Independent businesses join forces to launch Bristol Vegan Meal Box

By martin booth, Monday Jun 1, 2020

With his business model disappearing almost overnight, one street food trader has been volunteering for a number of Bristol charities during the coronavirus pandemic.

Ollie Greenhalgh of RaviOllie, who makes homemade ravioli from a kitchen in Fishponds, has now launched the Bristol Vegan Meal Box in collaboration with other independent food and drink businesses across the city.

Ollie said: “We’ve set out with the aim of bringing together some of Bristol’s most delicious independent vegan brands that have been affected by Covid-19 into one mouth-watering meal box for two people.”

All profits from the box, which costs £40, are donated to the Square Food Foundation in Knowle West, who are currently cooking meals for vulnerable communities.

The box contains a vegan antipasti for two from Better Food, a vegan wild mushroom ravioli main course for two from RaviOllie with a sunflower seed pesto from Flip deli of North Street, two vegan brownies from Radek’s Chocolates of Fishponds and two Wiper & True Kaleidoscope beers from St Werburgh’s.

Ollie added: “Bristol has some of the best vegan brands in the country and some of these small businesses have been devastatingly effected by the Covid-19 outbreak.

“We have brought this box together in a collaboration to help support local small businesses, support an absolutely fantastic cause and give customers a delicious high quality vegan meal for them to enjoy at home.”
