Kellogg’s Away From Home announced a continued partnership with Sodexo to bring plant-based meats to 3,000 locations including hospitals and schools.
The company will provide Incogmeato™ by MorningStar Farms® Burger Patties to help meet the demand for plant-based foods. The company will launch the program with Sodexo’s healthcare partners and then expand.
“Our Incogmeato lineup is a delicious plant-based solution for Sodexo’s guests who are craving a truly meat-like experience,” said Zach Ramos, General Manager, Kellogg’s Away From Home. “We are proud to offer our operator partners go-to plant-based options that give their guests what they’re craving – especially as consumer demand for just-like-meat products continues to grow.”
MorningStar’s Incogmeato line hit stores in early 2020, with plant-based products including vegan burger patties, Chick’n Tenders, and Chick’n Nuggets.
“We’re excited to expand our partnership with Kellogg’s Away From Home to offer our meat-loving customers a plant-based protein, who want to make more sustainable and plant-based choices without sacrificing what they love about meat,” said Rob Morasco, Senior Director of Culinary Development at Sodexo. “More people are exploring plant-based food options and we’ve seen a growing demand in our industry. Sodexo is committed to a deep understanding of foodservice trends, which allows us to satisfy more of our guests with options that meet consumer demand in an ever-evolving environment. Plant-based meat alternatives also support Sodexo’s carbon reduction goal to reduce operational and supply chain carbon emissions by 34% by 2025, a commitment of our Better Tomorrow 2025 plan.”
The partnership cites statistics about the demand for plant-based options. Two-thirds of Gen Z are interested in plant-based proteins and over half of the surveyed millennials expressed interest.
