Nestle SA said Wednesday that it has launched a new range of plant-based products in China, and inaugurated its first plant-based production site in Asia in the Chinese city of Tianjin.

The Swiss food-and-beverage giant's Harvest Gourmet brand comprises plant-based versions of meat products such as burgers, sausages, kung pao chicken and pork belly. The range will be available for retail and for out-of-home sales, and responds to growing demand for such products from Chinese consumers, Nestle said.

The Harvest Gourmet range will be produced at Nestle's first plant-based site in Asia in the city of Tianjin. The facility is already operational, the company said. The range joins similar plant-based product brands operated by Nestle in Europe and the U.S.
