The Harvest Gourmet Plant-Based Schnitzel will feature in:

Nestlé Professional Oceania General Manager Scott Stuckmann said, “We are excited to bring a classic Aussie menu item, the schnitzel, to plant-based menus with the creative team behind Lord of the Fries. This builds on our experience providing Australians with tasty plant-based food alternatives.”
Executive Director at Lord of the Fries, Arie Nudel, added, “All three menu items were created to hero the delicious Plant-Based Schnitzel while boasting the Lord of the Fries flair for innovative, on-trend creations. We are happy to collaborate with Harvest Gourmet, known for its high quality, tasty plant-based alternatives.”
