Kate Moss’s brother has joined Croydon’s pop-up healthy food zone serving Vietnamese cuisine to locals from his Vietvan.
Nick Moss, who also previously strode the catwalk, runs Vietvan with his partner Tracy Pooley. They are now pitched with other Croydon entrepreneurs already trading outside Croydon College every Thursday and Friday from 11am to 3pm.
The healthy food zone was established earlier this year by the council’s Food Flagship programme with the Greater London Authority. The programme works with schools and communities to improve cooking, food growing and nutrition among residents.
Nick and Tracy prepare fresh ingredients for their Vietnamese-influenced menu of banh mi (baguette) and fresh salads, with a choice of fillings including slow-cooked lemongrass star anise beef, spicy pulled pork, sweet kaffir chicken, and lemongrass and ginger tofu.
“Croydon’s Food Flagship programme is supporting schools, residents and businesses to transform the local food culture so that we can reduce incidences of obesity in adults and children.
“It’s great that Vietvan is now part of our pop-up healthy food zone. We look forward to even more healthy food businesses coming onboard.”
Nick Moss said: “We love being part of Croydon’s pop-up healthy food zone. Our Vietnamese street food offers a fresh and unique taste sensation. Good food can be tasty, quick and convenient.
“The food zone is helping us, and the other traders to share our home-made delights and get even more residents, students and local workers eating healthier throughout their day.”
Vietvan joins businesses Joe+Santini Coffee, Brown Shuga Dumplin, Chilli Station and Eat Me Baking at the pop-up food zone.
