The event also saw the launch of Clean Kitchen’s Happy Planet boxes. The 100% carbon neutral boxes are the result of Clean Kitchen’s collaboration with My Emissions and Ecologi to offset surplus emissions.
The celebrations come after Verity Bowditch Mikey Pearce announced they have raised £1.4 million in a pre-seed round, with a £7.5m valuation, to expand the disruptive plant-based food chain, following investment from Ex-chairman of Quorn, and fitness influencer Grace Beverley. The restaurant chain was set up less than 12 months ago and they already have 5 sites in London, with plans to open up to 40 new sites across the UK.
Clean Kitchen Club is on a mission to disrupt the plant-based industry as we know it, taking fully sustainable plant-based food and carbon-neutral packaging to the mainstream. They sold over 50,000 burgers in their first year and the company is growing at a rate of 30% month-on-month.
