Our Story

One day, two guys got together and had a McDonalds. Perfectly ordinary, right? Wrong. What initially began as a casual conversation turned into the creation of a plan. This was the beginning of establishing a business driven by one single question.

What if we could offer the best experience of plant-based food in London?

This then led to more questions.

What if we could make it more accessible, diverse and affordable than anything else on the market and have it delivered directly to your door?

Those two guys were our foundersDeepak and Wadah, two entrepreneurial guys who really really love food. They saw the gap in the market for healthy Plant-based meals in London that were accessible, affordable and exceptional.

And decided to do something about it.

And so Plant Sumo was born, delivering plant-based meals directly to your door all across London. We celebrate nutritious and delicious plant-based food as food first, open to all people no matter what they eat.

As it should be! picking our plant-based meals has so many benefits you don’t want to miss. Being advantageous to your health, the environment, to animals and to your wallet. 

All this while being insanely tasty? It almost sounds too good to be true.
