A ONE-woman business is taking home-made, plant-based food to events and businesses – on an electric bike.

Magda Zuber created Holy Cow six months ago and puts sustainability at the heart of the business.

She makes all her “mostly vegan” food using seasonal, fresh ingredients.

“Holy Cow was born out of passion for creative cooking that can be both healthy, nourishing and satisfying,” she said.

She makes her food from scratch, including burgers, pates, spreads and hummus. She says the flavours are inspired by her travels around the world, as well as her own Polish heritage.

In her first six months of running the business, she has taken her cargo bike to events such as Southbourne Revival and Bournemouth’s Vegan and Yoga Festival.

“The feedback has been amazing. Every little festival I go to, I’ve always sold out,” she said.

“I do everything by myself – marketing, cooking delivery on my bike.

“My huge thing is zero waste. I don’t use any single use plastics, or as little as possible,” she added.

She sources her fruit and vegetables locally in Southbourne, where her suppliers are happy to provide them loose. She uses seasonal ingredients to avoid contributing to the environmental impact of transporting food by air.

When transporting the food on her cargo bike, she reuses her own plastic containers, wrapping individual items in paper as far as possible.

She says catering for 50-70 people on the bike is “totally doable”.

Magda came to the UK 15 years ago, got a degree in education from the University of Winchester and worked in childcare in Lymington.

“I have been in and out of catering. It’s one of those jobs you go into and need a break, then go and do something completely different and then find you’re missing it,” she said.

She said she would be happy just to encourage people to eat meat less often. “I’m not one of those preachy vegans,” she said.

She will be at Castlepoint for the next two Saturdays and at Dorset Vegan Festival on August 31.
