Meat-free sauces that aim to pack a big flavour punch
Vegan sauce company Porter & Nash has spotted a plant-based gap in the market
Chefs Gavin Cassidy and Eoin Lennon: have over 50 years’ experience in the food industry between them
While “normal” eaters are well catered for when it comes to buying prepared sauces, the choice for vegans and vegetarians is poor and largely confined to tomato-based sauces in one form or another. Spotting this gap in the market and also encouraged by the growing sales of plant-based foods, chefs Gavin Cassidy and Eoin Lennon decided the time was right to create their vegan sauce company Porter & Nash.
Cassidy and Lennon have over 50 years’ experience in the food industry between them. Both trained in catering in their teens and met as mature students at TU Tallaght while topping up their qualifications with a culinary arts degree. As part of their course they had to develop new food products and it was during this process in early 2018 that the idea for Porter & Nash was born.
