Fenn Foods was the brainchild of Michelin star chef Alejandro Cancino, based at three hatted restaurant Urbane in Brisbane at the time of conception.
Realising that the quality of plant-based food available in a Food Service capacity at the time was subpar, he decided to dip his toe in the waters of food production himself and create the exact kind of products he was looking for.
Starting with a small range of plant-based condiments and cheeses, Fenn Foods was born, and soon branched into a more niche market of plant-based meats – an area that again was highly underutilised at the time. As the business started to grow, Alejandro and his wife Paola, along with their young daughter Lola, took a chance in 2018 and made the decision to move to the Sunshine Coast and focus completely on Fenn Foods. Based on Queensland’s serene Sunshine Coast, the passionate plant-powered family and team behind these delectable products is excited to share its expanding range of flavoursome, umami-rich plant-based meats and more with food-loving people seeking sustainable and appetising alternatives.
A New Era for Plant-Based Meat: vEEF® and Love BUDS™ Unite Under The Aussie Plant Based Co.
October 17th, 2023 – At Fenn Foods, we are thrilled to announce our merger with All G Foods’ plant-based division to form The Aussie Plant Based Co. This landmark move signals a new era for plant-based meat in Australia, as two leading brands, vEEF® and LOVE BUDS™, join forces to capitalise on the accelerating growth of the plant-based meat category.
As more and more Australians choose to consume less meat, our plant-based alternatives have gained popularity due to their enhanced taste and positive impact on the environment. The Aussie Plant Based Co. will focus on both retail and foodservice channels, leveraging our respective strengths to create a diverse and quality range of offerings.
As a founding partner of The Aussie Plant Based Co., we’re confident that by merging with All G Foods, we will capitalise on our complementary strengths and create even more delicious and sustainable plant-based products for our customers to enjoy.
