New plant-based burgers have been popping up almost every day it seems. From Don Lee Farms’ new organic plant-based burger that has already sold one million patties in just sixty days, to fast-food restaurant White Castle now offering Impossible Sliders, consumers are undeniably opting for plant-based options. Now, there is yet another all-vegan and all-organic company in the mix called Freshiez!

Freshiez plant-based burgers and taco crumbles can already be found in more than 20 stores and restaurants in Maine!

With the plant-based meat market expected to rise to a value of $6.43 billion by 2023, it’s definitely a great time for this company to be entering the space. Beyond the potential economic benefit of the plant-based food market, plant-based burgers and meats have the potential to make a major positive impact on the environment. A recent study found that producing meat substitutes generates around 10 times less greenhouse gas emissions than beef-based products. Considering the major role meat production plays in global Climate change, the more plant-based burgers people eat, the better!
