Conagra is an unstoppable force within the prepared foods space, and its brand Gardein® is taking innovation to a new level. Recently debuting its collection of new plant-based options, this marks the brand’s first-ever lineup of soups featuring meat alternatives. The meaty taste is delivered with 100 percent vegan ingredients and are sure to warm shoppers on upcoming cold and wintry nights.
"For years, Gardein has been providing delicious foods that deliver the taste of meat in a plant-based offering," said Tim Nangle, Conagra Brands' Vice President and General Manager, Meals and Sides. "With plant-based foods gaining broader acceptance, and with so many popular soups featuring meat on the market, extending Gardein into the soups category was a logical next step for the brand."
According to a press release, the five flavors in the Gardein Soups collection include:
"Whether you've tried Gardein before or are sampling our food for the first time with these soups, we think you'll find the taste and texture delivers an experience like you'd find in a meat-based soup," added Nangle.
Each soup is made with real veggies and vegan broth and are also dairy- and egg-free. All five of the soups are Non-GMO Project Verified and Vegan Action Certified. They contain no artificial preservatives or flavors.
The added benefit to plant-based is the effect on the environment, as following a plant-based diet is shown to reduce one’s carbon footprint, as well as ensuring that a company is using less water, land, and energy resources.
