New Zealand-based Sustainable Foods will be launching a new line of plant-based products that the company claims has a lower impact on the environment compared to traditional meat items.
According to a press release seen by Green Queen, the Plan*t products are high on nutrition and protein, low in fat, cholesterol and sugar, with hemp possessing cardiovascular, neurological and anti-inflammatory benefits. Based on the field-to-plate concept, the products are made with sustainably sourced local ingredients and when consumers buy these products, they will be supporting jobs and local businesses in the country.
In addition, the company calls itself kaitiaki (guardians) of the planet and focuses on limiting its energy consumption, switching to renewables and working on recyclable, locally sourced packaging. It aims to build a sustainable food system together with government and grower associations in Aotearoa(Māori name for New Zealand). It has even formed strategic relationships with NZ’s Food Innovation Network, Greenfern Industries and The Riddet Institute for innovative product manufacturing.
