We're CHUNK! I'm the owner, Amy, and I set CHUNK up 3 years ago while studying at University. Read about our story below or follow us on social media to keep up with what we're up to!
Here at CHUNK, we're doing things differently. Founded during the challenging days of the COVID-19 pandemic, we're proud to be a homegrown success story that began at my Mum's house during lockdown, and flourished in a University shared house in Hyde Park.
Our journey partly started out of necessity as I needed to support myself while at University during COVID, however it turned into a simple yet powerful idea that is still true 3 years later: to create incredible cookies that embrace veganism and sustainability without compromising on flavour. Our cookies are made from high quality ingredients, are insanely soft and gooey, are kind to the planet, are better value than a lot of non-vegan alternatives on the market, and come with an amazing community you can't find anywhere else. Buying CHUNK is not just about buying a cookie, it's about making a decision that has a multitude of positive impacts. Buying one cookie supports a dream, it supports University Societies, local cafes, it avoids unnecessary animal torture, helps the planet and makes a positive change.
We love what we do and we love our cookies. We've gone from baking at my Mum's house during lockdown, to moving back up to Uni and baking in a shared house, to quickly outgrowing that and getting our own house, to quickly outgrowing that and moving into a house with a bakery downstairs (phew!). We craft each cookie with lots of love and care in our Burley bakery, using only the finest plant-based ingredients and sustainable practices. We still use the same awesome recipe we did 3 years ago and it's a 24 hour process to bake the cookies. We work 7 days a week, every week, to bake cookies that are shipped across the country.
CHUNK is for the eco conscious, eco curious, those who are tired of facing expensive, limited vegan/dairy free options, or those just wanting to make a positive impact while eating amazing cookies.
Whatever your reason, we're glad you're here!
