Winners! - The Food Foundation #PeasPlease Award
We are thrilled to have been awarded the Innovation Prize at The Food Foundation #PeasPlease Prizes for our Plantilicious range, and over the moon that Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall himself announced the winners at River Cottage!
Planticilious is our tasty and nutritious plant-based range for workplaces, and the prize recognises our commitment to innovation and boosting vegetable consumption.
Liz Forte, our Director of Health and Wellbeing, said: “We are delighted to have won the Innovation Prize. We are really proud of our Plantilicious range, which puts plant forward food at the heart of our dishes. We have continued to evolve and develop the offer, listening to our consumer feedback. Sales of plant forward dishes are in strong growth and continue to build, currently representing 40% of our food offer. As well as encouraging healthier eating, plant forward is also more sustainable too, as our dishes increase the use of seasonal and locally sourced food.
“Following the announcement of our commitment to reach Climate Net Zero by 2030, new innovations such as the Plantilicious range, contribute towards achieving our targets.”
