At Food Nation, fresh veggies take centre stage. Founded in 2019, this proudly NZ startup is full of fresh, locally sourced ingredients and designed to be truly Food for All.
Their range of Magic Minces, Happy Patties , Super Sausies and Amaze Balls have been recognised globally for their innovative approach to putting delicious, nutritious plant-powered food in the centre of the plate without mimicking meat. Although the formats follow well-known center of the plate dishes, they are unmistakeably full of the fresh vegies their names and ingredient list celebrate! This approach is all about delivering delicious convenience everyone can enjoy.
By eating more plants we can do better by our bodies, the environment, and our taste buds. The Food Nation philosophy is to make products full of fresh vegetables, mushrooms, legumes, herbs and spices, and pack them together in joyous harmony .
The chef-designed range picks up some of the most popular taste trends in kitchens and restaurants with mushroom & hemp Magic Mince, cauli, turmeric & ginger Happy Patties, and the vietnamese, pea & kaffir lime Amaze balls, making it easy to eat well and keep the whole families taste-buds singing.
All the range is certified Gluten Free, Vegan, and vegetarian friendly, it is free from any soy, low in saturated fats and sugar while delivering a good source of fibre and also protein. This has been a conscious effort by the team at Food Nation to provide food that all the whanau can enjoy together.

Crops like Buckwheat, hemp, mushrooms & quinoa. All are gluten free, all offer opportunities for our growers and farmers to diversify their production and support a more sustainable approach to how we feed our families.
