Transparency – Nirvana Kitchen provides clear nutrition and ingredient sourcing information for its products so that consumers know what is in their food and where the ingredients come from.
“We are truly passionate about our food. It's what we do.” said Nirvana Kitchen’s founder and CEO, June Zhao, PhD. “No matter what consumers choose, one thing will never change at Nirvana Kitchen: the ingredients are always the finest and the food is always wholesome and nutritious. We are committed to providing our consumers with healthy vegan food that is convenient, tasty, nutritious and transparent on nutrition and ingredient sourcing.”
June Zhao, a Chinese native with a PhD in Food Science from University of California, Davis and 17 years of food industry experience, started Nirvana Kitchen with a humble vision - make eating healthy, plant-based food more enjoyable and convenient for vegan and non-vegan consumers alike.
“Having grown up in China, one of the differences I noticed when I first came to the United States was the food we ate. I was amazed by how much animal based foods (beef, pork, chicken and dairy) were consumed in the United States compared to that in China where meals were mostly vegetables, grains and tofu with some meat for flavoring. Over the years, the differences have narrowed, however healthy, plant-based foods have yet to become a main staple of our diet here,” said Dr. June Zhao.

Nirvana Kitchen meal delivery offers two types of meal plans: Healthy Choice and Vegan Foodies.
Healthy Choice meal plan is designed for those who want to add vegan food to their existing diet for a healthier diet (a flexitarian diet). Healthy Choice meals are lower in calories, higher in fiber and whole grains to deliver the maximum health benefits of vegan food.
Vegan Foodies meal plan is designed for time-crunched vegans who don’t want to sacrifice taste for convenience. Vegan Foodies meals use ingredients like tempeh, tofu and natural dairy or meat substitutes to please the palate and meet the nutritional needs of full time vegans.
The company’s retail line of ready-to-eat vegan cuisine offers consumers with chef prepared, healthy vegan meals at affordable prices.
