Bean Supreme

The original plant food adventurer!

Bean Supreme has been creating plant-based food in New Zealand for more than 30 years, driven by a vision of a world where everyone eats meat free meals regularly for health and the planet.

Founded in 1984 by Paul Johnston – a pioneer of all things vegetarian and one of the first Kiwis to bravely introduce tofu to a meat-loving New Zealand – Bean Supreme was promoting the benefits of a plant-based diet long before the advent of Meatless Mondays, flexitarians and fashionable vegan Instagram celebrities.

Bean Supreme joined the Life Health Foods stable in 2006, forming the basis of our ‘centre of plate’ plant-based offering. Now a well-recognised part of the local food scene, the brand has widened its scope to include tofu sausages, wholefood burgers and mince.

In keeping with Life Health Foods policy, Bean Supreme goes to great lengths to only source Palm oil free ingredients & certified non-genetically modified (non-GM) Soybeans.

It places a great emphasis on community & animal welfare. The brand proudly supports organisations such as the SPCA, Otorohanga Kiwi House and Conservation Volunteers NZ.
