Tortilla Vegetarian

Tortilla has always looked out for their vegetarian customers by providing a menu that is easily customisable but in recent months they have joined the Vegetarian Society – the only legally licensed vegetarian trademark registered globally.

If you don’t know who Tortilla are yet, here is a quick overview:

Tortilla started on 2007 after the owners saw a gap in the market for good burritos and tacos. More than just burrito producers, Tortilla take special care to ensure that they operate sustainably. They use grass fed beef and higher welfare chicken and pork, minimise ‘food miles’ by purchasing most of their ingredients from within the UK, prioritising organic food and providing recycling in their restaurants.

Tortilla work hard to keep the customer first by offering healthier options like the lower carb naked burrito and providing nutritional information for their meals so that customers can make informed decisions.

By the time you add free guacamole for vegetarian diners to their list of attributes, it makes it hard to not want to at least give them a try.

RCC NEW PACKS (1)

The Raw Chocolate Company has given their Raw Chocolate Snacks a bit of a face lift. Far from just a cosmetic upgrade, the new packaging is also more sustainable AND user friendly!

The new the free standing, zip-loc bag maintains the integrity of the product better than previous packaging. More importantly, the fully printed pouch means that the Raw Chocolate Company have been able to eliminate the need for paper stickers which  prevents 1300 kg of paper going to landfill per year. The new packaging also results in a lighter overall weight of the package  which further reduces CO2 emissions from production and transport. The plastic used for the pouch is also recyclable at household recycling centres throughout the UK.

This is fantastic news for The Raw Chocolate Company, its customers and the environment. Kris McGowan, Marketing Manager says: “This initial launch shows the direction we are going in this year and how we attack every problem – a multi-faceted win-win-win solution. Our Raw Chocolate Bars and Make Your Own range will also get the same treatment in coming months – a smarter look and feel coupled with lower environmental impact and better preservation of the product. We couldn’t be more proud and happy, we’ve been working on this for a long time.”

The new packaging can currently be seen on 125g bags of:

RAW CHOCOLATE MULBERRIES
RAW CHOCOLATE GOJI BERRIES
RAW CHOCOLATE RAISINS
RAW CHOCOLATE SWEET APRICOT KERNELS
