Louisville Vegan Jerky Company saw a gap in the plant-based market and used its innovative ideas to fill it. Now, the brand is taking its vegan jerky nationwide with help from its newest partner, Sprouts Farmers Market, rolling out its Toppins’ lineup at stores across the country.
“We’re so excited to announce our partnership with Sprouts Farmers Market,” said Stanley Chase III, Owner and Founder of Louisville Vegan Jerky Company. “The salad topping section in grocery stores is kind of a bummer, especially for vegan options. We’ve noticed a massive white space in the grocery store for bits, toppings, and everything of the sort…we’re really excited to bridge that gap and bring our hand-crafted snacks to the larger community of Sprouts consumers.”
The company’s Toppins’ come in three varieties: Bacon Bits, Pepperoni Bits, and Taco Fiesta Bits. According to a release, they are made with simple, non-GMO-certified, and plant-based ingredients, and make a great addition to pizzas, salads, dips, and on-the-go meals. Not to mention that they are low in fat, contain no cholesterol or trans-fat, and are a good source of vegan protein.
Louisville Vegan Jerky Company’s Toppins’ contain 5–7 g protein, 3–7 g carbs, and up to 2 g of fiber per serving. They will retail for $5.99 per 3 oz bag and will be launching exclusively with Sprouts Farmers Market.
With the plant-based market booming, as retail sales grew 6.2 percent to $7.4 billion in 2021, how will Louisville Vegan Jerky Company continue to play to consumer demand? Stay tuned to Deli Market News for answers.
