Our Story

The Plantifull Food Co. has been trading since March 2018 and was founded by husband and wife team, Adam and Becca Courtenay.

After watching a the documentary Forks Over Knives on Netlfix one evening, they were so captivated by the message and presented benefits of a wholly plant-based diet, that they transitioned fully into a plant-based diet the next morning.

 

Prior to this, neither had even considered following this lifestyle, and hadn't even met anybody who was vegan before! It was on this new journey that they quickly realised what a challenge coooking with only plants could be. During a holiday to Australia later that year, where there were so many food options for vegans, Adam and Becca decided to take things into their own hands, and created The Plantifull Food Co. shortly afterwards.

 

Our Mission

 

It is our mission to make delicious plant-based eating easily accessible to as many people as possible. We hope to show the world that food can be nutritious and delicious, not despite it being made wiht plants, but becuase of it.
