Everyone can eat NexVeg

What’s your confidence level in training your servers to handle patron concerns with allergens? You quite reasonably worry about potential liability… Choosing Local Alternative Foods products mean you can more confidently serve diners with sensitivities and allergies.

Our vegetable meat substitutes are always free of:

  • Allergens (soy, wheat, dairy, peanut, tree-nut, eggs, fish, seafood)
  • Animal products
  • Protein isolates or any fractionated or adulterated ingredients
  • GMO ingredients
  • Chemical additives and chemical preservatives
  • Refined sugars or impure oils

For all those consumers who consciously choose not to eat meat, or heavily processed fake meat, Local Alternative Foods offers something different.

NexVeg product lines do not aspire to taste like: beef, chicken, pork or pepperoni.  They taste great on their own merits. However, they are just as versatile and easy to use as ground meat.

This radically simple choice, to lightly process whole foods, clears the path to impact – on human and environmental health and the profitability of your business.

Local Alternative Foods knows that great tasting whole food is the key to true long-term plant-based market share.


Plant-based foods are clearly, indisputably more sustainable than meat. Local Alternative Foods takes plant-based foods the next step forward. Many of our ingredients retain the values of being locally sourced whole foods. Absolutely everything we use as an ingredient is only lightly processed, and never chemically derived. So our agriculture and manufacturing approaches involve significantly lower resource consumption and a smaller carbon footprint compared to manufacturers who spend shocking amounts of resources to heavily and chemically process ingredients and then transport them around the world.
