Ben Davy brings experience of plant-based menu options at some of Leeds’ top gastronomic venues
Plant-based company Meatless Farm has appointed Ben Davy as its new culinary development chef to head up the taste and texture development of new and existing products for the company, headquartered in Leeds, Yorkshire.
Davy has more than seven years’ experience as a development chef, having worked for several top eateries in Leeds, including the Ox Club, Belgrave Music Hall & Canteen, and Water Lane Boathouse. He has worked at venues noted for their meat dishes, some of which offered plant-based menu options.
Davy said: “My experience has a focus on creating sustainable dishes and championing ethical food, often including meat. Joining Meatless Farm is a natural extension of that ethos, and an important step for me and I can’t wait to use my knowledge of flavour to help develop Meatless Farm’s next generation meat alternatives. Despite foodservice facing huge challenges, there is growing demand for quality plant-based food on menus, in addition to on shelf.”
Last month Meatless Farm announced $31 million in fundraising which it stated it is using to drive its global growth and innovation.
