A Bit About Us

Hi, I am Debs the creator of Vince, a wholefood meat alternative that is rethinking the way we produce, distribute and consume food.

Vince originated from a recipe that I started making for my family because I wasn’t happy with the plant based options available.  They were full of overly processed ingredients that I didn’t recognise and didn’t leave me feeling great.  It was not something that I wanted to feed my family. 

I am a proud Northlander and live in Whangarei with my husband, Nigel and 2 daughters Ashley (14) and Olivia (12).  We turned to plant based eating 10 years ago as Olivia was suffering from severe eczema and gastro issues and we hoped a lifestyle change might help her.  We were amazed by the changes we saw not only in her but our whole family.  My friends and family had watched our transformation and wanted to make changes to their lifestyle but were struggling.  As a chef, mother and friend I wanted to help make the transition easier.

Nigel, who works as a Business Analyst for his day job has been a great support and helps me with the number crunching and company vision.

Our hope is that Vince  and our future products will help relieve the stress on the chilled food supply chain which is a major contributor of emissions globally, to reduce waste from the grower right through to the consumer, and reduce the stress that animal agriculture has on our land.
