The Vurgers use a selection of vegetables, seeds, nuts and legumes that are combined for their popular menu.

This outstanding response has made the fundraising event the fastest ever restaurant raise to take place on the popular crowdfunding platform Crowdcube. The co-founders Neil and Rachel wanted to raise £180,000 to be exchanged for 23.08% equity on a permanent restaurant site. However when the campaign closes on the 6th of July, the company had raised £300,00 which means that the co-founders could increase their equity offer to 33.33%.
