Big Things are Happening for ‘How on Earth’ Family Run Vegan Business
How on Earth vegan may be a small family business but since starting in September 2017, big things have been happening for them!
After only a few weeks of trading last year, they were contacted by the University of Exeter Guild shop who wanted to expand their lunch offer to include a vegan range. Since then their ‘Plant based meat alternative’ lunches have proved so popular they have started to outsell established brands such as Ginsters.
They are now looking to expand, as their tiny production kitchen based in their home is struggling to keep up with demand for their specialist vegan food. They have just agreed to supply their ‘Plant based meat alternatives’ to the award winning local business ‘Veg in a Box’.
‘Veg in a box” are creating a Vegan ‘meat’ box featuring How on Earth’s: Southern fried ‘chicken’style seitan, plant based smoky bacon rashers and a range of vegan charcuterie. This will all be available from the beginning of May 2018.
They are currently crowdfunding to build a new kitchen you can support them and get rewards here:
Story Behind ‘How On Earth’
They are a family run business, for vegans by vegans. They currently focuses on producing vegan lunch options, exclusively for the University of Exeter Student Guild shop. How on Earth is located on the university campus but is open to the general public.
How On Earth LTD was created by the Howarth family in September 2017. They are a family of three vegans, and one vegetarian (who tried Veganuary). Mum Heidi is at the core of the business, a brilliant vegan cook and an expert seitan maker! Dad Dan is the designer, a freelance illustrator who loves to create. He is responsible for the look of How On Earth, including its packaging and labels. Daughter Chloe is the the founding vegan, whose love of the movement has inspired much of what they do.
