Real Vegetable Meat


In 2011 we answered an open call-out from a locally focused grass-fed burger joint.  They wanted a burger for non-meat eaters that met their values.  Local Alternative Foods answered that call and invented the Tepa® brand products.  We met all their requirements for a better veggie burger.  It used locally sourced, whole food, plant forward, sustainable ingredients.  While our foodservice clients loved the product made from heirloom indigenous Tepary Beans, they still asked for more.  Retiring Tepa while maintaining local values, Local Alternative Foods  Vegetable Meats bring all the inherent health and environmental benefits of delicious pure whole-food plant-based complete protein to the center of plate.  Check out the Arizona California locally sourced Vegetable Meat at
