COHOES, N.Y. — Plant-based sausage High Peaks brand announced on Jan. 8 that it will launch its product in the United States after seeing the increased demand for meat alternatives.

The meat alternative company plans to introduce four flavors in multiple regions around the country, with plans expand retail locations throughout the year.

The four plant-based sausage flavors include Italian, Sweet Apple, Wild Mushroom and Sunrise Trail Mix.

"We are thrilled to launch our first plant-based sausage as the trend towards meatless diets grows," said founder of High Peaks, Stacie Waters. "Many plant-based sausages lack flavor, and High Peaks was created to offer a satisfying, meat alternative for all diets – from vegan to flexitarian to carnivore – that is truly delicious."

The products are made from white beans, green and red peppers, basil, onions, wild mushrooms, and other simple, real foods, according to the company.
