World player in meat substitutes

As early as 1990, we were convinced that the world would need meat substitutes. That is why we started as a meat replacement company and began developing vegetarian burgers, cutlets, and sausages. Our company has now grown into a global player in this field, and we have one of the largest and most versatile ranges available.

Full-fledged meat substitutes

As a meat substitute company, it is of course important for the products we develop to also be a full, nutritional alternative to meat. That is why we always ensure a high protein content and often add iron and vitamin B12 to the products. However, we do take the guidelines and conditions in certain markets into account as much as possible.

Investments in the development capacity of our meat substitutes

These are challenging times for a Meat substitute company. Many companies are looking for a good partner who can help with finding replacing meat products. In recent years, we at Schouten have mainly invested in R&D capacity, production capacity, and our own quality control team that ensures the food safety of the products.

Schouten USA

In the USA, we now supply various large companies with whom we work intensively to make sure the introduced products are a success on the market. Products are sold in various types of packaging to supermarket brands, wholesalers, food service and food industry companies.

Plant-based recepturen op maat

For a large international QSR chain, we developed plant-based meatballs that were intended as a component in their meals. However, the product was so successful that it has now also gained a permanent place in their retail activities.
