Vegan Food Options Walmart Expanding To Include Vegan Pot Pies
Vegan Food Options Walmart – one of the largest grocery store chains across the United States, has announced that they will be stocking – frozen vegan pot pies by plant-based, Alpha Foods. The plan is to have the meatless dishes available by August 2018
Beefy Cheddar, Chik’n Veggie, Pizza, and Buffalo Chik’n are the new flavors available in the line of vegan food options Walmart will be stocking, Alpha Foods confirmed to VegNews. Select Wegmans and Kroger stores will also be stocking the new pies, in June and July respectively.
“Our new delicious line of plant-based pot pies provide consumers a fast, on-the-go option outside of the meat and cheese options typically found in the freezer aisle,” said Loren Wallis, CEO of Alpha Foods. “Our ultimate goal is to appeal to vegans and non-vegans alike and to offer new frozen food alternatives that help support the planet and the creatures on it – both two-legged and four.”
The founders, Loren Wallis and Cole Orobetz said “We firmly believe it should be easy to find the protein you need in the meals you want,” the founders state on the company’s website. “That’s why we are always going for gold when it comes to 100% plant-based meals. Whether you are choosing a meatless life or a meatless Monday, we make food for your lifestyle: easy meals for everyday life that are totally, completely plant-based.”
The Walmart news on their website stated “Even if your target market isn’t vegans or vegetarians,” “you may still have plant-based foods in your assortment that could meet the needs of these consumers.” “What kind of marketing could you do that would get your products in front of folks looking for plant-based foods?”
More Vegan Food Options Walmart
Walmart, while being aware of consumer trends, has been conscious to include more affordable vegan food for customers, with the announcement last year, that they are entering into the meal kit business. Offering up thirty-two dollar kits, that feed a family of four, with options such as Indian Chickpea Tikka Masala, Vietnamese Pho, Ethiopian Spiced Lentils and Teff Bread, or Sichuan Mapo Tofu & Jasmine Rice.
