Speaking in the press release Gert Jan Gombert, commercial director of Vivera said: “We expect a large market potential for our ‘Veggie Quarter Pounder’ due to its superior taste and structure. The smell, taste, and bite can hardly be distinguished from an Aberdeen Angus beef burger. We are convinced that this product will meet a large need. For a growing group of consumers, the benefits of eating less meat is key. British retailers and consumers are on the forefront of adapting high-quality meat alternatives. Reason for us to have our worldwide introduction here. Innovative and high-quality plant-based products can make a significant contribution to a more balanced diet toward more plant-based proteins.
