New, globally inspired plant-based protein burritos & entrée bowls available now in frozen aisles
MOSS LANDING, Calif., June 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sweet Earth Foods, an award-winning and rapidly growing plant-based food innovator, today announced the national launch of a selection of eight new burritos and entrée bowls. As the latest additions to Sweet Earth's best-selling product lines, these two new burritos and six new entrée bowls are available now in the frozen aisle of grocery stores, with distribution increasing in the following weeks.
The new burritos and bowls all incorporate plant-based Awesome Grounds or Mindful Chik'n, satisfying cravings for the meaty, juicy taste of traditional meats, and making them a good source of protein. Created with wholesome ingredients like veggies and globally inspired spices, the burritos and bowls are a good source of fiber. The delicious new products are easy to heat up in the microwave or conventional oven, offering consumers quick and flavorful plant-based protein options to fuel on-the-go lifestyles.
"More than ever, today's consumers are looking for plant-based options that are packed with flavor and convenient, especially when it might be harder to find traditional meat products on shelves," said Vice President of Sweet Earth Foods, Jessica Vasisht. "Sweet Earth is meeting this demand by offering new plant-based options that appeal to flexitarians by satisfying cravings of traditional foods, but also provides plant-based nutrition and goodness in an easy, ready-to-heat format."
