Nick Moss, younger brother of supermodel Kate Moss, and his partner Tracey Pooley have entered into a health food venture. Operating under the brand Vietvan, the dynamic duo is rolling out Vietnamese cuisine in Moss’s home town of Croydon in the popular pop up food zone. The food zone, which first opened earlier this year, intends to encourage not only eating healthily but also to improve cooking skills and awareness of nutrition and food growing in the area. The distinctive yellow food van stands out from the other traders in the line up, who are also out to promote healthy eating in the square opposite Croydon College, every Thursday and Friday between 11am and 3pm.
Initially following in his sister’s footsteps, Nick started modelling at the age of 16, participating in fashion shows and walking for established luxury brands such as Jean Paul Gaultier and Versace, alongside the supermodels of the era including Naomi Campbell and his iconic sister. Inspired by his travels in Asia, Nick bought the van in 2014 at first as a hobby, before starting the business with his partner.
Vietvan boasts a variety of South East Asian-inspired dishes including bahn mi, spicy pulled pork and fresh salads. Nick is intent on proving that his Vietnamese street food is not only tasty and healthy but also quick and convenient for a bite on the go.
