Work

Vekitchen was conceived and founded by entrepreneur Sunil Gopalan to create and deliver 100% plant-based food to selected locations across the U.K. and overseas, with multiple production, delivery and service options using a mix of dark kitchens (delivery-only) and lit kitchens (eat-in plus delivery/click and collect).

Sunil invited experienced restaurateur and F&B consultant Ray Duhaney to join Vekitchen as co-founder to develop the concept and manage the company. Sunil also invited Martin Foxton, CEO and Founder of leading City-based interior fit-out company MGF Interiors, to join him as co-investor.

 

Vekitchen is a response to the global and urgent call from environmentalists and climate change experts to help reduce global warming and carbon emissions by changing our food eating patterns and reducing our dependence on polluting fossil fuels, plastics, animal husbandry and declining fish stocks.

Vekitchen’s 100% plant-based food, using produce sourced wherever possible from ‘low food miles’ outlets, is cooked in green energy kitchens and delivered in zero-plastic packaging, placing sustainability at the heart of its kitchens. The menus, reflecting our preference for healthy and nutritious food with global flavours, have been crafted by a team of experienced food developers including Philli Armitage-Jones, finalist on the BBC’s Masterchef: The Professionals. Vekitchen’s cuisine is accompanied by a range of organic wines and beers, shakes, kombuchas, juices and beverages produced using processes that exclude the use of artificial chemical fertilisers, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides.

Our first all day, every day Vekitchen at 39 Northcote Road, London SW11 features stunning interiors designed by Shaun Clarkson ID, and artwork by renowned photographer Adrian Houston.
