Vegetarian food is hot. For various reasons, more and more people are actively reducing their meat consumption. This brings opportunities, both for the planet and for responsible entrepreneurship! For over30 years, Garden Gourmet has been discovering, developing and producing tasty, vegetarian products based on wheat, soya and vegetables: meat substitutes. All products are 100& vegetarian, some vegan. In the Netherlands, a large part of Albert Heijn’s meat substitute shelf consists of Garden Gourmet products and we have expanded the range of products to other retailers as well!
In addition to the Netherlands, the products are also available in Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden and other countries. We are market leader in the markets and countries in which we operate. The market is growing explosively – so every effort is being made to maintain and further expand our position.

Ik ben vanaf 1 maart 2016 werkzaam bij Nestlé en mijn functie is Paralegal. Het internationale heeft mij altijd getrokken, privé en op werk. Ik vind het ook fijn om voor een bedrijf te werken dat niet alleen oog heeft voor de problematiek in de wereld maar daar ook echt mee aan de slag gaat.
De open werksfeer binnen Nestlé draagt bij aan mijn groei, ik heb alle vrijheid om mijzelf continue te ontwikkelen en buiten mijn comfortzone te treden. Daarnaast zorgt het ‘wij’ gevoel dat Nestlé kent dat ik mij vrij voel om hulp te vragen bij collega’s, om zo samen te leren en groeien.
