Tomorrow, United Kingdom-based delivery platform Deliveroo will offer the Plant Based Bucket—a vegan “chicken and chips” meal that is packaged in edible buckets. The meal was created by vegan brand Alpro in honor of its own holiday Plant Power Day and features mushroom nuggets, sweet potato fries (“chips”), and a creamy garlic dip. The bucket is made from a combination of seeds (such as fennel, sesame, nigella, and pumpkin), nuts, and spices, and is meant to be consumed in conjunction (or after) the meal. “We’ve always said that the future of food is plant-based, because this way of eating is good for people and good for the planet—and now, thanks to Alpro, plant-based could be the future for takeaways, too,” Stephanie Balsom-Eynon, head of Plant Power at Alpro, said. “For us, it’s even more exciting to bring this ‘world first’ to life on Plant Power Day, because we created this day to encourage people to add more plants to their plates and see how tasty and exciting easy it can be. Hopefully, in launching [the] Plant Based Bucket, we will inspire even the most carnivorous Deliveroo customers to give plant-based eating a try—on Plant Power Day, and beyond.”
