UK’s first Porridge and Granola subscription service launches in Shrewsbury

A unique subscription service which launched this month (June 2019) will bring a healthy, tasty breakfast direct to your letterbox with flavours which change monthly.

Oat Pantry will deliver Shropshire artisan granola and flavoured porridge to households throughout the UK. The product will not only be healthy due to reduced sugar and all-natural vegan ingredients, but its environmental impact will be minimal due to its plastic-free, recyclable and compostable packaging.

The ‘good breakfast’ people receive will also be doing good as Oat Pantry will be donating a percentage of its profits to different charities.  A different charity will benefit every six months.

Oat Pantry is the brainchild of founder and Shropshire resident, Alex Jenkins, a confirmed foodie who returned to Shrewsbury to launch it after seven years spent living and working in London.

Both porridge and granola products were developed by a passionate team of in-house chefs over the course of a year to ensure every single flavour was a taste sensation.

Alex explains: “Growing up in Shropshire I always recognised the wealth of great food which we have growing on our doorstep and breakfast was always a very important part of the day.

“But when I found myself living and working in London I realised how many people were too busy to eat breakfast or just picked up something fast due to convenience, even though that was not what they really wanted.

“Oat Pantry is about bringing back breakfast with a great artisan product which changes monthly for variety, with flavours as seasonal as possible. It’s also convenient as it’s delivered direct to your home or workplace.

“All of our porridge and granola selections are vegan, gluten free, refined sugar free, as well as being reduced sugar, making it a suitable way to start the day for any member of the family. Best of all it tastes delicious.”

Subscribers will receive two unique flavours such as carrot cake and cherry bakewell, strawberry and pink peppercorn, or teacake every month.  Each contain the highest level of quality ingredients, to ensure both the granola and porridge options are 100% natural.

Alex explains, “The gorgeous flavours you receive change every month, but if you don’t like a certain flavour, there’s the opportunity to switch it out for something classic like fruit and nut or cinnamon and raison, all of which have proved extremely popular with adults and children during our taste tests.”

Oat Pantry packaging is FSC sustainably sourced and recyclable, the pouches are 100 per cent plastic-free and made from a paper material. This means they can be recycled along with paper and cardboard, or composted.

Alex said: “Our first boxes will be going out to customers from Monday 3 June and we know the service is going to be very popular, so we would encourage people to go to our website and sign up as soon as they can.”
