We recently settled a case over the labeling of our food products.

This was a difficult decision, as we firmly believe the facts are on our side in this matter. But as a business, we must always make judgments that are in the best interests of the company. And after careful consideration, to avoid further distractions, we determined settling was the right course of action.

We take transparency seriously at Quorn. It’s why we have some of the most descriptive labels of any other food product on the market today.

We do this willingly, to ensure consumers understand the ingredients in our products – which have helped millions around the world live healthy by enjoying the great taste of meat in a sustainable way for over 30 years.

We, of course, are always looking to improve on this commitment. Since our inception, we’ve made several enhancements to our labels to further clarify the unique, nutritious, high protein contents in our foods, ensuring consumers have the information they need when choosing our products.

Our business has grown to 16 countries, and we recently celebrated over three billion meals sold. We’re proud of these achievements, and are grateful for the tremendous reception our products have received across the globe.

But we’re just getting started. And our focus will remain where it’s always been -- producing healthy foods that help our environment, an important mission we will continue to advance for decades to come.

The Nutrition and Dietetic Research Group at Imperial College London, led by Prof Gary Frost, today published findings that show QuornTM mycoprotein to reduce energy intake and to improve overall pancreatic function in healthy overweight and obese individuals. These findings suggest that Quorn mycoprotein may be well placed to play a role in the fight against obesity and type-2 diabetes, both public health issues of increasing global concern in developed and developing countries. Dr Jeanne Bottin, the lead researcher who carried out the study commented “Quorn mycoprotein has a unique combination of protein and fibre, which is thought to be the reason behind its beneficial effects on health. Although the precise causal mechanism remains the topic of further research, our results show that Quorn mycoprotein may be a great nutritional asset as part of a healthy lifestyle.”
