Better taste from all whole-food ingredients

Fresher, whole vegetables, grains and legumes. For superior flavor, quality, clean labels and valuable price points.

For all those consumers who consciously choose not to eat meat, Local Alternative Foods offers alternatives made from real whole foods that don’t aspire to resemble or taste like beef, chicken, pork or pepperoni.  They taste great on their own merits. This radically simple choice for great, authentic taste also clears the path to impact – on human health, sustainability for the planet, and 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 water usage and a smaller carbon footprint compared to manufacturers who spend shocking amounts of natural resources as they heavily and chemically process ingredients and then transport them around the world.
