Our Company

Food for biodiversity

We’re a mission-driven company, an organic pioneer and a plant-based food leader which purpose is deeply rooted in our business model.

Since our inception, we’ve championed a nature-kind way of farming and a food system reimagined from the soil up. Let’s put biodiversity on the menu!

Here’s how…

Mission & Vision

What? A healthy food system for everyone that grows and protects biodiversity.
How? By reforming the food industry from within, from soil to table.

Biodiversity & Responsibility

Positivity-packed and brimful of meaningful change. We’ve been leading the way in responsible food for decades. Plant to plate, boardroom to breadboard.

Our Brands & Products

A plucky band of organic and vegetarian-first food and drink with biodiversity at their beating heart.

Our Story

As Europe’s leader in biodiversity-boosting food, we are all about the good stuff – specialising in organic, vegetarian, Fairtrade and dairy alternatives. Small enough to care, big enough to have an impact.

Leadership Team

Our game-changing vision comes from our business leaders and employees who think differently. Why stick with a broken food system? Only dead fish go with the flow.
