Orriss & Son gets green light from The Vegan Society
Orriss & Son, the newly launched range of small batch fermented chilli sauces in the UK, has achieved official accreditation from The Vegan Society.
The three highly versatile, gluten free ambient condiments (Even Flow, My Wave and Fresh Tendrils) created by chef David Underwood, have passed the stringent assessment to join the growing number of The Vegan Society approved products. Orriss & Son is now entitled to use the official and globally recognised Vegan Trademark which is sought out by over 90% of vegans and vegetarians.
The response to the sauces has reportedly been positive, with the brand now enjoying listings in a number of specialist independent retailers, delis and farm shops, in addition to attracting a growing number of customers via its presence on Delishops and Etsy, as well as the brand’s own e-commerce website.
Commenting on The Vegan Society accreditation, founder David Underwood said, “Our sauces were developed in part to cater for the growing interest in plant-based foods and free-from foods, two of the fastest growing areas of the food industry. According to The Vegan Society, one in five Brits has cut down on their meat consumption during the pandemic and 15% have reduced their dairy or egg intake during lockdown. The Orriss & Son range is also ideally placed to capitalise on a number of additional consumer trends beyond veganism, including the continued interest in ‘healthy’ products, the focus on authentic & original foods with a proven provenance and the strong demand for items which represent a go-to store cupboard essential, capable of elevating a broad range of dishes.”
Orriss & Son launched with a strong ethical proposition, not only in relation to the vegan friendly production but also due to the brand’s commitment to recyclable packaging and paying it forward, with a portion of proceeds from the sale of each bottle donated to www.wateraid.org.
