About us

We are an award-winning creative food developer taking plant-based food to new heights by creating familiar yet new products.

How we eat and what we eat is changing, and changing fast. Yet, plant-based products are still seen as an “alternative”, which usually means a compromise. We are changing that starting with our ‘Collection 01’, a dairy-free experience consisting of three products: Burrella, Crematta and Superstraccia.

We are a rapidly growing venture-backed food brand that has raised over £6m to date from top tier investors. Currently, we are hiring for London-based roles with ample opportunities to build, learn, and grow. The team is composed of experienced operators with backgrounds in building long lasting F&B concepts as well as high scale tech ventures.
