Part Two as Mustard Foods offers the inside information on all the hottest trends in United Kingdom.

3. Meat alternatives and the trend away
Mustard Food has embraced meat free Mondays. Livestock production is a major contributor to carbon emissions as meat production accounts for an estimated 18% of global greenhouse emissions and 70% of the world’s water.

Oscar winning actor Leonardo DiCaprio recently announced he has invested in ‘Beyond Meat’, a Los Angeles-based producer of plant-based meat.

Ethical. Healthier. Sustainable.

4. Request for all things Vegan
Vegan is a growing trend around the world and has seen a 90% increase in Google searches. Veguanary – launched in 2014 – encourages people to go meat free for January with 100,000 expected to participate in 2018 – up from 23,000 in 2016.

In today’s markets customers prefer to have vegan rather than just vegetarian offerings. One of many ways Mustard Foods accommodated and reacted to the changing need was to have vegan Thai pastes made in Thailand – specifically for us – that allow our customers the flexibility to offer vegan curries as well as those with the traditional meat.

5. Food waste
At Mustard Foods we work with a company called Refood, who handle all our food waste, reusing it to make green energy thanks to a unique end-to-end solution.

All of our ingredients are pre-prepped which means we use everything that is delivered and our Good Business Journey, which is measurable, makes us accountable to our targets – our food waste target is 3% of total food produced. This is currently about 5 tonnes per day of which at least 1% is from staff food. Our employees are fed onsite in our canteen and we serve four meals over a 24-hour period with fruit available at all times.
