New stretch target

We would love a nut butter machine in our new kitchen! We would also love to purchase the equipment to make our own plant milks. The leftovers from these processes could then be used to make delicious treats and toppings for our breakfast range.

We are always looking at ways to improve how we do things and any extra pledges would mean we could improve our sustainability. Our ultimate goal is to have a completely zero-waste kitchen.

We have a great idea for a new product range and any extra funding means we could develop that further and bring it to market so our customers had even more plant-based options to choose from!


Our Planet Needs Us!

Every year in the UK we waste 9,500,000 tonnes of food. Every year our oceans are filled with 8,000,000 tonnes of plastic. The meat and dairy industry is unsustainable in it's current form. Our Planet is in crisis and the way we consume has to change.

Glow Foods is on a mission to stop plastic pollution and food waste, whilst providing delicious plant-based, dairy free food - one meal at a time!

What is Glow Foods?

We provide 100% plant-based convenience food (currently breakfast jars, salad jars and energy balls) from our zero-waste kitchen and deliver it to your door on a one-off or subscription basis.

There are no refined sugars or dairy in our products and all our packaging is either biodegradable or recyclable - with absolutely no plastic! 

All of our breakfast and lunch products are delivered in glass jars. Customers can return these to us for reuse and customers who return five or more jars receive 5% off their next order.

Why are we crowdfunding?

We need your help! We’re aiming to raise £1,000 initially, which will help us to finish kitting out our commercial kitchen space so that we can expand our current operation, develop our product range, and provide more of our products to our brilliant customers. 

We would love our own zero-waste space for the Glow Foodies to create more flavour combos and more product ranges, as well as make a lot of our own ingredients. We're especially excited about making our own plant milks and nut butters and using the residual ingredients to create delicious toppings for our breakfast range. 

Our plan is for everyone to embrace plant-based, sustainable food and show that food on the go doesn't need to be bland or full of nasties!

Who are we?

We're Millie & Nat - two friends with a mutual desire to do our bit for the planet and eat better at the same time, both for us and our families. This mutual desire turned us into business partners and Glow Foods was born! ⁣

We’re fierce about women supporting women and we’re so enthusiastic about our business that we live and breathe it. We’re both very strong minded and pretty full of personality too (take a look at our Facebook page and you may smile at our crowdfunding 'bloopers' video). We laugh a lot, but we also take our business very seriously. We have over 40 years' corporate business experience between us, have won multiple business awards in different roles, we've juggled work and life with young families, and we're hands on, hard-working, and determined to make Glow Foods a success.  In just a few short months, we've secured retail stockists for our products as well as a loyal local customer base.  This is just the beginning - Glow Foods is growing.  We know where we're going, and with your help at this start-up stage, we can achieve this.  Be a part of this success.  Pledge today.

                                

The more money you pledge, the more plastic we can stop from entering our oceans and the more food waste we can prevent! We'd love you to discover just how great our products are and so we’ve got some fantastic rewards available for people making a pledge. Check out our Rewards section for more information!

Thank you!
