Our plant-based brands for meat and fish substitutes
Our plant-based range includes our own YOLO and Délicorn brands with a broad selection of meat alternatives. We also offer various popular brands of plant-based substitute products such as Beyond Burger, Planted, The Green Mountain, and many more.
The Green Mountain stands for zero meat and Swiss authenticity and won the 2021 Swiss vegan newcomer of the year award. The Green Mountain also won the Kassensturz vegan burger test award with the first plant-based burger developed and produced in Switzerland, which it launched in 2019.
Today its range extends beyond burgers and mince to include a variety of other exciting products, such as entirely vegan steak, a vegan chicken breast alternative and a plant-based meatloaf that is super easy to prepare in the oven.
Products by The Green Mountain look, taste and are prepared just like meat – except that they are 100% plant-based. These substitute products are based on peas, an excellent source of fibre with a high protein and Vitamin B12 content.
The Green Mountain products were developed in the Hilcona Taste Factory, a start-up based in Landquart in the canton of Graubünden.
For its meat alternatives, Planted uses only natural ingredients. The great flavour and texture of these products are remarkably similar to meat. An extra dose of Vitamin B12 ensures that they also contain the necessary nutrients.
This young Swiss brand first made waves in 2019 with its innovative “planted Chicken”. This product tastes just like chicken but is actually made from pea protein, pea fibre, sunflower oil and water.
Planted also offers a variety of “pulled” products that will transform gourmet burgers, tacos and wraps into plant-based sensations. Planted’s “pulled” range uses sunflower proteins extracted from the parts of the plant that are not used during oil production. This makes it twice as sustainable.
A young start-up team at ETH Zurich developed the Planted products and now manufactures them in Kemptthal. We were the first supermarket to offer these innovative plant-based products.
Garden Gourmet has offered delicious plant-based products using soya protein since 1986. The varied Garden Gourmet product range includes all kinds of meat alternatives, from burgers and escalopes to nuggets and mince.
The soya protein contained in these plant-based substitute products provide your body with all nine essential amino acids. And many Garden Gourmet products also have a high protein content – without containing any animal protein whatsoever. Rich in vegetables and other plant-based ingredients, these foods also provide plenty of fibre.
YOLO’s motto is: “Just plants, no kiddin' – enjoy life to the max, 100% plant-based”. This young brand of plant-based substitute products is available exclusively in our supermarkets and at coop.ch.
YOLO offers a delicious range of meat substitutes such as cold cuts, sausages and schnitzels, as well as a vegan cream cheese for your plant-based enjoyment at home. Frozen products, sandwiches and ready meals such as pizza and pasta complete the ever-expanding YOLO range.
Since 2006, we have offered a delicious range of meat alternatives under our own-label Délicorn brand. These 30 or so products are based on natural ingredients such as soya, wheat, vegetables and milk proteins. Délicorn offers a wide selection including burgers, strips, mince, escalopes and much more.
The products are extremely tender, juicy and flavoursome, thus providing high-quality alternatives to meat. They are easy to prepare since all products are ready to be pan-fried or grilled.
The Beyond Burger has gained legendary status as the pioneer of plant-based meat alternatives, since it is on a par with meat in terms of flavour, consistency and appearance. It was developed by Californian start-up Beyond Meat.
The Beyond Burger features a similar composition to burgers made from meat: proteins, fat, trace elements and water. 100 g contain 17.6 g of purely plant-based proteins derived from the basic ingredient: peas. In addition, beetroot delivers the meaty red colouring, while coconut oil and potato starch ensure the necessary texture and succulent consistency.
We were the first Swiss retailer to stock the Beyond Burger in our supermarkets.
