nadim tanya We are honoured to have Nadim & Tanya join us again.

Their emotional talk at the Winter Conference really hit home with delegates, a very powerful story and message.  

They are returning to tell us more about the work of the foundation, the introduction of Natasha's Law, and the importance of taking food allergies seriously.



Matt Pritchard
The Dirty Vegan matt

Formerly known as the front man of MTV’s Dirty Sanchez, Matt has left his pranking days behind for his love of vegan food, health and fitness.

Matt’s first cooking series, Dirty Vegan, premiered on BBC 1 Wales to wide acclaim, coinciding with his vegan cookbook of the same name, which was described by Waitrose magazine as having universal appeal. The series featured Matt cooking a variety of exciting dishes to win over the Welsh public. From a hearty vegan Paella for a women’s rugby team, to tasty energy fuelled meals for school dinners. His mission? To make Wales fitter, healthier and stronger. Convincing the public that plant-based food can be a sustainable lifestyle option!

Following the brand’s success, Matt then published a second cookbook, Dirty Vegan: Another Bite, soon followed by his second instalment of Dirty Vegan TV series on BBC Wales. The second series encouraged the public to try Veganuary and consider a much healthier lifestyle.

We are delighted to add Nadim & Tanya, and Matt, to a speaker line up which already includes Helen Fospero and Adam Kingl.


Remember the TUCO Conference 2019 at York?

It's been a long time since we were all at an in-person TUCO Summer Conference. You can refresh your memory on what our Conferences are all about, by watching our highlights video below – it only runs for three minutes and serves as a great reminder of a pretty spectacular conference from 2019.

Have you taken advantage of your FREE place at Conference? 

This year, TUCO is giving every full member a FREE three-day place. The three-day programme, fully inclusive of conference, exhibition, accommodation, food and drink, usually costs £295 for full members - but your first place is offered to you free of charge by TUCO this year.  To take advantage of this, at the checkout simply select ‘Bursary Place’. 
And then you are welcome to book additional places at the heavily subsidised rate from £295 for the same full three-day package.

We look forward to welcoming you to Keele in July.
