The Company is an international food business, located in the United Kingdom, whose vision is “to make a meat-free diet a viable, satisfying and sustainable proposition.”

Established in 1993, The Company is now the world's leading manufacturer of meat-free, vegan meat substitutes, distributed in 20 countries worldwide and comprising 5 specialist sub-brands.

History / Introduction
The Company sends out over 3,800,000 packaged retail products, and a further 105 tons of bulk product for use in 3rd-party free-from manufacturing each year making them a global player in a growing industry.
Through their taste-obsessed research and development, they are focused on delivering a wide variety of delicious and healthy meat-substitutes to satisfy the most discerning meat-reducer.
In short, they want to deliver all of the taste and texture of meat, but without the harmful dietary, environmental, welfare and sustainability issues.

All of their products are free from animal and dairy products. They are, therefore, all vegan and suitable for vegetarians. They are also much more sustainable than traditional animal-based foods. This makes them particularly good for sufferers of lactose intolerances. They are also free from all artificial colorings, genetically modified organisms and hydrogenated fats and oils.
Some of their products are also low-gluten and even soya-free.
