Team helps slimmers fight against fat with their fantastic foods

Company name: Oh So Lean

Based: Kilkeel

The bosses: Sean and Connor Morgan

What does the company do?

"Help slimmers across the country win the battle of the bulge with its unique range of delicious yet nutritious products."

How has it evolved? Sean, an award-winning butcher, created a low-fat range of sausages and burgers and soon Connor's Facebook friends, impressed at his weight loss, were putting in their own orders.

After a short time the men brought chef Alan Truman, from Banbridge, on board to create some fabulous healthy soups, sauces and lunchpots.

Connor started delivering Oh So Lean products to drop-off points in different towns as the word spread.

Since then, the business has grown almost as quickly as its customers' waistlines have shrunk, with more family members weighing in to help.

The initial emphasis has been on developing the lines, refining the product and building a reputation for first-class customer service.

From the boss's (Sean's) mouth: "Our first priority has been the quality of the food and the fat content of all of our products is now less than 2%, which has been verified by Beechwood Laboratories in Ballyclare."

The future: At first, Connor was delivering orders to slimming groups and gyms across Northern Ireland.

However, this year has seen the company pick up orders in the Republic of Ireland too and with inquiries coming in thick and fast from Great Britain to the new website, ohsolean.co.uk, they expect to link up with Royal Mail to export their products off the island shortly.
