Perfect for chefs looking to expand their plant-based offering

The team at Harvest Gourmet has plant-based meal options sorted, launching a new plant-powered Sensational Mince, exclusive to foodservice restaurants. With 42% of Australians actively looking to reduce or exclude animal products from their diet[1] and plant-based alternative meat products becoming more available than ever in Australian restaurants[2], the plant-based mince is sure to please chefs.

The new Harvest Gourmet range will be available for foodservice restaurants in two varieties – Sensational Ground Mince and Sensational Stir Fry Mince. Both varieties are made from non-GMO soy, wheat protein, coconut oil and plant extracts. resulting in a mince that is high in protein and fibre.

For chefs looking to diversify their veggie offerings, the Harvest Gourmet Sensational Ground Mince is akin to beef mince, while Sensational Stir Fry Mince is a delicious substitute for pork or chicken mince. Both versatile and seamless meat-free substitutes allow chefs to get creative and experiment with new plant-based recipes or traditional dishes, no matter the cuisine.

Nestlé Professional Oceania General Manager Scott Stuckmann said: “This latest addition to the Harvest Gourmet range brings together over 30 years of research and development accumulated globally to meet the needs of our customers. The Sensational Mince range provides more menu choices for the out-of-home industry to meet the increasing number of diners looking for plant-based meal options. We aim to offer our customers a delicious and nutritious plant-based dining experience for consumers without compromise.”

Sensational Mince looks, cooks, tastes like regular mince, and can be pan-fried, steamed, baked, or grilled – perfect for Mexican quesadillas or tacos, sizzling pad ka pao, or menu classic Bolognese.


The new Sensational Ground Mince and Stir Fry Mince is designed in a versatile format that can be stir-fried on its own, baked in a lasagne or with spaghetti, steamed in a bun, grilled as a kebab, added to Mexican stye tacos, or boiled in a hot pot.
