Nestlé is bringing a new food brand to the UK, offering healthy meat-free products for consumers looking to cut down on meat but not wanting to compromise on taste. Answering the popular consumer lifestyle trend; flexitarianism, or eating less meat and more plant-based protein, Garden Gourmet offers an exciting variety of meat alternatives made with the highest quality ingredients.

Nestlé’s chefs and nutritionists have worked together to develop a range of 12 plant-based products, ranging from meat-free burgers, mince and chicken style pieces to veggie flavours, including quinoa and broccoli bakes and bright beetroot falafel.

Paula Jordan, Managing Director of Nestlé’s UK Food Division, says: “We are incredibly excited to introduce this new delicious food brand into the meat-free category which is one of the most innovative areas in the food segment. We find that people want to enjoy a healthier diet and try to eat less meat, but they are sometimes disappointed with the taste. We’ve been working hard to offer something different to consumers and have developed a versatile range of delicious meat-free products packed with flavour to make sure there is no need to compromise on taste ever again.”

She adds: “We believe that vegetarian cooking is more than just cooking vegetables; it’s about new tastes, flavours and an exciting experience, as well as leading a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.

“Meat-free doesn’t have to mean excitement free and Garden Gourmet is here to help revolutionise the vegetarian category by banishing bland and livening up mealtimes with a fantastic range of delicious veggie products.”

All the products within the range are made with no artificial flavours or preservatives. Garden Gourmet’s meat substitute products are a source of protein, which helps muscle mass growth and maintenance as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle. They are also a source of fibre. Additionally, none of the products are high in salt, sugar, fat or saturated fat meaning they have no red labels under the colour-coded nutrition labelling system. The Garden Gourmet range also meets the salt targets recommended by Government for meat alternatives.
