We have a very simple green dream; to help as many people as possible discover the pleasure of plant-based food and eat less meat.
We began life 25 years ago, founded by pioneers who scoured the globe to source the very best ingredients, from Puy lentils to chestnuts. Today our appetite for change is more insatiable than ever, we continually look to pioneer better tasting plant-based food, with better and more simple ingredients, sourced and delivered in ever more sustainable ways.
" There is no doubt we will not tackle the climate crisis until global meat consumption is reduced and we know that it can seem intimidating to those trying to eat plant-based for the first time. As a long-term supporter of Veganuary, Merchant Gourmet has been the catalyst for many people starting their plant-based journey, by providing a quick and easy way to make delicious plant-based meals with natural ingredients that are both good for us and good for the planet"
We know that eating food that is better for your health and better for the planet should never be at the cost of time or taste. We also know that the concept of eating less meat and saving the environment can feel overwhelming, so we have developed our products to allow you to make a positive difference in a simple and delicious way.
At Merchant Gourmet, we stand for Plant-Based Simplicity. Simple products and ingredients that come straight from Mother Nature, simple to prepare, and most importantly, a simple way to help save the planet, one great meal at a time!
At the core of everything we do is the fundamental belief that a world where people eat more plant-based food will benefit our planet and our health. Helping more people to discover plant-based food and eat less meat is what drives us to grow and be better. If everyone in the UK replaced one more red meat meal per week with a plant-based dish, it would reduce the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions by 50M tonnes, the same as taking 16 million cars off the road!
