Every year we say that Veganuary can't possibly get any bigger, and every year we're proved wrong. Veganuary 2022 was no exception. As soon as we returned to work after Christmas we were inundated with news of exciting releases, and it's been so nice to have the restaurants back this year, all trying to outdo each other with innovative new dishes. We certainly approve of a bit of healthy competition when it means we benefit from having to eat out at least once a week – all in the name of research, of course! But sometimes when you've been overindulging in all the exciting new products, it's nice to revert to a simple recipe that's packed with fresh veggies and flavour, but doesn't require much effort. That's exactly what one-pots are…

what’s cooking

Earth & Wheat launch new vegan ‘wonky’ broken biscuit box Sustainable baked goods delivery firm Earth & Wheat has launched a vegan sweet and savoury ‘wonky’ broken biscuit box. The green tech firm was set up by university student James Eid with the launch of the UK’s first ‘wonky bread’ box online subscription service back in March. Earth & Wheat’s mission is to reduce food waste at the ‘point of production’ and ‘rescue’ baked goods, which would otherwise have been binned due to their odd size or wonky appearance. Now the brand has added to its product range with the launch of its 1.8kg vegan broken biscuit box, which contain a variety of vegan sweet and savoury partly broken and whole biscuits. This includes cookies, gem, gingerbread, crackers and water biscuits. “Our…

eating out with… this vegan city

Emma and Laura from bring us news of plant-based eating options across the UK HUNTER GATHERER COFFEE Location: 249 Albert Road, Southsea PO4 0JR Website: Cuisine: World Service: Counter/table Back in 2016, Portsmouth saw the birth of two Hunters, not usually something to write about in a vegan magazine. However, luckily for us, one was Hunter Gatherer Coffee, and the other was owner Brian’s son – Hunter. Initially an omnivore café, but with mostly vegan/veggie staff, Brian was swiftly inspired to change things up. This might not sound like a big deal in today’s world, but 5 years ago in Portsmouth, it was a bit of a gamble. One that paid off. A 100% reduction in meat saw an instant 20% increase in turnover. Today, it’s fully plant-based and business is booming. The interesting thing is…

behind the scenes at viva!

Only vegan farming can make agriculture truly sustainable On 5 January 2022 we launched Viva! Farming, our new venture to educate, advocate and promote the benefits of transitioning to plant-based agriculture; to save the planet, our health and animals. At COP26, leaders and representatives from about 200 countries met to discuss plans to cut emissions by 2030 and try and “keep 1.5°C alive”. New commitments were made to change agricultural policies to become more sustainable and less polluting, and to invest in the science needed for sustainable agriculture. Viva! believes that only vegan farming can make agriculture truly sustainable. To celebrate the launch, we held a panel discussion with some of Britain's top sustainable agriculture experts at the Oxford Farming Conference in January.
