MATT

Matt, founder of The Hemp Pantry Limited, is embarking on a hemp food revolution. Matt brings a fresh, new look to plant-based food, with innovative, interesting, and exciting ingredients sprinkled with a few honest words.

In his high-end line of work, there is no option but to deliver the same level of excellence to a vegan client or a client with a dairy intolerance, as they do to every other client.

 
Working as private chefs for many years, Matt has become accustomed to catering for the changes in food trends and the wide range of specific dietary requirements. In his high-end line of work, there is no option but to deliver the same level of excellence to a vegan client or a client with a dairy intolerance, as they do to every other client. Food trends come and go, but there has been one food choice which is growing, and that's veganism and the plant-based diet. Over the years, the plant-based diet has opened a whole new world of food for Matt, who recognise that the growing demand for plant-based alternatives to animal products is a clear shift in our culinary world and the only way the increasing population can sustainably feed itself.

Although the demand is clear, Matt, his colleagues and friends working in the hospitality industry all found it difficult to adapt to the dairy alternatives that were available at the supermarket, the majority of these make sacrifices on flavour, can't be used as a direct substitute without changing recipes significantly, and are mostly based on major allergies like nuts and soya. Most alarming, when they looked into the components of these products, Matt discovered that the ingredients can be worse for people's health than the dairy products people wish to avoid, often full of chemical additives, preservatives, E-numbers, emulsifiers, and unsustainable ingredients such as palm oil. Matt feels that some of these alternatives clearly don't help us transition to a healthier lifestyle so thought there had to be another way. And there is - The Hemp Pantry way!

The Vision

 

DEVELOPING A SUSTAINABLE ORGANIC PRODUCT 

During a career development break, Matt decided to find an organic product that was free from all additives, preservatives, and major allergens such as nuts and soya. Matt's solution is VEURRE®, a revolutionary product created, tried and tested by professional chefs.

 

VEURRE® is a dairy-free alternative to butter that works exactly like dairy butter in every recipe. VEURRE® contains no additives or preservatives and is made from certified organic ingredients. Matt took time and care to develop VEURRE®, really perfecting the recipe and testing its uses across the board. VEURRE® is delicious as a spread, perfect for baking and making pastry, and fantastic to cook with!

Matt's vision for The Hemp Pantry is to support and encourage sustainable, plant-based food production, showing that food can be produced with an ingredients list that anyone can understand and that benefits people and the environment now and into the future. Matt is busy devoting his expertise in The Hemp Pantry kitchen, creating exciting and delicious real hemp food products that he is eager to share with you once perfected.
