VG Gourmet products: for the perfect vegan BBQ!

Want vegan and healthy products for your barbecue meals this summer? Montreal-based VG Gourmet burger patties and marinated organic tofu from are just what you need!

A local company

VG Gourmet was founded in Montreal in 2015 by Chantal Bekhor and Emmanuel Castiel, partners in business and in life. It was Chantal’s passion and talent for vegan cooking that motivated the couple to quit their respective jobs in education and law to launch their range of vegan burger patties in grocery stores. Avril Supermarché Santé was one of the first retailers to carry VG Gourmet products. This encouraged Chantal and Emmanuel to keep going and to expand their product line. Within a few years, the company went from three to nine products. It now offers four varieties of burger patties (Lentils and Walnut, Mexican 3-bean, Quinoa and chickpea, Sweet potato and black bean), three marinated organic tofu flavours (Ginger Sesame, Greek Gyro, Thai Coconut), beetballs as well as taco and chili crumble.

Quality and taste above all else

En plus d’être végétaliens, les produits VG Gourmet sont sans gluten et sans agent de conservation (puisqu’ils sont surgelés). Faits uniquement d’ingrédients frais de haute qualité – tels les grains, légumineuses, légumes, herbes, etc. –, ils se distinguent par leur source de protéines et de fibres, ainsi que par leur goût relevé. En prime, ils sont déjà marinés et précuits, ce qui simplifie l’heure du repas!
