Daring Foods Signs First Distribution Deal

by | January 14, 2019

The Glasgow-based start-up company, Daring Foods has signed a distribution deal with Lomond Fine Foods. This will see the plant-based food company’s range reach three hundred locations in the first quarter of 2019, and could be supplying the food service industry at 1,000 locations by the end of 2019.

Daring Foods Signs First Distribution Deal

Ross Mackay of the company thinks they are on track to being one of the fastest growing in the sector, also saying they are close to securing an agreement with a major supermarket chain. Mackay says that he is excited to announce the partnership with Lomond foods and that it’s the first step for them to become a significant force in the plant-based foods market.

Daring Foods have a range of plant-based, palm-oil free, non-GMO, hormone and antibiotic free foods such as the Moo-Free Burger, Moo-Less Meatballs, Cluck-Free Fried Burger, Fishy-Free Fingers, Moo-Less Mince, Cluck-Free Nuggets and Cluck-Free Strips. The meat alternatives are made from wheat protein, potato protein, and spices. Mackay says the plant-based food market is there for the taking, as none of the current offerings on the market even come close to the taste of meat. He also says that as society shifts to a more plant-based diet, the company is in a good spot to offer delicious, nutritious and sustainable foods.

Daring Foods was founded by Ross Mackay and former Parisian banker Eliott Kessas. In anticipation of the high demand for their products, the pair has secured production facilities in the Netherlands, and have ‘beefed’ up production of their plant-based meat alternatives.

Lomond Foods are a Glasgow based distribution company who deliver chilled and frozen goods all over Scotland. As a Scottish company, they take great pride in sourcing much of their range from local Scottish producers.

The plant-based food market seems to be growing at an incredible rate, and I can’t wait to see what happens this year.
