Welcome to Clover Food Lab


We want you to dream about vegetables.

Why? If we serve you unforgettable vegetables and you start dreaming about them, together we make the world a better place.

The meat industry is the #3 contributor to greenhouse gas emissions.

I read that in 2007.

12 months later I opened Clover with a food truck as a sort of “lab” to test ideas and “invent” a new approach to food with your help.

Day 1 we had one question: is this so delicious you’ll dream about it?

Everything we are today, every single recipe, everything we do, has been developed with help from our customers.

Join us:

(1) Talk to us honestly about your meal

(2) Tell your friends about Clover!
