As Lettices I am on a mission to make plant based, super tasty food, affordable, accessible and easy.
Having been vegetarian all my life and more recently vegan I have always been a foodie and enjoyed experimenting with foods. As a keen baker I had a reputation as a wedding and party cake maker and I was considering this as a career.
When I became vegan I became even more interested in food science and experimenting, taking inspiration from some great plant based recipes online and books – Check out The Gentle Chef book for some great cheese and seitan creations, and The Art of Tofu making with some great ancient tofu books I found along with all the online groups for vegan cheese and seitan these are perfect resources for anyone interested in the vegan food world, once I started to experiment I found the vegan food bug. This led me towards founding a company that produces the sort of exciting plant based foods that people who are cutting down on their dairy and meat consumption or transitioning to a plant based diet or of course vegans will enjoy. Lettices was born! I’ve spent 2 years doing small markets around the UK and gaining market research and now I am retiring my current line as I work on a my new unique product, I can’t wait to share this with you in the near future!
