Rooted Plant-Based Food
Rooted Plant-Based Food
Real food made with real ingredients.
After months of development, passion and a deep desire to contribute to environmental sustainability, Ashleigh and Mathew created Rooted – A plant-based food producer of Gluten-free, Sugar-free, Soy-free, Cruelty-free Vegan food. In other words – real food made with real ingredients.
From the very beginnings of Rooted, ethicalness, accessibility and non-alienating values were going to be key to their customer service and product philosophy as well as to the work environment within Rooted. Their goal of becoming a major contributor in the sustainable food industry in South Africa is already on course.
Accessible Plant-based Living
“We feel strongly that plant-based living should feel abundant and be accessible to anyone interested in trying it” mentions Ashleigh. “We feel that for many people, plant-based living can, at times, seem like an exclusive and almost privileged lifestyle.”
Ashleigh and Mathew, both with extensive knowledge and backgrounds in the food and service industries, want to empower anyone to enjoy this kind of lifestyle – this includes vegan-curious people, people simply wanting a meat-free Monday and people who, for health reasons, simply need to cut back on their meat consumption, but maintain a high level of nutrition.
What sets them apart
“Plant-based food is often expensive; we aim to keep our price point as accessible to all people as possible” states Mathew, “Plant-based alternatives sometimes mimic meat, but don’t necessarily contain a good level of nutrition or flavor. We believe it’s the amazing flavour of our products that make a difference.”
“There is a growing trend towards plant-based, sustainable living” says Ashleigh, “We are a cruelty-free brand that aims to make plant-based living accessible and more appealing to a greater portion of our population, and feel strongly that a balance can be struck between achieving amazing flavour, and utilising real ingredients.“
