Vegan ready-meal company ‘Allplants’ has raised £7.5 million in investments, from investors such as Felix Capital, VC firm Otiva, and vlogger Jack Harries.
Allplants is a London-based startup that provides vegan ready-meals such as Cashew Mac & Cheese, Wild Green Curry and Lasagne Noci.
The £7.5 million investment will be used by Allplants to develop its range of vegan meals, grow its team, and expand its production kitchen.
The new production kitchen will aim to operate on renewable and waste-created energy.
The packaging of the vegan ready-meals is already 100% recyclable, with some even being compostable.
The creators of Allplants said:
“We had 1 simple goal: to showcase how tasty, exciting, colourful and easy eating more plants can be. It soon became so much more than that. Our meals are chef-prepared, frozen and delivered to your home, ready to eat in minutes.”
“While plant-powered eats are healthier for people and plant, we’re attempting to go one step further, working towards a zero-waste future in your kitchen and ours.”
Co-founder Jonathan Petrides has explained in previous interviews that the majority of their customers are neither vegan nor vegetarian.
Embracing the growing demand for flexitarian products, Allplants has now sold over 250,000 vegan dishes nationwide.
