Clive’s Purely Plant’s (Clive’s) is a Devon-based vegan bakery, which was founded back in 1986. For over 35 years we’ve been making ready-to-eat, plant-based bakes that use the planet’s resources with care. Everything we create is organic, 100% vegan and all our packaging is plastic free.
Our delicious pies are what we are most famous for, but we also have a growing and varied range that includes quiches, savoury tarts and nut roasts. We currently sell to major supermarkets such as Waitrose, Morrisons, Abel & Cole and Ocado, as well as numerous independent health food shops up and down the country. We also export to the US, Australia, and Dubai.
Under new management, we are working to an ambitious 3-year brand plan to significantly grow the business and become a leading manufacturer of plant-based foods.
We exude POSITIVITY and always act with INTEGRITY and HONESTY to deliver super tasty, QUALITY food that’s made with love. It means our glass is always half full, and we get ridiculously excited about planty food! We never, ever compromise on our principles. We’re totally open when it comes to talking about where we are on our journey towards doing things better, and our whole team is super proud of everything we do and make.
Just like the beautifully unique plants that go into our pies, we celebrate diversity here at Clive’s. We believe in equal opportunities for all and pride ourselves on having an inclusive workplace where everyone can be themselves and succeed as part of a welcoming, passionate and hardworking team.
