Planet Based Foods has gained its first retail distribution at New Seasons Market and New Leaf Community Markets.
Shoppers can now find Planet Based Foods' Original Hemp Burger and Green Chili Southwest Burger in the frozen aisle at 26 stores across Northern California, the California Central Coast, Oregon and Washington.
Planet Based Foods' products feature hemp seed as the hero ingredient, along with pea protein and brown rice, to maximize nutrients and fiber with zero waste. The company perfected the taste and texture of its burgers based on real diner feedback at Stout Burgers & Beers restaurants in Southern California, and is now making its hemp-based meat available to West Coast grocery shoppers.
"As a purpose-driven food brand, we're excited to make our retail debut with a certified B-corporation grocer that's aligned with our values around sustainability and healthy communities," said Braelyn Davis, CEO and co-founder, Planet Based Foods. "New Seasons Market and New Leaf Community Market shoppers prioritize products that are good for people and the planet, and our hemp-based burgers will be compelling to customers looking for tasty plant-based options that meet a higher nutritional and environmental standard."
