MorningStar Farms To Launch Vegan Pork As The Company Goes 100% Plant Based

by | February 13, 2020

Popular food brand MorningStar Farms is getting ready to launch a new meat-free pork product later this year, as the company works towards making its entire line vegan.

MorningStar Farms — which is a division of the Kellogg Company — announced its new Incogmeato range in 2019, featuring plant-based burgers and chicken alternatives.

Incogmeato products will start to hit the shelves in March, with the new soy-based pork set to be added in June. The pork will be available in two flavors — Original Bratwurst and Italian Sausage.

“Flexitarian”

“If you think about it, seasonally, $800 million of meat are consumed in the weeks leading up to the Fourth of July,” said Sara Young, MorningStar Farm’s general manager of plant-based protein.

“So just in time for consumers to have family barbecues and parties, this offers a ‘flexitarian’ a way to serve and cook a full portfolio of plant-based offerings for their family.”

All Incogmeato products will be stocked alongside their meat counterparts in a number of US grocery stores, including Kroger, Meijer, Weis, and certain Safeways locations.
