Schouten began as a family business, and was the first producer of meat substitutes in the Netherlands. We have since grown into an innovative player in the food sector. We develop and produce vegetarian and vegan products for businesses in the food sector, from retailers to QSR and industrial applications. We operate within a growing market: the number of individuals finding their way to the vegetarian section is ever-increasing and plant-based burgers have become a trending menu staple.

From smoky bacon bits to classic tofu – we carry a highly extensive product range

All of our products are made from plant-based proteins, such as soy, wheat and peas. The core ingredients are then mixed with various grains and a selection of vegetables such as mushrooms, cauliflower, pumpkin and sweet corn. They are flavoured with various herbs and enriched with key vitamins and minerals. New meat substitutes and the most creative combinations are added to our selection regularly.

Producer? Plant-based: A guarantee for success!

More and more producers of meals, pizzas, salads, soups and various other product categories use plant-based protein products for successful market introductions. Please download our white paper to find out how plant-based protein products add value to your business.
