SEATTLE – Greenleaf Foods SPC, the plant-based protein subsidiary for Maple Leaf Foods, announced the expansion of its Field Roast Grain Meat Co. plant-based nuggets into its frozen foods portfolio on May 21.
The nuggets are made from whole food ingredients like roasted garlic, wheat and pea protein. There are 14 grams of protein per serving and no GMOs, soy, artificial ingredients or colors.
“Remember the joy that a chicken nugget could bring you as a kid?” asked Dan Curtin, president of Greenleaf Foods. “We’re bringing that back with an absolutely delicious plant-based nugget that’s easy to prepare, flavorful on its own, yet still stands up to dips and sauces. And they’re not just for kids – adults are going to crave these, too.”
The nuggets are currently available in the frozen aisle at participating Albertson’s, Sobey’s and Price Chopper locations and are expected to start hitting shelves at more retailers this summer. The product will also be coming to foodservice locations.
Maple Leaf Foods launched Greenleaf Foods in October 2018, combining the Field Roast brand it acquired in December 2017 and the Lightlife Foods brand it acquired in March 2017 to create a new plant-based food company.
