The best tailor made meat subsitutes

Meat substitute company

Schouten has been a pioneer in the field of meat substitutes since 1990, 30 years ago. Henk Schouten was the first Dutchman to develop products based on vegetable proteins, making him one of the founders of the meat substitutes market in Europe. And with that Schouten Europe was born, the meat substitute company.

Worldwide growth in meat substitutes

In recent years, the market for meat substitutes has really taken off. As can also be seen in the graph on the rigth, this growth will continue in the coming years, also in the USA.

Vegetarian and vegan products

As a meat substitute company, we produce various vegetarian and vegan products at Schouten. We divide our range into meat-like products, our Classics, and products with their own identity, the Variations.

Classics are vegetarian and vegan products, such as fish fingers, hamburger, sausages, and cutlets.

Variations are products with their own identity, such as a lentil buger. These products are made from various legumes, vegetables, seeds, and nuts.
