Frozen & Chilled Vegan & Vegetarian Goods Now At The Refilling Station
Stepping it up
We've moved into a new phase at The Refilling Station in Leeds - we can now offer chilled and frozen foods to hopefully complete your shopping! Unfortunately, we can't fit a fridge or freezer in the Harrogate shop as its much smaller.
We introduced our freezer in June and just last week we received our fridge! They're located on the top section of our shop with their unattractive backs facing the shop window! I am proud that we have reached each stage slowly, talking to customers and finding out what you need as we go along.
We'll be adding items to our webshop as soon as we can.
The challenge with the new phase is finding items that are packed in minimum plastic but still fulfil the needs of shoppers looking for more sustainable products. We try to have as little waste packaging as possible but rest assured that the products themselves tick ethical boxes in other areas such as being plant-based, local or organic. Because the fridge and freezer are very new to us we're trialling the range of foods we stock in them.
We are currently stocking
- Vegan spreadable/block butter
- Vegan Chease
- Fresh Oat Milk
- Fresh Sauerkraut
- Vegan Bacon
- Vegan 'chickn' Slices
Coming very soon - Oat milk and Juices in returnable glass bottles from a local supplier. We're toying with stocking dairy milk in returnable glass bottles, plus dairy cream and butter so let us know if this is something you'd like to see. We're open to other chilled suggestions too.
We are currently stocking:
- Northern Bloc Vegan Ice Cream from Leeds - completely plastic-free!
- Organic Ice Lollies
- Vegan Pizza
- Fry's Plant-based Sausages and Burgers and crispy 'prawns'
- Frozen organic vegetables and chips
- Oomph Kebab
We want to hear from you
Again we'd love feedback on what you would like to see in the fridge, freezer or indeed anything else in our shop.
