, the more passionate I became about Livia’s mission.

Why we’re different

At Livia’s we have always been about indulgence and always will be. Taste comes first but so does using
only the best natural ingredients and we will never compromise on either. We are the only brand that innovates and makes truly unique and magical treats that are always 100% natural and plant-based.
