Through her business Wildly Tasty, Louisa Mitchell makes and sells plant-based meals for children. Her pasta sauces, curries and tagines are homemade using high-quality vegetables, beans, chickpeas and lentils. They’re then frozen and couriered as a set of eight meals, which customers can keep in the freezer, ready to heat up in a few minutes.
Customers can choose their own selection of plant-based ready meals and buy a one-off box or sign up for a weekly or monthly subscription. The meals are sold online in recyclable, compostable or biodegradable packaging. “I make sure each Wildly Tasty recipe is packed with at least four veggies and I work with a nutritionist to ensure the recipes are nutritionally balanced. And everything is freshly made, even down to our curry paste,” says Louisa (pictured above in the green apron with her employee Tanya, husband David and friend Jamie at VegFest).
