Last 2016, a friend of mine introduced Quorn™ to me. When she told me that it’s healthy and meat-free, I had low expectations on how it will taste. But I was really surprised when I tasted it. It has the same taste and texture of meat Since then, I’ve been serving Quorn™ dishes to my family and in my restaurants.

The first time I tried Quorn products was last June on World Meat Free Day. I have to say that it was love at first bite. I decided to create a new Vegetarian Menu for our health food delivery company, The Sexy Chef, using Quorn products. Our customers raved about the food and couldn't believe it was meatless. They expressed that they didn't miss eating meat at all while they were on the plan. The Sexy Chef's Vegetarian Meal Package with Quorn is now a bestseller! Thank you, Quorn, for bringing your amazing product to the Philippines.
