LINDA MCCARTNEY'S ON TOUR September 23, 2016 10:05
It’s that time of the year again when mums and dads wave goodbye to their kids and pack the car full of bags for their very first term at university. Freshers’ Week, to those in the know, is a period where our finest young brains settle into life on campus, make new friends and get their first taste of uni life. We’re going to be joining them at 14 universities up and down the country to make sure that first taste is a meat free one!
We will be sampling Linda McCartney products in our Linda tour van and giving away goodies. The first 25 people at each destination will get their hands on some exclusive ‘tour’ goods, as well as a branded bag packed with recipe cards, aprons and plenty more… so there’s no excuse to shy away from the kitchen!
We hope to encourage students to go back to their halls and student digs, and rustle up some delicious meat free meals with their new housemates.
You can follow all the action using #MeatFreeFeasts or follow us on Twitter @LindaFoods.
VEGANUARY! January 15, 2016 14:25
Recent research has estimated that over the Christmas period, each Brit ate a whopping 30,000 more calories than normal!* Can you imagine what that looks like? We’ve worked out it’s the equivalent of 13 Victoria sponge cakes and 144 scoops of ice-cream over a 30 day period!
Don’t get us wrong, we love Christmas and all the overindulgence it brings, but is anyone else feeling the need to simplify? With that in mind, this month we are giving Veganuary a go. It’s a global campaign that encourages people to try going vegan for the first month of the year.
The non-profit organisation Veganuary explain on their website: “Veganism is one of the most effective choices a person can make to reduce the suffering of animals, help the planet and improve personal health.”
Eating vegan is generally considered to be an effective way of reducing your calorie intake, which is a bit of a plus after all the Christmas feasting! Check out their website for more information if you’re curious - there’s masses of information and recipes.
And don’t forget our delicious range of Vegan-suitable products too, including our award-winning Country Pies, our new-recipe 1/4lb and 50g Burgers, and our Sausages, Sausage Rolls, Sausage Plait and Mince! Check out our range in the “Our Food” tab for details.
*Survey carried out on behalf of Tilda® Basmati Rice by Online Opinions who interviewed 1,000 adults.
STUDENT SOS November 16, 2015 11:33
Did you know that 51% of parents in the UK worry the most about their kids eating habits at University, above all other concerns? There’s a genuine fear amongst parents that when their kids leave home for the first time, they won’t cook and feed themselves properly, referring to gorge on fast food instead of turning to nutritional meals for sustenance. When we discovered this, we wanted to help out students and parents alike so we’ve decided to hand out delicious veggie meals for free direct to students! This week sees the launch of our national tour of selected universities. We’ll be in the foyer of several student unions, watch our social media channels to see where you can find us on Twitter and Facebook! #StudentSOS #InspiredbyLinda
