These new OZO™ products offer a spin on plant-based proteins in the categories of chicken, turkey and beef, with bold flavors for delicious meat-free possibilities stored conveniently in the refrigerator and freezer at home. All OZO™ products can be purchased online and found in retailers across the country through the OZO™ store locater.

"We're continuing to expand the plant-based category by offering family favorites that can easily be introduced into meal routines," said Darcey Macken, CEO of Planterra Foods. "We're thrilled to be adding these new plant-based proteins in the fresh and frozen categories that offer more opportunities for flexitarian consumption through high-quality foods with positive protein solutions."

Two frozen plant-based chicken products, including Nuggets, with 14g of complete plant-based protein and the plant-based Chicken Patty, with 12g of plant-based protein are perfectly breaded making them extra crispy on the outside, and super tender and flavorful on the inside. The frozen plant-based Italian Style Meatballs, with 12g of plant-based protein are made with real tomatoes and onions and 30% less saturated fat than pork meatballs. The fresh plant-based Ground Turkey is the only plant-based turkey in the market today and it packs delicious flavor into ground crumbles with 22g of plant-based protein, and the fresh Smokehouse Burger offers 19g of complete plant-based protein with the same delicious smoky flavor OZO™ fans know and love.

These additions to the fresh and frozen line from OZO™ will bring unique products that are good for you and the planet, utilizing premium, clean, soy-free ingredients and an innovative fermentation process that makes plant-based protein easily digestible for the body to support digestive health.
