Founded by John Vincent and Henry Dimbleby with chef Allegra McEvedy, LEON was named after Vincent’s father. They opened their first restaurant on Carnaby Street, London, in 2004 and now have over 80 restaurants across the UK with a menu inspired by the flavours, variety and natural healthiness of the Mediterranean diet.
Since their first restaurant hit the high street, LEON has gone from strength to strength and with a mission “for everyone to eat well and live well”. They have gone on to launch a range of their most loved accompaniments from the restaurants to be enjoyed at home. The range includes plant-rich dips and restaurant favourite Waffles Fries.
All products are created with LEON’s flavour-first philosophy using no artificial ingredients and aim to bring a little bit of LEON to you at home and a lot of joy to your food.
Helping plants taste good has been at the heart of LEON since we began, and we believe our delicious plant-forward dips are another brilliant way of doing this. Like all the LEON groceries the dips have been made with LEON’s flavour-first philosophy using no artificial ingredients – the Pea-Lentiful and Hummus dips are all naturally vegan too! We’re really excited for LEON Grocery to now be available to Booths customers and help even more people enjoy tasty, convenient and naturally fast food at home.Ashley Davis, Managing Director of LEON Grocery
