Another week of astounding innovation on our Discovery board, with exciting products sourced from every corner of the globe. Whether you want to maintain your youthful appearance with collagen-infused snacks, or grab some ready-to-drink organic boba tea, we’ve got it all, and you’ve been busy voting for your top three:

1. GIGI Gelato | Rotterdam, Netherlands

The Netherlands are world-leading in the plant-based revolution, so it’s no surprise that Dutch company GIGI Gelato is the winner this week. It’s 100% plant-based gelato sticks are made entirely from fruit and vegetables but are still creamy and delicious despite being low in calories. They’re also high in fibre, which is so important for gut health, and a great way to encourage kids (or trick them, in our house) to eat more of the healthy stuff. Plant-based ice cream is a booming scene, first kicked off by Halo Top in the US, but Europe is catching up and its market was valued at €135M in 2019 and predicted to grow at 12.6% CAGR 2019-2024. The concept of ‘permissible indulgence’ is a big driver, as consumers seek tasty treats which still fit within their dietary and health requirements.

2. One Planet Pizza | Norwich, UK

UK-based One Planet Pizza is an ethical, family-run business which created the UK’s first frozen plant-based pizza in 2016, having identified a market opportunity. After starting the UK’s first ever crowdfunding campaign for a vegan company, just a couple of years later the brand now has a dedicated community of investors, a full range of pizzas, and is producing over 500 units every day, in its mission to make delicious, vegan pizzas accessible to everyone. The global pizza market reached $154.8Bn in 2019, because consumers really love pizza (what’s not to love?!), and it’s absolutely ripe for disruption with great ingredients, healthier attributes and clean labelling, particularly within the plant-based arena.

We wrote about plant-based milk in our Monday newsletter because it’s a hot topic, as the global market is estimated to reach $21.52Bn in 2024. But not all milk alternatives are created equal, and plenty contain emulsifiers, thickeners and preservatives that some of us may prefer to avoid. LA-based GOODMYLKCO’s founder, Brooke Rewa, saw an opportunity and decided to create her own milk alternatives. She has even developed a proprietary flash-blast freezing technique which allows her to scale up production of her nutritious, flavourful products, without compromising their integrity, in order to bring them to the masses. Whether you prefer almond, oat or hemp milk, you can be sure that the quality is top notch, the label is clean, and it contains zero processed sugar.
