Nutrition House Co., Ltd. is committed to the manufacture of healthy meat free alternatives for the ever-growing health conscious segment of the market. Originally commencing business in 1991 with a restaurant (The Vegetarian Cottage), Nutrition House operation has extended to a total of 5 meat free restaurants and a factory, which produces and distributes its products both nationally and internationally. One restaurant is situated on industrial parks, offering the employees subsidised meat free meals. The remaining 3 restaurants located around Bangkok, are open to the public and offer a wide variety of Thai and European meat free dishes.
Our founder, Teeranard Chokwatana is dedicated to researching a healthy alternative to meat for ethical and health reasons. At 6 years old she first attempted to abstain from eating meat. During a banquet held in her father’s honour, she realised that the meat she was eating came from an animal that she had seen alive the previous day. From that time she would only eat eggs and rice. She secretly adopted this diet, hiding meat from her meals and disposing it later. After a while she would only eat rice, as she noticed blood within the egg shells. However this diet did not provide the necessary nutrients to maintain a healthy body and she became very ill and had to return to a traditional diet.
Some years ago she successfully adopted a non meat diet after experiencing the trauma of watching her mother suffer terribly from cancer. She was convinced that a healthy diet could protect against many chronic diseases. From this time she was determined to find a healthy, nutritionally balanced alternative to meat. Her goal was to create a meat alternative that emulated the texture and taste of meat and contained all the necessary nutrients required to sustain a healthy body, yet did not possess the health risks of meat.
Her research brought her into contact with many renowned doctors and nutritionists whose knowledge and advice enabled her to develop SPA by Teeranard and JV meat alternatives.
Our President and the present management team are attuned to developments in human nutrition and changes in consumer tastes, therefore continued research and development is of the highest priority.
