In the past year since the vegan JUST Egg was launched, it has taken the world by storm. It has outsold real eggs in certain sectors and has made its way into fast food chains and grocery stores. Now, it’s heading to the largest retailer in the world, Walmart.
While many ethical consumers may be reasonably distrustful of Walmart, this is a huge sign of the progress and evolution of plant-based foods. The JUST Egg may scramble like real eggs, but it’s made of protein from mung beans. Until now, such a product would have been very difficult to find. This opportunity also makes the product more accessible to other people who may otherwise not purchase these kinds of plant-based alternatives.
JUST CEO Josh Tetrick says, “I’m really proud to announce that we’re going to be bringing Just Egg to Walmart because, you know, it’s the biggest retailer in the world, so much more than a vegan thing.” The move is also about sustainability and providing more sustainable alternatives to food choices that are harmful to the environment. One million units of JUST Egg equate to ten million conventional eggs, and it uses 98 percent less water, emits 93 percent less CO2, and uses 96 percent less land.
