Having a meat free day just once a week can make a huge positive impact on the environment, which is why we’ve made it our mission to help make reducing red or processed meat consumption easy with a variety of great tasting products ready to be included in many gorgeous plant-based meals.
Plant-Based Foods And The Environment
The Garden Gourmet range of plant- based ingredients was developed based on the belief that the more people who eat plant-based food, the better the world will be3.
Plant-based diets are proven to be less environmentally intensive than meat-based diets, with animal agriculture putting a burden on the health of our planet due to the resources required (land, food and water). These cause greenhouse gas emissions which stop heat from escaping the planet and contribute to climate change.

We plan to continue to develop our range to offer consumers tasty plant-based food options, rich in protein4 and using ingredients that help preserve our planet for future generations.
