Nutty about plant-based and recyclable film

Met Foods, the award-winning plant based, dairy-free people are an AA BRC allergen free facility, with two separate factories producing a range of gut-friendly coconut and almond based yoghurts and spreads for food service.

A family-owned British business, Met Foods is passionate about creating dairy-free products that prove dairy-free doesn’t have to be bland or boring. Made with the finest ingredients sourced from ethical suppliers to create free-from products that not only taste good but are good for you too.

The company has been revolutionising plant-based products since 2011; launching the UK’s first ever coconut milk yoghurt to market followed by the UK and Europe’s first almond milk yoghurt, giving consumers a healthy and delicious product that wasn’t soy or dairy based.

Not only are its products a tasty relief for those who are lactose intolerant (approx. 15% of the UK population) but also caters to the ever-growing vegan community satisfying the appetite for dairy free plant-based products that can be enjoyed every day.

Since the COVID pandemic 1 in 4 Brits have reduced the amount of animal products they are consuming. Veganuary had a record 500,000 people sign up in 2021 which is up 100,000 on the previous year and double the number from 2019. In the last 12 months the number of vegans has increased by 445,000 people (40%). It is predicted that by 2025 vegans and vegetarians will make up 25% of the British population.

When Met Foods wanted to make its packaging more environmentally-friendly, it worked closely with National Flexible to launch recyclable yoghurt alternatives for Nush and COYO Organics.

“We are really pleased with the packaging; not only does it look bright and eye catching it is recyclable. Sustainability is important to us and our customers, we want to ensure our products are easily recyclable and as kind to the planet as possible,” the company said. “National Flexible helped us make this as easy as possible for our customers wanting to reduce their packaging waste.”
