Vegan, Lactose Free Camping and Expedition Food
Italian Comfort Food with a Twist
Our vegan orzo bolognese is a twist on the classic Italian dish. Instead of beef mince, we use healthy soya; instead of spaghetti, we used orzo tiny, rice-shaped pasta. To this we add a delicate balance of oregano and star anise, mixed in a traditional tomato sauce. This is a meal guaranteed to please the whole family, offering a real a taste of Italian comfort food when youre far away from home.
Shelf life is one year from manufacture with the compostable packaging.
The packaging is compostable so you need a pan to rehydrate it in and a way of measuring your water.

These compostable bags are made from bio-based sources, including sugar cane, which means they are fully compostable and should disintegrate within a year in compost, faster if the levels of warmth, moisture and air exposure are right.
Disposing of the packets
To dispose of your pouches in an environmentally-friendly way, we recommend that you either:
Place them in compost
Our pouches are certified for home and industrial compost, and meet food regulation requirements in Europe and the USA*. The ideal conditions for compost include warm temperatures and exposure to air. The composted materials can then be used as fertiliser. Possibly the first plastic free camping and expedition food in pouches.
Throw them away in household waste
Not everyone has access to compost facilities. While throwing your compostable pouch into common household waste means it will end up in landfill, it will still compost down to nothing in less than a year. This is compared to plastic which can take over 500 years to do the same.
Please note: Do not put these packets in your recycling bin, as they are compostable not recyclable. Please also do not leave them outdoors, as they still take a while to break down to nothing.
