Food giant, Alpro, has revealed its zero waste vegan takeaway, dubbed the Plant-Based Bucket (PBB.)

Offering a ‘plant-based twist on a traditional chicken and chips meal deal’, PBB features vegan chicken nuggets, sweet potato fries, and a garlic dip – served in an edible bucket made from nuts, seeds, and spices.

From March 7, The zero waste takeaway will be available to order on the delivery service Deliveroo in Manchester and London, celebrating the second year of Plant Power Day – a nationwide celebration of vegan food and drink.

‘Deliciously moreish’

Head of Plant Power, Stephanie Balsom-Eynon, said: “The bucket has a crunchy base made using a tasty mix of fennel seeds, nigella seeds, sesame seeds, and pumpkin seeds – meaning it’s sort of like a crispbread.

“It’s deliciously moreish, and really is good enough to eat; especially when paired with the Alpro-based creamy garlic dip.

‘The future of food is plant-based’

Stephanie added: “We’ve always said that the future of food is plant-based because this way of eating is good for people, and good for the planet – and now, thanks to Alpro, plant-based could be the future for takeaways too.”

“It’s even more exciting to bring this ‘world first’ to life on Plant Power Day because we created this day to encourage people to add more plants to their plates and see how tasty and exciting it can be.

“Hopefully, in launching PBB, we will inspire even the most carnivorous Deliveroo customers to give plant-based eating a try, on Plant Power Day and beyond.”
