Record numbers have signed up for Veganuary this year. Whether it’s due to their love of animals, wanting to make an impact on the world, or they want to better their health, over 250,000 people have made a pledge to the vegan diet in January since the ‘Veganuary’ movement started five years ago.
Veganism has been everywhere recently, whether it’s the Greggs’ launching their vegan ‘sausage’ roll, or supermarkets creating new product ranges, making it far easier (and tastier) for people to eat a plant-based diet.
One company making being vegan more convenient is Food Tech start up, allplants. From their kitchen, allplants use bold flavours and hyper convenience to bring more plants onto plates across the UK, inspiring us all to eat healthy and nourish the planet - delivering chef-made meals nationwide. Launching in 2017, the team have already received culinary awards for their products, delivered over 250,000 meals straight to customers’ doors and built a community of over 70,000 loyal fans.
As part of our partnership with YFood, we’ll be joined by Fraser Williams from allplants this Wednesday (9th January) as our next ‘YFood Tech Wednesdays’ event. Fraser will be discussing what has made allplants and their products so successful and how eating a vegan diet can help your health and the environment.
Fraser says he gets his drive from building powerful brands that inspire consumers to purchase great products doing great things for the planet. Previously, Fraser received funding from Techstars and some of London's top angel investors to launch and build his startup, Repairly; the first on-demand technology repair service in London, encouraging people to repair instead of replace their broken technology. At allplants, he powers growth of the business to change the world for the better through great tasting plant-powered food, leading on all Affiliate, Direct and Brand Partnership.
The team of chefs, world changers and health-savvy foodies at allplants are making it easy to lead healthier and more sustainable lives, without compromise and with minimum effort.
Come along to the next YFood Tech Wednesdays event, 9th January at Leaf on Portland Street in Manchester, to hear allplant's story. This will be followed by an interactive discussion before drinks and networking. It is free to attend, but spaces are limited by capacity and registration is essential.
