Planet

It starts with a healthy you

We genuinely care about what you eat. Health problems related to obesity and climate change are two of the biggest issues facing the world today. It’s a fact that excessive meat consumption and its intensive production are major contributors to the situation. We want to face these issues head on and encourage people to reduce their meat consumption.

The Pioneers of Food

With a rapidly growing global population, the future of food is one of humankind’s biggest challenges. To help play our part, Quorn Foods launched the Pioneers Film Fund, a call to UK filmmakers to tell the important stories of people finding solutions to how we can sustainably feed ourselves in the future. This short trailer showcases the winning three beautifully shot films – all with incredible stories.
