Following significant demand for home availability, ‘new-meat’ pioneer Redefine Meat launched within European retail – opening up a new category of chef-endorsed premium-quality plant-based products, now sold directly to consumers. Debuting in the UK and the Netherlands, six diverse new products are available to consumers for order today via UK premium online retail giant Ocado, the Netherlands’s largest retailer, Albert Heijn, and premium Dutch retailer, Crisp.

Eshchar Ben-Shitrit, CEO and Co-Founder of Redefine Meat, commented: “The biggest barriers to mainstream plant-based meat adoption remain product quality and versatility. With our success in food service, we believe we have the ideal mix of product quality and variety to disrupt the retail segment in a big way. Key to achieving this is having the right retail partners, such as Ocado, Albert Heijn and Crisp, who symbolize premium quality products. Together with these incredible partners, we are taking the first step in building a new-meat category in retail and make a significant difference in meat consumption by driving more consumers to high-quality, sustainable food.

“Over the next 12 months, we will continue to aggressively execute our go-to-market strategy to get our products directly into the hands of consumers fastest, including more products, a brand-new chilled products range and expansion into new countries.”

For the first time, consumers can now buy and cook Redefine Meat’s new-meat which has been developed with and endorsed for its comparability to the taste and texture of high-quality animal meat by experts and Michelin-star chefs such as Marco Pierre-White, Ron Blaauw, Alexis Gauthier, and Robin Gill. New-meat, until now only available at 4,000 food-service locations globally, from steakhouses and fine-dining restaurants to hotels and chains, is now moving into retail based on the growing demand from vegans, vegetarians, and meat- lovers alike.

The new-meat retail portfolio fills current quality and versatility gaps in the plant-based category by offering consumers access to four premium-quality minced-based products and two pulled meat products. These include Redefine Beef Mince, Redefine Lamb Kofta Mix, Redefine Premium Burger, Redefine Bratwurst, as well as the company’s unique Redefine Pulled Pork and Redefine Pulled Beef which offer the traditional, melt-in-your mouth taste and texture of slow-cooked pulled animal meat, but cooked in minutes instead of hours.

Each new retail product delivers the same juicy taste and authentic meat-like texture of Redefine Meat’s acclaimed foodservice range for chefs, but in smaller consumer-sized packs and sold straight from the freezer to provide a longer shelf life and significantly reduce waste. The company’s award-winning whole cut range, including flank, will be launched as part of a new chilled product range in supermarkets next year.

Ideal for consumers looking to reduce their consumption of animal meat, new-meat is 100% plant-based, uses sustainably sourced ingredients, and has no cholesterol or GMOs. The range of mince and pulled meats serve a wide range of cooking methods, allowing consumers to easily swap to a plant-based option in any equivalent animal-meat dish they prepare at home. The retail portfolio has been directly influenced and developed based on the feedback of world-renowned chefs, butchers, meat experts, vegetarians, and vegans.

Oliva Small, Buying Manager, Ocado, said: “We’re pleased to be the first retailer in the UK to sell Redefine Meat, offering consumers new versatility and innovation in plant-based meat products. With one of our key missions being to offer our consumers ‘unbeatable choice’, this range was a natural fit with our unrivalled range of premium products.”

Marieke Keijsers, Category Manager at Crisp, added: “In our experience, there are a lot of meat substitutes on the market that don’t meet our ‘flavor’ standard. Our category managers – many of them with a restaurant background or a previous career as a chef – knew about new-meat from high-quality restaurants like Neni, Ron Blauw and Loetje. We were completely blown away by the taste and texture of new-meat. It takes the category of plant-based meat to a whole new level and therefore we’re extremely excited to be the first retailer in the Netherlands to deliver new-meat to consumers.”
