Real opportunity for foodservice

Local Alternative Foods products consistently deliver meaningful gross revenue increases for our foodservice clients. The products we produce are additive to typical menus – and don’t eat into the profits from other established items.  We focus all our efforts on bringing new: flexitarian, meat reducing and plant-based market share and profitability in the door.

The meat substitute market has been waiting for this

  • fresher, unadulterated whole-food ingredients
  • non-allergen recipes
  • many flavors
  • nutritional integrity and depth
  • private-label and custom opportunity

At Local Alternative Foods, we put a plant-based protein – that meets Everyone’s standards – at the center of the plate.  The concept of NexVeg™ and our private label Vegetable Meat is one of strategically aggregating opportunity. Alone, any one dietary preference represents a challenging return on investment.  But together, serving everyone seeking non-meat or non-allergen delicious protein, is a booming growth trend within the US food economy.

Local Alternative Foods connects your business with the largest population of meatless diners, ones’ seeking clean labels with:

  • No soy
  • No wheat
  • No gluten
  • No dairy
  • No egg
  • No peanuts
  • No tree nuts
  • No GMOs

And identify their eating behaviour as:

  • Healthy
  • Locavore
  • Foodie
  • Vegan
  • Whole food
  • Plant-based
  • Plant-pure
  • Flexitarian
  • Mediterranean
  • Vegetarian

Whole food plant-based protein is on-trend and differentiated, so you can quickly increase market share and achieve persistently higher gross revenue.


A place on the menu

If you can serve everyone who’s going meatless with the same center-of-the-plate protein, and they come back for more, that’s great business. Our products are versatile, convenient, and easy for your employees to prepare; in fact, they are as easy to use as ground beef.

Local Alternative Foods products are designed for profitability in establishments as varied as hospital cafeterias to fine dining steak houses.

Let us offer creative ways to add variety and value to your menu.

Customizing products to your own brand

Custom flavors, price points, and forms, on-demand, with no minimums, fresh or frozen. On-brand and appetizing.

  • Healthcare institutions can access quality products with custom nutrition profiles.
  • Universities can meet sustainability standards with an easy-to-serve, appetizing, low-cost residential dining burger.
  • Chains can build market share with custom flavor profiles and branded items.
  • Meal kits can differentiate their offering with a new DIY whole-food meat substitute for every season, month or week.

If it’s important to associate your establishment’s brand with premium center-of-plate proteins, the most successful non-meat option could be the one with your private label. Work with Local Alternative Foods for your turnkey solutions.
