As of July 29th, 2017, an exciting new vegan alternative to chicken is hitting the shelves in New Zealand!
Sunfed Meats aims to produce New Zealand made products which rival the taste of their animal-reliant counterparts – except without the animal! According to Sunfed, their ‘chicken’ has all the taste and versatility of animal-chicken but without the cruelty of animal agriculture and damaging environmental impacts.
Made from pea protein, their products aren’t only free of animals, but also free of gluten, soy and suitable for vegans! How can these innovative, revolutionary foods be faulted?!
Furthermore, their products are jam packed with essential nutrients such as iron, zinc and protein.

Chicken-free chicken is perfect for people who want to make a plant-based choice for whatever reason but still crave the texture of meat. Considering that the future of sustainable food is plant-based, releasing a product like this to the market now is a wise move by Sunfed Meats.
So where can one buy this chicken-less chicken?
Currently, these ‘meats’ are only available in the beautiful New Zealand, however Sunfed Meats is looking to expand their stockist horizon as they grow!
Residents of Wellington, Auckland, Hamilton, Palmerston North: you’re in luck for a plant-based feast!
New Zealand is really making a huge effort to change their carnivorous culture and in doing so, is leading by example and paving the way to a meat-free future. It’s only a matter of time before other countries follow suit of this small yet stunning, green country.
