Quorn Foods creates delicious meat free alternatives that are not only better for our bodies – but better for the planet too.
With a water footprint 10 times lower than beef and a carbon footprint 75% lower than chicken, Quorn ingredients provide a healthy, sustainable source of protein that can feed our growing population sustainably.
With the taste, appearance and texture of meat, Quorn ingredients are perfect if you’re thinking about eating less meat or creating healthier versions of your favourite everyday meals.
Recently there’s been more and more attention on the sustainability of meat production. In response to this, many consumers now want to eat less meat. Our mission is to help consumers eat less meat to contribute towards three global issues around sustainability and health:
With over 7.9bn meals served out of home every year we have a responsibility to help schools, hospitals, restaurants, workplaces, sport and leisure facilities provide a range of dishes that empower consumers to make an informed choice on what they eat. We know that 44% of consumers say there aren’t enough healthy options on menus and we work closely with our customers to support them in creating tempting and recognised dishes, that significantly lower in saturated fat and calories than their meat equivalents.
We’re passionate about educating the next generation and sharing our knowledge with everyone who wants to help create a fitter and healthier population for the future.

Did you know an individual making a change to Quorn mince instead of beef once a week for a year would save enough energy to boil approximately 20,000 kettles…the equivalent to around 1.800 cups of tea each week!
The simple elegance of the Quorn process lies not only in its ability to create protein efficiently, but also in its ability to deliver a taste and texture people enjoy, making it easy to ‘make the change’.
The Quorn Foods range has dozens of different ingredients, including mince, sausages, burgers, and fillets. With Quorn Foods, a healthier, sustainable diet has never been easier.
Small change. Big difference.
With obesity affecting 1 in 4 adults and 1 in 10 children up to the age of 11 in the UK, combatting obesity is a key concern for the NHS. To show how small differences can make a big difference, we worked with NHS Trusts to swap traditional pork sausages for Quorn sausages, or minced beef for Quorn mince, in their hospitals.
