Traditional Tempeh Block: The image displays Tiba Tempeh's Product: The Traditional Block. The visuals focus on featuring the brand's visuals including an Indonesian-inspired woodblock print design (based upon the key elements of the process behind making tempeh: water, fermentation and banana leaf)

Traditional Block

For superb stir-fries, curries, wraps and more

Good food doesn’t get simpler than this: soybeans, water and our live culture – that’s it. We leave it to gently ferment into nice blocks that you can slice, dice, crumble and add to anything you fancy. Aka, the building blocks to many meals.

This superfood is packed with protein, twice as much as tofu actually, and has a firm and hearty texture. Oh, and the best part? It will take on whatever flavours you dare throw at it. So got on, get throwing!

Our Story

There we were on holiday, minding our own business, when we ate a meal that would change our lives forever. We’d never even heard of tempeh. Soon we’d be hatching a plan to launch our own super-tasty take on this ancient local superfood.
