Hello, I'm Tom and I run The Vegan Food Wrap Company, a part of The Beeswax Wrap Company. The Vegan side of the business came about because of customers like you who wanted a Vegan alternative to Beeswax Wraps. My wife Fran and her business partner Carly started The Beeswax Wrap Company in 2017, and they quickly became aware of key customers who were being left behind in their bid to support people on their plastic free journey. After a great deal of research and development the Vegan Food Wrap Company was born!
Our customers are enthusiastic and committed Vegans, people who have made a choice to follow a vegan lifestyle. Be that for dietary needs or concerns around animal cruelty and meat production. But they are also concerned with the impact that single use plastics are having on our environment and the wildlife that inhabit it.
At The Vegan Food Wraps Company we are committed to supporting UK businesses and as much as possible source ingredients locally, we are enthusiastic outdoor people too and support local and national environmental charities, which we will talk about throughout the year in our blog and on our social media channels. We'd love to hear about opportunities to help and support things that are important to you, so please get in touch if you have a local environmental issue that is close to your heart. Contact us if you'd like to get in touch.
We now employ 10 people in our workshop and hand make all of our wraps here in Nailsworth, in the heart of The Cotswolds. We use 100% vegan wax which you can read about here. A wax made in the UK from 100% non-GMO sustainably sourced plants.
Having a busy household - two children (Lola 13 & Poppy 10), 1 sister in law (Mads 29) 2 Cats (Olive & Sundance) and 1 Dog (Butch) meant that the move into plastic free living was a challenge. It involved making decisions weekly about how and more importantly where we shopped. It also meant that we needed the ability to pack up lunches, pick up our grains, pulses and pastas from loose shops and cover our leftovers without using cling film. We now find myriad uses for our Vegan Food Wraps.
They're genuinely amazing and, if you look after them, will last you well over a year. They also make great presents, they're super thoughtful and will allow the recipient to make those little steps to a plastic free eco household. You can have a look at our wraps here.
