Ensemble has launched a new range of plant-based protein products, offering clean, simple, sustainable, and versatile plant-based meals for institutional and commercial catering, retail distribution and the food processing industry.
Ensemble’s products contain just five main ingredients: wheat, chickpeas, sunflower oil, fibre and vegetable stock. The ingredients used are sourced in Europe, with the range being produced in France, taking advantage of the know-how of Tereos — a pioneer in plant-based protein. As such, the products are affordable, at a comparable price with chicken.
According to ProVeg 2021, an international vegetarian organisation, almost half of European consumers have reduced their meat consumption over the past year. To keep pace with this growing progressive trend, Tereos has put all its know-how derived from the processing of agricultural raw materials into developing this new range of plant-based proteins.
Ensemble’s range of tasty and ready-to-use recipes serves the dual objective of being “good for me, good for the planet”. The products are available in original version or are chicken flavoured, and they offer various nutritional benefits (high in proteins, good source of fibre and low in saturated fat).
Guillaume Planque, marketing director of Ensemble, explained: “As a great tasting part of a balanced diet, Ensemble provides a meat-free meal solution with all the desired nutritional benefits. Our expertise in processing the raw materials grown by farmers helps us to promote short distribution channels and reduce our carbon footprint to offer a range of products that are ‘good for the planet’.”
Ensemble products are rated A on the Nutri-score scale are also certified vegan, Kosher, and Halal.
