I would like to think that I have a very good relationship with vegetables and plant-based food. I actually started switching to Flexitarian Diet (you can read my blog here). But I admit that part of the joy of eating is enjoying the look and texture of (meat) food.
If you are a carnivore like me, and planning to transition to plant-based food, meet unMEAT. A product of Century Pacific Food Inc. (CNPF), one of the largest branded food companies in the Philippines, unMEAT is a 100% plant-based meat, made tasty from simple ingredients.
The launch of unMEAT was driven by a growing consumer demand to incorporate healthier food options into their diet, especially given the ongoing pandemic. This is evident in the shift of food trends on social media. Whereas in the past, food aficionados across the globe constantly debated on the best burgers, social media is now filled with discussions on which plant-based burger looks, tastes, smells, and even bleeds like real meat.
I am excited to try unMEAT as I heard a lot of good feedback about the product. It is as delicious as a regular meat patty, with a similar mouth-feel, making it the best meat alternative for those who are planning to make the switch to a healthier, more sustainable diet. Even better, unMEAT is packed with simple but nutritious ingredients. It is a good source of fiber and protein. It’s also cholesterol-free, trans fat-free, egg-free, and dairy-free.
During the launch, Michelin star chef Sau del Rosario who was among the first to sample unMEAT, described it as “the taste is like you got it from the oven. It’s tasty, it’s clean, and it’s very delicious. I would put this in my menu!”
It comes in four variants: Nuggets, Hungarian Sausages, Minced Meat and Burger Patty. CNPF aims to market the range as close to the price of real meat counterparts in keeping with its goal of providing affordable nutrition.
Here are the prices:
unMEAT Giniling 200g Php 135
unMEAT Hungarian Sausage 225g Php 135
unMEAT Nuggets 200g Php 120
unMEAT Burger Patties 226g Php 135

In the Philippines, unMEAT was first introduced through Shakey’s Pizza’s newest offering, the Goood Burger. It has since attracted a small cult following in the few weeks it has top-billed Shakey’s Pizza chain’s foray to burgers.
I love that Century Pacific Food Inc., is giving consumers easy access to healthy and tasty 100% plant-based food options as unMEAT is now available via online shopping platforms, and increasingly in supermarkets and specialty stores nationwide.
We can expect more partnership of CNFP with more restaurants in the country. Additionally, the company’s Global Brands Team has started offering the product to customers across a network of 80 countries such as the USA, Singapore, China and the Middle East giving consumers in many parts of the world easy access to tasty, healthy, and affordable 100% plant-based meat alternative.
