We're really excited to bring you some ground-breaking news for the vegan movement in the UK .
Our friends at plant-based food startup allplants have just announced the details of their record breaking fundraising round from a selection of leading food entrepreneurs, social impact investors and venture capital fund Felix Capital.
This is the largest venture-round raised by a European plant-based startup and comes weeks after a YouGov poll revealed 56% of UK adults think meat is unnecessary to eating a good meal. It’s a clear signal that the UK’s burgeoning plant-based eating movement is about to erupt.
We're have been big supporters of allplants since meeting JP last summer with both the founders Alex and JP having spoke at Vevolution events.
“By 2030, most people will be mainly vegan - not hippies or activists, just normal, casual and vegan. The plant-based food scene is growing by the day. From stylish restaurants like Bluebird undergoing vegan make-over’s, to celebrities like Ellie Goulding, Emeli Sande and David Haye rocking plant-power. It isn’t a fad. It’s a social movement.” says founder allplants Founder, Alex Petrides.
"Don't expect this to be the last fundraising round you hear about this year from UK plant-based startups. There is an emerging scene of people moving over from the tech and business world who are developing scalable ethical vegan businesses with the help of investors who want their money to help create a better world."
