Gordon Ramsay is working with a vegan ramen brand to tackle food insecurity amid the cost of living crisis.

The Michelin-starred chef has joined food tech brand Borealis Foods as an advisor and brand ambassador.

Borealis Foods owns Chef Woo Ramen – a subsidiary dedicated to providing ‘healthy, affordable and continent meals to those who lack access to proper nutrition. 

It has created what it describes as the world’s ‘first plant-based ramen noodle with 20 grams of protein per serving’.

Tackling food insecurity 

“With the current cost-of-living crisis on everyone’s minds and rising food prices being a world-wide problem, now more than ever, households across America face the very real issue of food insecurity,” said Ramsay. 

“In conversation with [Borealis], I discovered we share a similar vision on how important it is to make nutritious and delicious options that are readily available, and more importantly, affordable.

“I’ve already got some big ideas. I’m really looking forward to collaborating with the Borealis Foods team on their Chef Woo products in the coming months.”

Borealis founder and CEO Reza Soltanzadeh added: “Since our founding in 2019… We’ve made great progress in our purpose to address the issue of nutritious food insecurity. We’re looking to build on these efforts through our alliance with Gordon Ramsay. 

“It’s obvious that Gordon shares our passion for ensuring healthy food choices for the many who deserve truly affordable, high-quality nutrition.”

Gordon Ramsay on veganism

Ramsay used to be extremely critical of vegans back in the day. However, the hot-headed chef admitted last year that he ‘loves’ vegan food, and regular promotes plant-based cooking.

Earlier this year, he opened the doors to a new Hell’s Kitchen which boasted a menu that was predominantly meat-free.

Located in Washington DC, the eatery offers Tofu Scallops, Butternut Squash Risotto, Beluga Lentils with sautéed veg, and a Golden Beet Salad. Prices for meat-free mains average at $18.
