In 2016, sisters-in-law Susan and Juliette, founded Pep & Lekker to provide healthy wholesome nutritious vegan food that can be enjoyed by everyone. Henry, Susan’s son, had become vegan, and being a lazy student his health suffered. A busy working Mum, Susan was frustrated that too much vegan food was highly processed, and unappealing for the rest of the family. She was shocked that so much food that purported to be healthy wasn’t and included ingredients that only a food scientist would understand. Susan and Juliette worked with vegan chefs and nutritionists to come up with their first recipes for simple wholesome food, that was free from nasties but full of taste. Food that is as good as home made and great for vegans, anyone that wants to reduce the amount of meat they eat, and make better eating choices.
