No Evil Foods is a popular plant-based company known for creating delicious vegan meat alternatives like Comrade Cluck “No Chicken,” The Stallion “Italian Sausage,” El Zapatista “Chorizo,” and Pit Boss “Pulled ‘Pork’ BBQ” that are high in protein and low in fat. Although they were only established in 2014, the brand has quickly expanded to huge retailers like Whole Foods, Wegman’s, Ingles, Fresh Market, Earth Fare, and now, Walmart!
Their products will be sold in around 250 Walmart stores in North and South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, Missouri, and Louisiana. Co-founder of No Evil Foods Sadrah Schadel explained the reasoning behind the partnership: “Ninety-one percent of Americans live within 10 miles of a Walmart and the success of our mission is largely based on our ability to provide compromise-free alternatives to everyone.”
As No Evil explained in a recent press release, Schadel and co-founder Mike Woliansky view their entry into the large chain as a real chance to help close the accessibility gap for healthy, plant-based foods. No Evil Foods, which was recently certified as a woman-owned business, describes themselves as a “mission-driven business” with a focus on “impacting environmental sustainability, public health, and animal welfare through better food choices.” They aim “to use food as a force for good because real change starts at the center of your plate.” How very true!
This partnership will help bring more plant-based protein options to the masses, something that is ultimately great for the entire world not only in terms of nutrition but for animal welfare and the environment as well. By providing plant-based meat alternatives in a mega-retailer like Walmart, No Evil Foods is helping bridge the gaps in our broken food system. As the company shared, this entry into Walmart, “also serves as further proof that the demand for plant-based products continues to increase — particularly at large, conventional retailers — a trend many would have viewed as unlikely just several years ago.”
