The Kentish Soap Company
Long before we ever made our first bar of soap, we've always cared about the environment, and we promised to always continue this love affair, which we're proud to say we have. We’re proud to be a corporate member of Kent Wildlife Trust and a Thames Estuary visionary company.
Our natural award-winning soaps, candles, bath and body products are all handmade in small batches to ensure we maintain our high quality. We also make sure that no artificial colours or fragrances are used at any stage of the process.
We've also never used palm oil in our products, and we never will. And to make sure we're going above and beyond for the environment, all our products are vegan-friendly and come in plastic-free packaging.
East/West Kent Hunt Saboteurs
The Hunt Saboteurs Association (HSA) is a UK organisation that uses hunt sabotage as a means of direct action to stop illegal fox, hare & mink hunting, as well as game shooting.
We use "non violent direct action tactics” in the field to save hunted wildlife, as well as covert tactics (using drones & video cameras), also campaigning against bloodsports, and organising demonstrations at public hunting events.
Middle Wich Crafts
We are Ian and Jill, husband and wife, and we make delicious Artisan Vegan Fudge. It is our own recipe and is made in our home in Middlewich, Cheshire. We love to see people's faces light up when they try our fudge for the first time as it's SO gorgeous!
Evelicious Vegan Food
I'm a mum of two who loves baking and feeding people 🙂 My dream is to have a vegan food truck and one day open vegan restaurant. We all have to start somewhere so I have decided to open my little home-baked business and do what I love the most: BAKE. I offer savoury snacks, cakes and cookies but I'm not afraid to try new things. Try my wafers and you'll know what I am talking about. I try to cater for everyone including people with food intolerance or allergies.
Vegan Stevens is a Kent Based mobile food truck business run by a husband and wife team, who are passionate about vegan food. After years of going to events with limited vegan food options we wanted to bring something indulgent to the local vegan fast food scene. Vegan Stevens serve Classic American Style Junk Food inspired by the 50's diner era. Our Menu is focused around Big Burgers and Loaded Hot Dogs. We use moving mountains burger patties and hot dogs as we feel these are the best quality meat substitutes for our style of cooking. Our burgers are paired with a range of fillings to create big juicy burger stacks with a vegan brioche bun. Our Hotdogs can be served with the classic mustard and ketchup combo, or for those feeling adventurous we have our Mexican and chilli dogs. We also serve fried 'Chicken' burgers and 'Bacon'
made from Seitan freshly prepared by ourselves.
We're a new business and are excited to become a bigger part of the local vegan community in Kent.
