How To Pack The Perfect Plant Based Picnic

Belated National Picnic Week. To celebrate the occasion, we’ve put together our favourite plant-based picnic products. So go on down to your local park, or your garden, plant-based picnic in hand, and don’t forget your suncream (or an umbrella).

After you’ve selected all your tasty fresh fruit and vegetables, including all the best seasonal products, it's time to choose some delicious ‘picky bits’, snacks and dips. If you need help with locating the products below, check out our app, ‘Food Forage’. Food Forage is an app that showcases plant-based products.
