Recipes by Merchant Gourmet, now on Facebook Messenger

In September 2017, to coincide with the launch of Grain & Graze, Merchant Gourmet launched GrainBot – the UK’s first healthy eating chatbot.

GrainBot allowed customers in the Grain & Graze store to scan a code using their mobile, and return a specific recipe, or collection of recipes for them to try at home.

How does it work?

It’s simple – just send us a message on Facebook! By tapping on the Facebook Messenger icon at the bottom right of this page and click ‘Chat Now‘. Unlock a collection of recipes and videos (coming soon) which can be accessed in your pocket at any time. We regularly update GrainBot, so you can access the latest and greatest recipes whenever you need. Browse GrainBot in the supermarket, on the bus, wherever! It’s the quickest and easiest way to discover your next healthy meal inspiration.

Scan the secret code

Want to test out the secret code scanner to unlock GrainBot? It’s easy – simply open the Facebook Messenger app on your mobile. Tap ‘People’ at the bottom, then hit ‘Scan code’. You’ll see a circular camera open – you’ve just got to scan the circular Messenger code you can see on the right hand side of this page!
