Peas are one of the most sustainable sources of protein on the planet. They require little water and almost no fertiliser to grow as they fix nitrogen back into the soil.

To source our peas, we work exclusively with farmers in the East of England meaning we keep our production local and further reduce our impact on the environment!

And did we mention everything's 100% VEGAN? Well, I guess we just did. Herbivore high five!

You’re on the go, not your food

Do you know how far your food travels? We did some research on where other snacks come from and we found some pretty amazing results. From the most common place they are grown to our base in London, here’s who clocks up the most miles:

Is your protein a waste of space?

Peas are a great source of protein, but did you know how efficient they are? With massively high yields they require the least amount of farmland when compared to the other main sources of protein. Thats 48x less land than beef!

A breath of fresh air

Food production is responsible for 1/4 of all Green House Gas (GHG) emissions- meaning what you put on your plate really matters. Of all protein sources, the humble pea emits the lowest levels of GHGs- you can barely see the cloud it produces!
