The Mighty Society, founded in 2018, in Leeds, Yorkshire, employs 10 staff. Its goal is to promote sustainability and claims growing peas takes 100x less water than other dairy alternatives such as almonds.

We’re delighted to see our product live on supermarket shelves, providing consumers with a delicious alternative to milk​,” said Nick Watkins, co-founder, The Mighty Society.  

We’ve worked hard to develop a product that is beneficial for the consumer, but also for the planet. It also tastes great.​”
