Danish plant-based food maker Naturli’ Foods has begun producing alt-meat mince and burgers in Sydney, Australia, in partnership with local company Botany Group

The products – soon to be augmented by an alt-chicken mince – will be sold through mainstream supermarkets and independent retailers across Australia. Naturli says the manufacturing partnership reduces the climate impact of shipping products from Europe to the other end of the world. 

“The decision to produce Naturli’ goods here in Sydney will keep our supply chains local, and will help to future-proof our business,” said Botany Group CEO Anthony Manassen. 

“It also means that Australian consumers can enjoy innovative plant-based products with a smaller carbon footprint”.

The Sydney plant, located at North Rocks, is an entirely vegan manufacturing facility with no animal-based ingredients such as meat, eggs or dairy processed on the site. 

Naturli’s products are currently predominantly based on pea protein. The company was set up in 1988 and produces plant-based foods distributed across Denmark, Sweden, Poland, Germany, the UK and Australia. 

Botany Group has partnered with several international vegan brands to meet local demand within the retail and foodservice sectors.
