Welcome to our website.
I started pod in 2005 after a health scare; whilst getting fit afterwards I couldn't find anywhere serving proper, natural food near work.
We're a new kind of food business, created by a group of people who are genuinely passionate about what we're doing. Now, after 8 years there are over 20 pods across London and more are opening all the time. We're pioneering a completely new kind of fast food and we care passionately about four things:
INGREDIENTS. We use natural, meticulously sourced ingredients to make delicious, nutritious food. We're always searching for healthy, ethically produced ingredients, free from additives, preservatives or colourings. Wherever possible, we source from small UK farms and providers, and when something's from further afield we look for the best both in product and in production conditions – like our fairly traded Coffee.
HEALTH & NUTRITION. It's a privilege to be able to create and serve delicious food that's also healthy, and our recipes are filled with protein, grains and wholefoods as a result. We provide detailed nutritional analysis of everything we make on our nutrition page and we care passionately about offering everybody a healthy, balanced diet, whether you're vegetarian, gluten-intolerant, or just keen on healthy eating.
PRINCIPLES. We aim to build a business that we're all proud of, so as well as taking care of what goes into our products, we also care about what those products go into. We serve our food in compostable and recycled packaging, and every pod is constructed using sustainably resourced materials and painted with organic paint.
PEOPLE. Our passionate, committed team is the reason we're growing so fast. Kate Skerritt is master of all things operational, Emma Blackmore is in charge of our delicious, healthy menu and the marketing team communicates everything we do to our growing number of fans.
I've always wanted to build a business that I'm proud of, that supports the people that work for it, and that makes its customers lives better - even in a small way. I'm delighted that so many people enjoy what we're doing and we really appreciate all the feedback you give us.
