Why are we doing this?
The plant-based movement is the fastest growing lifestyle movement in the UK, for reasons ranging from health, ethics and the environment, as well as consumers always chasing new trends and products. This has created a surge in demand for high quality, delicious, interesting, plant-based food which is growing exponentially.
Many consumers are demanding more from plant-based options and are opting to spend portions of their week plant-based. We want to help businesses take advantage of this trend, keep current customers, and acquire new ones.
Our depth and breadth of experience with plant-based food, plus our immersion and strong business relationships in the plant-based and supplier community, makes us unique in being able to deliver this specialist work.
