Nestle SA (NESN.EB) has a renewed version of its plant-based burger and new vegetarian "minced beef" for Europeans as it stocks its pantry with environmentally-friendly food to meet rising demand.

The French food giant said Friday it has refreshed its Garden Gourmet Incredible Burger seven months after its launch, following customer feedback.

Looking ahead, Nestle's chefs and plant-based food experts are developing "nutritious veggie-centric balls, patties and bites," said Wayne England, head of Nestle's food business.

"This autumn we are launching a next generation that we are sure people will appreciate," he said.
