Expansions are in the cards for Planterra Foods as the Colorado company brings its first True Bite™ Plant-Based Chicken Cutlet and new Plant-Based Chicken Shreds to the market. These new products will hit shelves and shoppers’ carts nationwide under the OZO™ brand.
“As time goes on, the demand for protein will only continue to increase, and the world won’t be able to satisfy that demand with meat-based products alone,” said Darcey Macken, Planterra Foods Chief Executive Officer. “With chicken being the most popular protein in the United States, it was clear we needed to create a plant-based option where people don’t have to sacrifice this mealtime favorite and have a more sustainable option. Planterra is always aiming to provide delicious, sustainable solutions that are good for people and the planet, and our True Bite Chicken Cutlets and Shreds will do just that.”
Shoppers won’t be missing out on the experience of real chicken, as the True Bite Chicken Cutlet and Shreds are comparable to real, whole muscle chicken, noted the release. Planterra True Bite Chicken Cutlets and Shreds are innovative as they have the same whole muscle look, texture, taste, and feel as their meat counterpart while remaining 100 percent plant-based, vegan, and non-GMO.
Found in the fresh meat aisle, the Cutlets and Shreds are also packed with protein, with more fiber and less fat than traditional meat sources. Both chicken products are pre-seasoned and ready to cook in just 10 minutes, so people have a simple, quick mealtime option they can feel good about feeding to their families.
OZO’s plant-based chicken products will be available in four delicious seasoning options: Garlic & Herb Cutlet, Sea Salt & Pepper Cutlet, BBQ Shreds, and Rotisserie-style Shreds. These vegan and plant-based protein options will hit grocery store shelves nationwide in early 2022 and can be found in the fresh meat aisle.
Additional plant-based protein offerings from OZO include: Ground (12 oz), Mexican-Seasoned Ground (12 oz), Original Breakfast Sausages (4 patties per package), Italian Style Meatballs (12 per package), Frozen Smokehouse Burgers, Frozen Plant-Based Breakfast Sausages, and Frozen Plant-Based Chicken Nuggets.
