What does plant-based mean?

At Rooted, our current ranges do not include any animal products. This means our products contain no meat, no dairy, no honey and no eggs.

Why choose Rooted?

We are a passionately owner-operated business whose founders both have extensive backgrounds in the food and service industries. Both Ashleigh and Matt are deeply familiar with the challenges of incorporating a more plant-based approach into one’s daily diet, and the need for doing it in a delicious and sustainable manner!
