Gone are the days where hacking an iceberg into bits and throwing in some tomatoes and cucumber makes an exciting salad.

Florette has upped the salad game with their fresh selection of salad mixes guaranteed to make even the most reticent green-eater reach for the dressing.

Boasting salad blends containing crisp greens such as sweet butterhead, vibrant radicchio and peppery wild rocket, Florette offers ready-mixed, vibrant salad combinations for your healthy enjoyment.

Full Steam Pictures had the pleasure of creating some new recipe and serving suggestions, along with shooting some delicious images that went on to be used on Florette’s salad packets, their website and social media pages.

Florette is a farmer-owned company that grows over 11,000 tonnes of leaves and feeds 7.6 million families every year. They believe in the quality and freshness of their salads, and ‘go the extra mile to ensure that each leaf is grown in just the right amount of sunlight’.

Full Steam Pictures was lucky enough to get a first look at this scrumptious pudding when we took the photographs, and we are hoping to have a taste very soon!

Supermarkets and the Vegan Movement

Over the past week, we have seen more supermarkets introducing vegan products than ever before.

Aldi just added plant-based ‘chicken’ burgers, sausage rolls, no beef burgers and superfood burgers to their product range. These products are made from quinoa, couscous, pumpkin seeds, butternut squash, red pepper and sweet potato.

Morrisons brought out vegan tuna, called TUNO, which is made using soya protein and natural flavourings, and apparently has a flaky texture, much like the real thing. It also has a high protein count and low calories.

Sainsbury’s Jackfruit Quarter-Pounder was just named the ‘Best Vegan Supermarket Burger’, and in an article today, the supermarket giant predicted that 25% of Brits will be vegan or veggie by 2025.

So why are vegan alternatives proving to be so popular that supermarkets are falling over themselves to introduce supporting food products?

According to the Vegan Society, “Demand for meat-free food increased by 987% in 2017, and going vegan was predicted to be the biggest food trend in 2018”.

Much of this increasingly popular trend seems to be a result of the combined factors of increased awareness of treatment of animals, health concerns, environmental impacts, celebrity influence, and ready availability.

Many of our clients are bringing out vegan options, and all of the photographs used in this post are celebrating their diversity.
