Due to shifting lifestyles, new generations as well as older adults have become increasingly attracted by healthy food that are good for themselves and the planet. They are more oriented towards plant-based options, considering them an alternative to achieve better health. First time ever, global plant-based food brand HARVEST GOURMET™ under the roof of Nestlé (Thai) Co., Ltd., and DEAN & DELUCA, an iconic gourmet food and beverage brand from New York, have held hands to craft 6 healthy menu options from plant-based ingredients, enhancing options for health enthusiasts and flexitarians, or those wishing to abstain from meat (vegetarian), to enjoy delectability of special picks by the restaurant.
HARVEST GOURMET™ is ready to welcome Thai consumers to the world of plant-based food. The brand has sourced premium-quality ingredients and created delicious dishes that match the taste of all foodies who are looking for meat alternatives.
