From The Vegan Kind

Food giant Nestlé is bringing Garden Gourmet to UK supermarkets with the next generation of meat-alternatives, the Sensational range.

From 20th September, plant-based fans will be able to get their hands on theses super realistic vegan products. 

From succulent meat-free burgers to tender and flavoursome vegan fillet pieces, the Garden Gourmet Sensational range has the ‘meatiest’ flavour and a juicier than ever texture.

Made with high quality ingredients, including responsibly sourced soya beans, the range offers a healthy and versatile choice of vegan products for food lovers looking to cut down on meat but not wanting to compromise on taste.

Honza Dusanek, Managing Director for Food and Dairy at Nestlé UK and Ireland, said: “With more and more people looking for great-tasting, more sustainable plant-based food, we are very excited to bring the Garden Gourmet range to UK supermarkets with our tastiest and juiciest Sensational range.

“We want people to fall in love with plant-based eating at first bite which is why we have worked hard to deliver even more meat-like flavour and texture to satisfy even the most discerning of taste buds.

“Our aim is to make plant-based food an easier and more attractive choice for people who want food that is good for them and good for the planet so our new Garden Gourmet range will be offered at good value to help consumers enjoy it week in, week out.”

The range initially includes four delicious and versatile plant-based products, consisting of the incredibly juicy Sensational burger, mince, Cumberland-style sausages and Mediterranean-style fillet pieces which can be easily switched into family favourite meals.

As well as being delicious, the new Garden Gourmet’s meat substitute products are high in protein and fibre. None of the products are high in fat, saturated fat, sugar or salt meaning they have no red labels under the colour-coded nutrition labelling system.

Not only do Garden Gourmet products are better for you, they are also better for the planet as they have lower carbon footprint than meat products. 

Garden Gourmet plant-based meat has already been available in the UK. Subway UK uses Garden Gourmet vegan ‘meatballs’ in their hugely popular ‘Meatless Meatball Marinara’. Last year, the ‘Meatless Meatball Marinara’ claimed the top spot at PETA’s annual Vegan Food Awards in the Best Vegan Sandwich category.

Nestlé is expanding its offering of delicious and more sustainable plant-based food options. The company launched dairy-free coffee mixes and Carnation Vegan condensed milk alternative, plant-based milk Wunda, and vegan version of KitKat.
