Last month, Nestle mentioned their plans to step into the ever-growing vegan meat market with two plant-based burgers. The company shared its plans to launch ‘cook from raw’ plant-based burger patty that will be reportedly good enough to compete with the organic version of beef patty, the company stated in their official statement. Now, as Nestle prepares the launch of the ‘Incredible Burger’ in eight European countries, as per expansion plans, the date for the launch of ‘Awesome Burger’ in the US may be nearing.


Speaking to CNBC, the CEO of Nestle- Mark Schneider told lately that Incredible Burger is as of now available at 1500 outlets across Europe. It includes fast food chain Mc Donald’s as well. He also mentioned that Nestle Plans to increase their vegan offering with time, adding that the company plans to launch their own meat alternative in the US this fall and expand their vegan burger outreach.

As per the plans, Awesome Burger should be hitting the States by this fall and the food maker also plans to retail the vegan burgers in outlets like retail stores, foodservice operators and fast food restaurants. The product will reportedly compliment their existing veggie-centric burgers from their Sweet Earth brand.

Of course, if Nestlé’s offering will be able to tickle the taste buds of the masses, the competition with the market leaders will be tough at the same time exciting. No doubt that the biggest of food makers are keen to enter the vegan bandwagon. What do you think about Nestlé’s new vegan burger launches?
