THIS™ was set up by ex-meat lovers, Andy Shovel and Pete Sharman, who successfully exited beef burger chain Chosen Bun. They channeled their in-depth knowledge of meat to create arguably the most realistic chicken and pork meat-alternatives in the world, which have won numerous awards (including Indie Best, Great Taste, Grocer Gold). THIS™ mimics meat in taste, texture, appearance and versatility, but without the ethical or environmental impact, instead using peas and soya beans as the base.
