Tempeh – 100% Natural Plant Based Meals, By ‘Better Nature.’

Founded in 2018, Better Nature‘s plant-based Tempeh meals – launched this January (in 2023) – inspired by Indonesian cuisine. They’re full of protein and fibre.

Tempeh is a delicious, protein, and fibre-packed Indonesian food – that’s made from cultured soybeans, with a delicious blend of natural oils and spices. The brand has just launched three brand new sizzling flavours to enjoy this summer: Mediterranean, Curry, and BBQ. They can be pan-fried, or baked.

Not only are the products 100% natural and gluten-free, but also, Tempeh will count as 1 of your 5 a day.

In addition to the new Tempeh Pieces, Better Nature is also relaunching its popular Tempeh Smokey Rashers, with a new-and improved-recipe, and new packaging across the range – to showcase its 100% natural, protein credentials. All in all, Better Nature is on a mission to get 500 million people to eat Tempeh as a protein staple by 2030.

The business story started almost 30 years ago. Co-Founder, Driando Ahnan-Winarno – grew up on the Java Island in Indonesia. He enjoyed tempeh almost everyday during his childhood.

As it was such a local staple, that Driando took it for granted – thinking it could be found all over the world.

However, when he started his food science studies at University, he recognised what a unique and extraordinary food it was. Armed with a PhD in Food Science – with a focus on tempeh, Driando launched Better Nature.

With a low carbon footprint, and a Plastic Neutral brand, the business removes as much plastic from nature, as it uses in its packaging. Also, there’s an aim to have a positive impact on people’s lives, by donating 1% of its sales to tackle malnutrition in Indonesia – the home of tempeh.

“For those who are new to tempeh, it’s an easy way to try this super versatile and delicious food, with twice the amount protein of tofu! Also, thanks to its natural culturing process, tempeh is packed with tummy-friendly prebiotics, and it’s 100% natural and wholesome,” said Driando.
