LAFAYETTE, COLO. — Planterra Foods is expanding its portfolio of plant-based products in the fresh and frozen categories. New offerings include fresh Smokehouse Burgers (2-4 oz patties) and plant-based Ground Turkey (12 oz) and frozen nuggets, plant-based chicken patties and Italian-style meatballs.
"We're continuing to expand the plant-based category by offering family favorites that can easily be introduced into meal routines," said Darcey Macken, chief executive officer of Planterra Foods. "We're thrilled to be adding these new plant-based proteins in the fresh and frozen categories that offer more opportunities for flexitarian consumption through high-quality foods with positive protein solutions."
The fresh plant-based Ground Turkey is the only plant-based turkey in the market today and it packs delicious flavor into ground crumbles with 22g of plant-based protein, according to the company. The fresh Smokehouse Burger offers 19g of complete plant-based protein with the same smoky flavor OZO fans know and love.
Two frozen plant-based chicken products, including Nuggets, with 14g of complete plant-based protein and the plant-based Chicken Patty, with 12g of plant-based protein are breaded to make them extra crispy on the outside, and tender and flavorful on the inside. The frozen plant-based Italian Style Meatballs, with 12g of plant-based protein are made with real tomatoes and onions and 30% less saturated fat than pork meatballs, according to the company.
