New year, new-look - and taste - meal pots!


Our pioneering chilled one-pot meals have new and improved recipes and eye-catching packaging.

Christina Baskerville, our Queen of Beans, says:  “We pioneered the concept of a complete meal in a pot in 2008, taking our inspiration from rustic cuisine from around the world and the beans and pulses typical of the region.

“This original range has certainly stood the test of time with very few changes being made. However, as people increasingly have a greater understanding of the health benefits of pulses and demand more plant based foods we felt that it was the right time to tweak a few recipes and simplify the range to appeal to a broader audience, including those following a vegan or vegetarian diet or for those just looking for a more convenient way to enjoy more veg and pulses.”

The chilled meals are prepared in our Somerset production kitchen. Slowly cooked in small batches, chunky veg and nutritious pulses are infused with fresh herbs and spices. All the ingredients are 100% natural and all recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free.

The packaging has also been refreshed with new foodie illustrations and product descriptors focusing on the hero ingredients. Serving suggestions are given.

The meals continue to be packed in a microwaveable and recyclable or reusable plastic pot. The sleeve is made from sustainable card and fully recyclable.

We’d love to hear what our customers think of the new taste and new look meals.
