Food Adventures has developed a range of premium prepared and multi award- winning vegan meals

WINNER: Food Adventures

Food Adventures, a Cork-based company is at the cutting edge of vegan food development in both the retail and food service sectors in Ireland and the United Kingdom. The company owns and operates a 15,000sq ft production kitchen in Cork in Ireland.

The kitchen is BRC accredited, and Food Adventures’ team of skilled and well-travelled chefs have developed some of the most modern, contemporary, and tasty meals to hit the high street in years.

With consumer trends ever changing, people travelling more and experiencing new foods, the team at Food Adventures have developed a range of premium prepared and multi award- winning vegan meals. These include snackpots, ready meals and soups.

The company’s kitchen as a point of principle cooks in small batches; operating as a kitchen, not a food factory! The kitchen is also verified under the Origin Green programme to support sustainability, and its vegan products are certified by the Vegan Society with a large percentage of the range also gluten-free.

Food Adventures’ meals are not based around fake meats; the company uses natural ingredients alongside its skills and experience, to give the Irish shopper access to some on the best premium readymade meals on the market.
