The world’s biggest producer of packaged food products, Nestle, adds a new product to its extensive line of vegan products that go along with the brand name Garden Gourmet. Garden Gourmet offers vegan, plant based patties in a variety of flavors along with other soy and other plant based products like deli meats, salami, schnitzel etc. The newest products to join this brand are bratwursts and chorizo style sausages which they offer in three flavors: habanero cheddar, Asian ginger scallion and chicken apple.
“Nestlé flagged its "increased focus on plant-based offerings" in December when it announced the sale of 60% of its charcuterie brand Herta to Spanish food company Casa Tarradellas. Under the terms of the deal, Nestle retained Herta's vegetarian business. The company's push into plant-based food comes as consumers and governments pressure big business to address issues such as waste, pollution and climate change. Compared to a pork-based sausage, a soy-based sausage can account for roughly 90% less CO2, 90 percent less water and 80% less land use,” according to a report by CNN.
Nestle is the world’s largest F&B company offering more than 2000 varieties of products. It is based in Switzerland and was founded in 1866 by Henri Nestle.
