Last week, the company had the opportunity to sponsor a Dominican Heritage event hosted by Gracie Mansion, the residence of NYC Mayor Eric Adams. The event had 1,600 guests and was the largest heritage event this year.

“It’s an honor to work with the New York City Mayor’s Office on sponsoring this incredible event,” said Liron Nimrodi, Zero Egg’s CEO & Co-Founder. “We like to say that Zero Egg is the egg for everyone, and this vibrant celebration of Dominican heritage is a testament to that. Regardless of your diet, Zero Egg offers the same taste and texture of ordinary eggs that consumers are looking for, while also bringing a new level of ease and versatility to the plant-based egg space that chefs love.”

The event was completely vegan, and animal product free featured a full menu of dishes made with Zero Egg. Vegconomist reported that the vegan event featured veganized versions of traditional Dominican cuisine featuring tostones, maduros, gazpacho, and revuelto de hueve con yucca frita. Adams is the first mayor in NYC history to host an entirely plant-based event at the Gracie Mansion.

“I’m super impressed with Zero Egg,” said Joseph Simon, Chef at Gracie Mansion. “It acts like a regular egg. It tastes like a regular egg. I’m not the biggest fan of plant-based stuff, but this stuff impresses me. Zero Egg is awesome.”

More than 300 million egg-laying hens are living on farms across the U.S. These poor animals will suffer greatly during their short lives before being sent to slaughter. Chickens are highly intelligent, sentient beings, and keeping them in these conditions is extremely cruel. You might think that purchasing “free-range” or “cage-free” eggs is a solution, but it’s not. Check out Think You Know ‘Free-Range’ and ‘Cage Free’ Chicken? Think Again.

Thankfully, there are many chicken and egg substitutes that are not only delicious but free of all cruelty to animals. When you have a truly better option… why bother with anything else?
