Products include plant-based ready meals, additive-free crackers and vegan treats.

New Frontiers Alumni Shane Ryan is the founder of fiid which makes plant-based ready meals. The range is called Nourishing Lunch Bowls and there are three varieties: smoky Mexican black bean chilli, Moroccan chickpea tagine and Italian sundried tomato and lentil ragu. They come in single-serving pouches and don’t need to be chilled.

“Each meal is all-natural, suitable for vegans, high in protein and made using 50 per cent vegetables to deliver a whopping three of your five a day. We describe fiid as ‘hyper convenient’ because it doesn’t need refrigeration making it the ultimate kitchen cupboard or office drawer staple,” Ryan says.
