ChicP was born to combat food waste. Our founder Hannah started making hummus using surplus vegetables from London wholesale markets, helping to tackle food waste and encourage people to eat a healthier, more sustainable diet. She wanted to create food that had a positive impact on her community, while also shaping health habits for the better, working with farmers to use their surplus produce in her products.

Misshapen vegetables that are used to make ChicP hummus and veggie bites


40% of British crops are rejected because of their shape or size. 

1/3 of the food we produce in the UK is never eaten.

600,000 tonnes of food are wasted in restaurants per year.

300,000 tonnes of food wasted by supermarkets per year. 

7 million tonnes per year are wasted within the home.

The list goes on...

  • Vegan lunch made by ChicP founder Hannah McCollum

    Hannah has catered throughout Europe and the UK, cooking for large families and friends. She hated seeing vast amounts of food and packaging wasted at events, so instead created dips and hummus from leftover dishes.

    Hannah’s ambitions are to create a more sustainable future and to encourage as many people as possible to eat plant-based diets. If we all ate less meat and fish and ate food that was local and seasonal, the planet would be in a much better state and we would all be leading healthier, happier more productive lives. Her next mission is plant-based alternative plastic this space.

  • ChicP Spinach and Parsley hummus

    Hannah is hugely driven by health and the functionality of ingredients. All of the ChicP products are vegan, sugar-free, natural and healthy. They are all high in fibre and protein and full of healthy fats as well as containing 30% vegetable content.
