Concern for the environment, growing awareness of dietary intolerances and the search for healthier options have propelled vegetarian and vegan food choices to the mainstream.

Many consumers have been guided by reports of emissions from the meat and dairy industry being linked to climate change, and as such are making changes to their diets, some becoming ‘flexitarian’ – with others adopting a full-time plant-based diet.

Plant-based diets are also typically healthier than traditional omnivore diets. By increasing vegan options on their menus, caterers can also help provide options for diners looking for reduced calorie dishes when they eat out.

Retailers, foodservice operators and wholesalers are working hard to meet the resulting demand for great tasting, plant-based food. The good news is that we are in an excellent position to help.

Naturally plant-based

As one of the world's leading suppliers of speciality vegetable oils, fats and related products, much of what we make and supply is produced from plants and contains no meat or animal products.

Take our Prep range of high performance frying oils for example, they are all plant-based, vegetarian and naturally vegan.

With many of our products featuring plant-based food ingredients, we can help your company provide plant-based solutions – whether that’s through private label solutions or our branded products.

Dairy free and vegan alternatives

From traditional butter, to creamy mayos and dressings, we have worked hard to develop impactful plant-based and dairy free alternatives which deliver in both cooking applications and flavour and texture without compromise.

With our Lion brand, we have adopted a dairy free, vegan-first new product development approach. Our Lion Vegan Mayo, sauces and dressings replicate authentic flavours, providing a delicious taste experience.

With a long history in butter alternatives, our Whirl products are inspired by traditional dairy butter! With rich buttery flavours and the convenience of a liquid form, our Vegan Whirl product delivers the flavour customers desire whilst offering a dairy free solution which is healthier, more cost effective and convenient.

Whether your company is looking for plant-based food ingredients, private label vegan food solutions or our branded vegan products, we have solutions.
