Run On Pulses
Set up in 2017 by sisters Hazel Refat & Heather Vaughan in Stradbally, Co Laois. Hazel & Heather grew up surrounded by the sights, sounds and tastes of The Wild Atlantic Way where fresh food and vegetables were taken for granted. “Our passion for wholesome food began there and has remained with us over the years”. While working and living abroad we had the opportunity to mix with other cultures and to savour their food. It gave us an appreciation of how different blends of spices and herbs can really enhance the flavour of food and how pulses can make a delicious meal.” Making the choice to come back home to live was easy but the sisters found it difficult to find non meat meal options.
In 2017 they took the plunge and started producing food in their own kitchen. Their vision has remained constant – to produce healthy, tasty, convenient food that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Their products include a variety of vegan burgers such as Black Bean & Sweet Potato, Chickpea & Mushroom, Red Lentil & Carrot.
