Lupin is a native European legume that represents a significant alternative to soya beans - they have a really high protein content (up to 44%) and contain all the ten essential amino acids. This makes them...
one of the world's richest natural sources of combined fibre & protein
That's right! A new BFF to those looking for a new source of protein for their plant based meals and snacks or anyone really.
Europe depends on soya bean imports for 70% of its plant requirements & it's time for a change!
Lupins fix nitrogen to the soil, which helps create a better environment for growth and survival of other plants (making it a great candidate for crop rotation)
It promotes Regenerative Agriculture: not only by giving back to the soil, but also providing new sources of income to farmers
Has a very low carbon footprint when compared with other protein sources
Let's be honest, healthy eating can be pretty exhausting. Between the overload of information, the revolving door of diets and the lack of clarity on what actually works, it's easy to be put off.
We've been there. So we made it our purpose to normalise access to healthier foods by creating high quality products that are full of natural flavour, convenient and easy to understand.
Our journey started with lupin beans... because we grew up eating them, and because it is the best plant protein we could find. That part was simple, finding locally sourced lupin beans less so! But we’re not the kind to give up easily. We found a worldclass lupin researcher (we're not kidding...) and a small producer of lupin beans, and got to work, knowing that it would be tough to build that value chain, but it was the right thing to do.
We know we can't create a revolution alone, so we strive to build lasting relationships with our customers, our partners and our suppliers. And because we want to do things right by everybody, we’re committed to be a purposeful business and a B Corporation (pending). We are ambitious but simple and down to earth. At the core, we are authentically human.
Everyday snacks. For good.
