CHICAGO – Fans of Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Dodgers now have double options for their Dodger Dogs. Greenleaf Foods SPC, owner of plant-based brand Field Roast, announced a multi-year partnership with the LA Dodgers to supply the new Field Roast Signature Stadium Dog as the official plant-based Dodger Dog.
The Field Roast Signature Stadium Dog is the first pea protein-based hot dog in North America, according to Greenleaf Foods. It is smoked with maple hardwood chips and offers the same amount of protein per serving as most traditional hot dogs. The plant-based Dodger dog also has no cholesterol or nitrates. Fans can purchase the plant-based Dodger Dog at select concession stands and in the suites at Dodger Stadium.
“Our fans are increasingly looking for high-quality and delicious plant-based options, and we are excited to add Field Roast’s products to our enhanced Dodger Stadium concession lineup,” said Corey Norkin, Dodger vice president, Global Partnerships.
Field Roast’s Signature Stadium Dog can also be found in a six-link pack at major grocery retailers where they will be sold alongside traditional beef dogs.
“The Dodger Dog is one of the most iconic hot dogs in America, so we’re excited to offer a plant-based version that’s just as crave-worthy,” said Dan Curtin, president of Greenleaf Foods. “Field Roast is proud to partner with the Dodger organization to bring the Signature Stadium Dog to Dodger Nation and we know that it will quickly amass its own league of loyal fans.”
Carnivores visiting Dodger Stadium can enjoy a meaty frankfurter made by Vernon, Calif.-based Papa Cantella’s.
