Profit-with-purpose restaurant and food brand Farmstand has pledged its commitment to invest in physical locations after confirming it will open a second bricks and mortar location in Canary Wharf.
The 1,000 square metre site will launch at the end of February in Cabot Place, bringing its unique mix of plant-powered food, ethical-trade coffee, organic wine, seasonal beer and a “ground-breaking” approach to sustainability.
It will be open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch and dinner, serving a menu that is 80% plant-based, 5% sustainable fish and 15% ethical meat.
Dishes will be high in nutritional value and low in environmental impact, and available for eat in, take away and catering.
Farmstand’s menu is based on the diet that its founder Steven Novick has been following since he was diagnosed with cancer and he believes it has been vital to improving his health.
“Eating a plant-powered diet increase your chances of living a happy, active life,” he said. “And despite the fact that food has never been easier to find, order or have delivered, most people simply don’t have access to convenient, affordable and legitimately healthy, plant-based food. We’re changing that.”
Every dish is made from scratch by the Farmstand team using seasonal ingredients sourced from UK-based ethical suppliers. It is also free from dairy, added sugar and artificial ingredients.
Farmstand already runs a site in Covent Garden and operates a central kitchen in Deptford which also serves as a test kitchen for up and coming cooks and chefs from around the world.
