Karris is an animal lover and passionate vegan, who co-founded TheVeganKind with her partner Scott in 2013. Having been frustrated at the lack of vegan options in various supermarkets, Karris came up with the idea of a monthly vegan goodie box, posted straight through the door.
Karris was a vegetarian long-term, until stumbling across a video on YouTube showing male baby chicks being ground alive, which is a common practice in the egg industry. Upon realising that being vegetarian still contributed to animals suffering, she started to change her diet and quickly eliminated animal products.
As the mother of two vegan children (aged 2 and 6), wife to Scott (the other co-founder of TVK), and managing director of an exciting business, she doesn’t get too much time to herself, but if she does, you can normally find her lostin a good book, or catching up on her favourite youtube/instagram accounts.

Spoon-free, each serving provides the delicious taste and plant-protein rich nutritional benefits of Nush in a mess-free and convenient format.
The hassle-free range comes in a box of five tubes, making them a perfect lunchbox addition and they can also be frozen, thawing out in time to be eaten. Ideal for picnics, they can also be enjoyed as an after-school treat or on the move to keep the little ones going until you get home.
Kids love them for their delicious taste and parents will love them for their all-natural ingredients. Each portable tube is vegan, free from refined sugar, gluten, soya, preservatives and additives and is comprised of whole ingredients. The light and creamy yoghurt is produced by blending the best quality avola almonds from Sicily with filtered water and vegan probiotic cultures. Fresh British strawberries and blueberries are pureed and added to each serving
