food made well
THERE IS NO ONE SIZE FITS ALL
Your customers already love you for what you do well, so we work with that as a starting point, and then look at opportunities to create more options for customers with specific dietary needs.
NOT EVERY DISH NEEDS TO BE 100% PLANT BASED OR ALLERGEN-FREE
Creating more planet-friendly, plant based menus, and those that provide more choice for customers with allergies or intolerances doesn't have to mean a complete black out on animal products, or a complete overhaul of your menu.
It's all about making your menu more inclusive, so that customers have more choice, so they choose your business when dining out. We can help you do this smartly.
Not every dish needs to be 100% plant based to help reduce carbon emissions. Simply by reducing meat and dairy in dishes you can help make a difference. Flexitarians will be happy about that too.
THE REAL MEAL DEAL
We will always choose to create menus with real ingredients, rather than using ingredients or products that are either artificial or highly processed. We believe health conscious customers want the real deal, not food substitutes. Plus many of the processed ingredients contain allergens such as soy, wheat and nuts added to them, so in using them, you risk limiting your customer base who can eat them.
But if you do want to explore the many innovative 'meat alternative' options becoming available we can work with you and your team to find a happy balance.
