Feel-good food chain Abokado is projected to turn over £17m following a current turnover of £14m and the opening of its 30th site in London set for early next year.

The healthy, internationally inspired food company has thrived in the "grab and go" sector, providing busy Londoners something fresh for breakfast and lunch.

The business, which aims to stock its shelves with the latest nutritious food trends, attributes this growth in part to millennials, of whom 47 per cent changed their eating habits over the last year toward a healthier diet according to research by PwC.

Founder Mark Lilley said: "We have worked hard to meet growing consumer demands for healthier and diverse dishes in a convenient on-the-go format, which has been integral to driving the brand’s growth and consumer loyalty."

A further six sites are set to be added to Abokado's portfolio by the end of 2017 with a long-term goal to open more than 100 stores in London.
