We’re moving food culture forward, building plant-powered products, and working to raise awareness and inspire change within the food system.
At ZENB (pronounced ZEN-bee) we’re passionately committed to providing a new way of thinking about what plants can do – in our meals, for our bodies, and in the world around us.
Our name comes from the word zenbu (全部) – the Japanese expression for whole. We’ve used this idea to fuel our approach to developing products that embrace the whole plant, whole food experiences, across the whole day.
*Our products carry lots of benefits including that our Yellow Pea Pasta is a source of iron which helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue.
TASTE WHAT PLANTS CAN DO
We’re living in a world where simple can still mean delicious and crave-worthy can be nutritious.
At ZENB, our plant-based products are helping to open a whole new world of flavour and goodness. We’re on a mission to develop delectable offerings that encourage people to infuse more plant-based food options into their diets without sacrificing taste and texture.
We’re moving food culture forward, elevating your food experience every day through the accessible indulgence that a plant-fuelled lifestyle provides.
FEEL WHAT PLANTS CAN DO
Eating healthy shouldn’t involve compromise. What if you could eat food that tasted delicious while being good for you too?
At ZENB, our food offerings deliver exciting and innovative ways to bring out the natural taste of ingredients while keeping as much nutrition and flavour as possible from their plant sources. We’re using more of the whole vegetable and legume to provide an easier way to eat vegetables throughout the day.
We’re constantly working on developing new products that allow us to reveal new flavours that open up new possibilities for enjoying plant-fuelled foods.
SEE WHAT PLANTS CAN DO
Our planet has lots of options to nourish and sustain us. Too often, we only use some of what we grow and get rid of the rest.
At ZENB, our proprietary food development process harnesses the goodness of nature leading to plant-based products with simple ingredients, using as much of the whole plant as possible… skin, seeds, stem, and all.
We’re working to raise awareness of a whole-plant approach, to inspire change within the food system and reduce food waste as we harness everything that nature provides.
ROOTED IN HISTORY
ZENB was founded by the Mizkan Group, which was established over 210 years ago in Japan during the Edo period. Mizkan began with making vinegar using “sake lees”, the by-product of brewing sake which was normally thrown away. The sweetness and flavour of the Mizkan vinegar paired deliciously with sushi, very popular at that time, and many sushi restaurants started using it.
Throughout its history, Mizkan has kept the philosophy of environmental consciousness at the centre of its core values while offering tasty and healthy choices, to become a well-known and respected company.
To further pursue its philosophy and inspired by its food waste history, Mizkan launched ZENB in the US and Japan in 2019, and in the UK in 2020
