Plant-based meat brand Sgaia Foods has secured shelf space in all Whole Foods stores across the UK.

The vegan food producer, which is based in Renfrewshire, Scotland, now has more than 50 stockists - and it is also exporting to New Zealand.

Founded by Hilary Masin and Alberto Casotto, the company is currently supplying its 'Mheat' products to retailers including Roots and Fruits.


The Italian pair are hoping to encourage more people to drop animal products from their diet.

Masin told the Herald Scotland: "Our food business was launched in order to promote plant-based living where meat, cheese and milk are made vegan to support those in search for tasty, animal-free foods. 

"We believe we have also created something that resonates with people who haven’t connected to plant-based living yet."


Sgaia Foods has plant-based steaks on offer, as well as burgers, rashers, cheese, and charcuterie packs.

The company has also developed vegan poached eggs, which were awarded Best Innovative Vegan Product by PETA - and will be available from next year.

Masin added: "Our Scottish customers have literally propelled us to a whole new world. We’ve gone from making these products in our kitchen at home, to having three units in an industrial complex in Paisley.

"We’ve sent pallets to New Zealand and we’re stocked widely across the UK including in some prominent London retailers.

"We’re also working with some great restaurants partners to bring our Mheat onto as many plates as we can."
