We are Caroline and Fred Chautems, a couple partnering in tempeh manufacturing, promotion and abundant consumption.
We believe that tempeh, when made right, can help many of us transition towards a vegan diet, critical to ensuring our communities’ future and preserving ecosystems. With this conviction—and to increase our vegan dining-out options in Lausanne, where we live—we have founded our company in 2015.
We make our tempeh in Champvent, a village in Vaud where Caroline’s grandparents used to own a farm. Among other privileges, we benefit there from exceptional water springing from the Jura Mountains.
Our ambition is to propagate tempeh consumption everywhere in Switzerland, thereby increasing plant-based diets in our country.
