Schouten Europe starts deliveries to Australia

After success in Europe, North America, Asia, and the Middle East, Dutch family business Schouten Europe B.V. will now also supply vegetarian products in Australia. As of this summer, Schouten’s products will be available in more than 50 countries.

Australian supermarkets

An Australian company Schouten met during an international trade fair last year has started purchasing a selection of vegetable protein-based products. These products will soon go on sale in various Australian supermarkets.


Schouten’s commercial director Arjaan van der Giessen said the company was taking logical steps. “The market for products based on vegetable proteins is growing rapidly worldwide. In recent years, we have been exporting our products to more and more countries. With the addition of Australia, we now deliver to more than 50 countries. A true milestone.”

Schouten will also be launching in Japan, Russia, Aruba, and Kenya, where the Brabant-based company will supply plant-based products to a number of fast food chains.

First Dutch company

In 1990, Schouten became the first Dutch company to develop meat substitutes based on vegetable proteins. With one of the most extensive and varied assortments in the world, Schouten’s products are sold under their own GoodBite brand and under private labels in supermarkets both in the Netherlands and abroad. Schouten also develops many new products based on customer demand.
