The dairy includes a unique vegan deli counter with plant based substitutes for fresh meat products, including soysages, burgers, loose tofu and a unique fresh tofu for use as a meat substitute in cooking – all produced on site using our unique Norfolk tofu.
Completely additive free fresh soya milk, along with flavoured varieties are on sale to enjoy in the shop or take away in one of our reusable bottles. During the summer months, enjoy a whippy style soft-serve soya ice cream – on its own, as an ice-cream float or in our special ‘cake and ice-cream’ deal.

Our fresh tofu provides a much improved ingredient for use by caterers, with our unique extra-firm tofu a direct plant replacement for meat in many recipes, as well as a great ingredient in its own right. Deep fried it is especially tasty! Our tofu is already on the menu at several fine establishments in Norwich, including North^ on Fye Bridge Street and Alley Olé in Bridewell Alley. We also supply our soysages to the Plasterers Arms in Norwich, and the Green Britain Centre in Swaffham and our Burgers to Rooftop Gardens in Norwich and the Green Britain Centre , where you can also find our Norfolk beans on sale. Our soysage rolls, pasties and cheesecake are also on the cafe menu at Hillside Animal Sanctuary in West Runton.

Our pop up stall will be open at a number of events during 2018:
- April 18th – Sustainable Food market in The Enterprise Centre, UEA 10am – 4pm
- July 29th – Norwich Vegans summer market in the Forum, Norwich 10am – 4pm
- Dec 2nd – Norwich Vegans Christmas market, Open, Norwich 10am – 4pm
Having finally accepted that we can’t make everything, open six days a week and run workshops – all from the same small space, we are in the process of expanding. A new off-site production base is being built to complement the shop, taking pressure off the space and helping us to cope with our growing wholesale demand. We have now also bought additional premises, close to our Pottergate shop
Our new production space will be ready by spring 2018, and our additional premises ready later in the year. We will continue in our Pottergate shop, but our additional premises will mean we can provide indoor seating on two floors – and hot food! They also provide a great space to finally launch our long planned workshops late in 2018 or early 2019. These will show how quick and easy it is to make your own soya milk @ home. We’ll be adding workshops on making tofu at home and cooking with tofu as the programme expands.
Lasting just over 2 hours, our workshops are a fun and practical way to a dairy alternative. Costs will include all materials and use of equipment – just bring yourself, curiosity and enthusiasm – take home a litre of soya milk and a free set of ingredients for your next batch
