allplants Named ‘Most Sustainable Food Brand’ 2022 by Marie Claire
Have you wondered what the UK’s ‘Most Sustainable Food Brand’ looks like? Well, look no further because it looks a whole lot like us.
What is the UK’s most sustainable food brand?
According to Marie Claire’s Sustainability Awards, 2022, the UK’s top food brand is a group of plant-based chefs and pioneers based in North London – That’s us, by the way.
What did Maie Claire have to say about allplants?
‘Founded as a response to the fact that, for the future health of our planet, humans must dramatically reduce their reliance on animal products, allplants is on a mission to inspire everyone to eat greener.
As one of the earliest brands to become a B Corp back in 2018, allplants recently improved its accreditation from “Good” to “Outstanding”, putting the brand in the top 0.1% of all UK-based food companies for sustainability.
Between 2016 and 2021, it also served 4 million plant-based meals – saving 15,000 tonnes of CO2 (the equivalent of preventing 180 million plastic bottles being made), 10 billion litres of water, and 18,000 acres of land (equivalent to 10,000 football pitches), and is committed to reducing food waste, too.
“This is an amazing example of a brand and business making sustainability a totally mainstream product,” says Sustainability Awards judge and founder of Good Business, Giles Gibbons.’
Who was on the panel?
The Sustainability Awards judging panel was made of over 50 industry experts including:
- Andrea Thompson – Editor-in-Chief, Marie Claire UK
- Ally Head – Health, Sustainability & Relationships Editor, Marie Claire UK
- Ingrid Newkirk – Founder, PETA
- Bianca Foley – Sustainable Content Creator, Writer and Podcast Co-Host of Sustainably Influenced
- Dave Coleman – Managing Director, The Carbon Literacy Project
Does this make two wins in a row for allplants?
Yes, it does. In case you missed last year’s awards, we were awarded 'Best Vegan Brand' in Marie Claire UK’s first-ever Sustainability Awards.
"allplants takes the perceived dedication and effort out of switching to a plant-based diet by offering nutritionally balanced, healthy, chef-made vegan meals that can be frozen and heated up at your convenience.
Oh, and it’s also a certified B Corp – meaning the brand not only upholds the highest environmental standards, but the highest ethical and social ones, too."
