allplants is a VC-backed start-up on a mission to become Earth’s most forward-thinking food company. We believe food is the bridge between people and planet, so we put social impact first, while feeding the world health, happiness, and love through delicious, plant-based food. Since launching in Jan17 we’ve bagged awards, serving >250,000s meals through our 5-star, online shop and subscription service.

Today we deliver delicious ready-to-eat meals to your door. They’re flash frozen, chef-prepared and totally plant-based - taking the compromise out of healthy convenience. From a creamy Cashew Mac to a rich and spicy Jerk Jackfruit, each dish we deliver is 100% cool for vegans and packed full of plant powered goodness . And that’s just the beginning.

In the next 12 months, our online offering will grow as we introduce new recipes, serving formats and eating occasions for our community of food, sustainability and wellness heroes. We aim to do for plant-powered food, what BrewDog have for craft beer: developing multi-channel expertise through owned and earned touch-points, while achieving what Red Bull have for niche sports within plant-based living: making it aspirational and celebrated through media, campaigns and events.

Our plans for 2019 and beyond are bold, delicious and daring - and our founders and investors are an experienced team of serially successful tech entrepreneurs, creative brand builders and flavourful food operators, all driven to truly transform food and have some fun while we’re at it.
