I’m looking for a specific product but can’t find it at my supermarket. Why?

Each supermarket determines its own range of meat substitutes. So one store may sell 10 GoodBite products while another sells 15 GoodBite products. If you would like to see a GoodBite product added to the range at your supermarket, ask the butcher or store manager what the possibilities are. Supermarkets are often able and willing to order your desired product.

Why do some GoodBite products contain E numbers?

E numbers, or additives, are substances that enhance foodstuffs. Examples of additives are colouring agents, flavour enhancers and preservatives. Safe additives are assigned an E number by the government. This is a guarantee that the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has checked the substances and considers them to be safe.

GoodBite aims to use as few E numbers as possible in its products. Nowadays, the E numbers that we do use are often found in the filled GoodBite products. This is mainly because E numbers are a common ingredient in sauces.
