Greenleaf Foods, the owner of Lightlife and Field Roast, has officially become the exclusive un-breaded, plant-based chicken provider for all Whole Foods Markets

Not only is their plant-based chicken available to purchase at Whole Foods Market, but you can get it in a variety of dishes from its popular hot bar, cold salad bar, and grab-and-go section.

Jitendra Sagili, Chief Research, Development, and Food Technology Officer of Greenleaf Foods, SPC, said, “Whole Foods is known for its high-quality, nutritious, and convenient meal options. And we are excited to work with and launch this innovation to satisfy their customers. This unique, versatile design is the result of collaboration with the Whole Foods Market’s culinary team that has a taste, color, and pull-apart texture that delivers on chicken experience.”

Since Greenleaf Foods is the owner of over 50 plant-based meat products through Lightlife and Field Roast, they are in the perfect position to provide Whole Foods Market with plenty of delicious plant-based options.

Tommy McDonald, the Executive Chef of Greenleaf Foods, SPC, said, “Chicken is the most popular animal protein in the U.S. because it can be used in a wide variety of different dishes. This product performs well in hot or cold food applications. And one of my favorite dishes is the new Whole Foods Market Classic Vegan-Chicken Salad.”

This isn’t the only exciting plant-based product being released. Nestle just released their very own plant-based shrimp called Vrimp, as well as a soy-based egg substitute.
