Consumers continue to seek out cleaner and healthier products as they turn to a more plant-based diet. This trend is not only present while out shopping, but also in foodservice establishments. To help meet this need, Dot Foods is teaming up with Upton’s Naturals, a vegan food manufacturer, to increase the availability of the brand’s popular 100 percent vegan meat alternatives.
“We are excited to welcome Upton’s Naturals to Dot. Our plant-based offering continues to grow, and our partnership will allow us to help make Upton’s Naturals’ products more accessible to our customers in this fast-growing segment of the food industry,” said Rodd Willis, Director of Natural and Specialty at Dot Foods.
With this new partnership, distributors, restaurants, and foodservice customers nationwide in Dot Foods’ network will have access to Upton’s Naturals’ super versatile, clean-ingredient, heat-and-eat meat substitutes for the ever-growing population of people embracing plant-based diets.
According to the release, this partnership gives access to a wide variety of SKUs, including:
“We’re proud of the impact we’ve made by selling our products in retail stores and know that we have just scratched the surface of what we can do with restaurant and foodservice customers,” said Upton’s Naturals’ Founder Dan Staackmann. “We are excited and ready to reach more people willing to embrace a plant-based diet through this partnership with Dot Foods.”
