Plant-based goodness

The protein choices we make impact both our health and the climate. We are shifting to more plant-based proteins with a view to finding more sustainable options and giving our customers more to choose from.

More plant-based options – less climate impact

There is no doubt about it. Our customers are looking for more plant-based food options, so we’re striving to give them more choice. By adding options that are delicious, nutritious and responsibly produced to our packaged food offer, restaurants and bistros, we can also have a positive impact on the climate.
