Pollen + Grace launches new vegan food-to-go options

Designed in collaboration with in-house Naturopath Anastasia
Pollen + Grace has launched a new collection for Autumn/Winter with increased vegan choice, available in 50 stores including Planet Organic, As Nature Intended, Simply Fresh, and Wholefoods from next month.
To fulfil growing consumer demand for vegan options, the range adds four new vegan dishes to its healthy portfolio, making the entire Pollen + Grace collection almost 90% vegan. This includes both new ‘Hot Pots’ including a Turmeric + Butternut Daal Pot and Kimchi + MisoNoodle Pot, presented in a 350g plastic pot. All packaging is air tight to seal in freshness.
Adding to the ‘Lunch Box’ selection, the Immunity Box is available as a vegan option or servedwith chicken, available in a 350-380g plastic box. The Raw Cacao and Raspberry Porridge Pot which is dairy free joins the line-up of ‘Breakfast Pots’, served hot orcold to meet consumers demand for more hot options during the colder seasons. Breakfast Pots are served in a 190-230g plastic pot.
All vegan boxes have an increased shelf life of 5 days + production, and meat/fish boxes 3 days + production. Pollen + Grace prides itself in using natural preservatives such as natural essences and superfoods to prolong shelf life. Designed in collaboration with in-house Naturopath Anastasia, the new collection offers balanced meal options for consumers. Like existing lines, all products are free from gluten, wheat, dairy and refined sugars.
Stephanie Johnson, Co-Founder Pollen + Grace says: ‘‘We wanted to launch a collection that added new flavours and colour for Autumn/Winter with extra health benefits for the colder season. The new Hot Pots, which take inspiration from different flavours around the world, fill a gap in the existing market, for competitively priced healthy products on-the-go. We’ve always been ahead of the curve with our vegan offering, but with increased consumer demand, the collection adds even more variety, and has been designed to last longer. Whether you have intolerances or simply want to eat exciting, well-balanced food that is accessible, the new collection offers something for everyone’’.
Founded in March 2015 by Stephanie Johnson & Kristina Komlosiova with the ambition of creating delicious healthy food-to-go free from gluten, wheat, dairy + refined sugars. Since then the brand has gone from strength to strength. Starting in a home kitchen as a lunch delivery service, their collection of 16 products can now be found in premium retailers, health specialist stores and boutique fitness studios across London. With a focus on using only 100% natural, wholesome ingredients, each product is nutritionally crafted by Stephanie and Kristina alongside their in-house Naturopath Anastasia with the aim of making free-from, healthy options exciting, appealing and accessible to all.
