Sam became a chef and picked up another language (as was the requirement of the course) allowing him to work all over the world. After a stint working in the London Hilton, he returned to Australia to work in five-star hotels in Queensland.
Returning to Adelaide, Sam started to work in food production; first with a small bakery in the Adelaide Hills before taking over a gingerbread company.
Sam had always been a sporty man but while he was in the UK, he realised how intense his lifestyle had become. Life in hospitality made it hard for him to eat well and get exercise. He then realised that many other people shared the same problem.
When Sam married Cindy, it was the bringing together of two like-minded people. They wanted their family to have a healthy lifestyle in a better place for their children.
Adelaide could provide the perfect place to raise their family, but they were now aware of the lack of “better-for-you” snacking choices. This was a gap in the market that they could fill. This would become the opportunity that would define the Tuckers.
