Food Nation | Our Story

More Plants, On More Plates, For More People.

Founded with a vision of redefining great food, our mission is to get more plants on more plates for the health of people and our planet.

We know our taste buds are our best buds and our toughest critics. So, when we decided to create a range of plant-powered food that is good for the people and the planet, we knew everything had to be irresistible.

At Food Nation we take fresh vegetables, mushrooms, legumes, herbs and spices, and pack them together in joyous harmony. By eating more plants we can do better by our bodies, the environment and our taste buds.

Food Nation, it’s great food for yum and all!

Our Ingredients

Let us introduce you to the team that do the real work. Meet the plants. They bring the nutritional and functional benefits, and combine to make healthy living a mouth watering experience.

Say ‘Hi’ to the mushrooms, with their funny hats, B group vitamins and high levels of selenium. Salute the tiny quinoa seeds full of amino acids and protein. Big-headed broccoli brings home the vitamin K and antioxidants. Gnarly ginger and tumeric are already much loved for their immunity boosting properties.

Our team comes in all shapes, colours and sizes. We don’t think any good quality produce should be treated as excess just because it doesn’t look quite perfect and we do like to take a stalks and all approach.  Full of goodness and flavour, there are so many plants, we can’t list them all but we do hope you love them as much as we do.

We are committed to diversity and believe in the benefits that come from consuming a wide variety of plants.

Food for All

We started this business after thinking about how closely connected our diet and our food systems are. Changing how you eat isn’t as easy as it sounds, so any tasty new products we develop to support a more sustainable approach to our diet, also have to be super easy to use. 

The Food Nation range mirrors how we currently feed our families, with delicious plant-powered versions of minces, sausages, patties, balls and more to come.

Don’t get us wrong, we’re not trying to mimic meat. All the products are about delicious convenience for people of all persuasions, be they omnivore, pescatarian, vegan, vegetarian or flexitarian.

Made in NZ with love and full of fresh New Zealand ingredients, this is food for all. Enjoy!
