We Have Nothing to Hide

Chances are our ingredients are on your grocery list. Our burgers, sausages, breakfast links and patties, and tempeh are all made of simple, recognizable plant-based ingredients.

It’s part of our mission to improve and simplify the ingredients in all our foods, and we’re striving to do and be better every day.

Made with Your Health in Mind

By sourcing simple ingredients from plants and blending them with fragrant herbs and spices, we process our food only to bring out each ingredient’s natural flavour and full nutritional potential. Because less process is best.
