About Harvest Gourmet
What’s the story behind the Harvest Gourmet brand?
The name might be new, but the roots of Harvest Gourmet go back some 30 years. Our food expertise and meat-free mission started in Israel, where, inspired by Middle-Eastern cookery, we embraced the regional Levantine cuisine to create our first meat-free foods. We followed this in 1989 by sharing our meat-free delicacies with Europe and have played an important role in the development of the meat-free market ever since. All while remaining true to our goal to prepare authentic, tasty food and help put veggies at the heart of everyone’s menu.
