Schouten: Vegan and vegetarian manufacturer since 1990

Like most vegan manufacturers, we produce a wide range of products. However, our many years of experience, expertise and quality set us apart from the other vegan manufacturers. Schouten was the first Dutch company to focus on developing vegetarian and vegan food products, starting in 1990. Since then, we have become active in over 40 countries across the globe. We have a presence in the UK, the USA, the Middle East, as well as Central America and Africa. We supply our products through various channels such as food service, industry, and retail.

We offer a sustainable alternative to meat, because we firmly believe that the world needs a way of eating that relies less on animals and more on plants. We want to produce vegetarian and vegan products in an honest and transparent way, respecting humanity, animals, and the environment. Our meat substitutes are based on high-quality plant  proteins, so our clients can stand out in the market. Our aim is to offer an appealing, varied and tasty range for flexitarians, vegetarians and vegans.

As a vegan manufacturer, we offer a wide range of vegetarian and vegan products,  available in any kind of packaging you require. And we go further – we can work together with you to develop new products. If you’re interested, get in touch with us for a no-obligation discussion.
