Little Peckers soy-based chicken-style nuggets
Source of protein. 100% vegan.The Vegetarian Butcher truly rules the roost with our newly hatched Little Peckers - definitely something to crow about! Vegan chicken-style nuggets made from soy, an excellent source of protein. Birds of a feather flock together for this 100% golden brown, guilt-free treat. The chicken in question never saw the light of day, but is everything it's cracked up to be. The chicken nugget was invented in the 1950s by Prof. Robert C. Baker from Cornell University and with our perfect bite and great taste the professor would surely give a giant cluck of approval to our Little Peckers. Just like workhorses were replaced by tractors a hundred years ago, animals will be replaced by sustainable new techniques that produce meat from legumes and grains. All of our ?meat' lessens the impact on the environment of traditional animal agriculture and meat. Go the extra mile with our products by swapping out animal based meat and be much more efficient in the use of land, soy, and fossil fuels. We've created the best and most delicious way to convince meat lovers that meat no longer has to come from animals. So no need to chicken out - let the taste do the talking! Our founder, Jaap Korteweg, a 9th generation Dutch farmer, became a vegetarian after the outbreak of swine flu in the Netherlands in 1998 when he was asked to store the carcasses of millions of dead pigs in his cold storage. He thought about becoming an organic farmer, but couldn't bring himself to slaughter his own animals after they became part of the family over the years. However, he kept craving the taste and texture of meat. So together with producers of vegetable protein, scientists and innovative chefs, his main goal became to develop and produce plant-based meat that is as good as if not better than the original. Now he is bringing them to the UK, in chilled and frozen options! We've created a wide range of plant based proteins, all of which are vegetarian, and more than 70% are vegan with our ambition being to become 100% vegan! In the meantime, we believe that we can have a greater impact sooner if we use today's technology to make meat-free delicious as we develop the technology of the future to become fully vegan. Enjoy as part of a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet.
