Root Kitchen gives busy pub and restaurant kitchens an opportunity to serve up a delicious, nutritious and affordable range of plant-based dishes.
Root Kitchen is brought to you by the Brother in Law and Sister in Law combo David & Rishma. Both have worked in the ready meal industry for a combined 16 years. David in Marketing and Rishma as a Product Development Director, developing ready meal ranges for some of the UK’s leading supermarkets including LIDL, Iceland, Morrison’s and ASDA.
The idea for Root Kitchen came in late 2019. Rishma has suffered from fatigue and immunity based health issues for several years and was subsequently diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.), a long-term (chronic), fluctuating, neurological condition that causes symptoms affecting many body systems, more commonly the nervous and immune systems.
After trialling a plant-based diet, Rishma realised there were very few convenient, nutritious and affordable options for people like her, so she took to the kitchen and started creating. The need for all food venues to offer a good range of plant-based meal options is growing and in a period of staff shortages and reduced capacity, a fast serve quality selection is not only commercially wise, but in the case of Root Kitchen, you have the added peace of mind that the production process gives genuine handmade meals with no nasties hidden in the ingredients. However, the real selling points are the range and the taste, with recipes from all over the world as a venue you can offer recipes to work with your other menu items, or with the long storage life and neat packaging, why not invest in in a broad range of items.
Here are a few of the best sellers from the Root KItchen range:
