Vegan JUST Egg To Hit Cafeterias Across The US

by | February 7, 2020

Plant-based company JUST has teamed up with Sodexo — a global food services provider — to launch its vegan egg substitute in cafeterias across the US.

The egg alternative will soon be available at colleges, workplaces, and healthcare facilities that are managed by Sodexo.

“We’re thrilled to become a preferred supplier to Sodexo, which serves over 75 million consumers each day,” said Josh Tetrick, co-founder and CEO of JUST.

JUST Egg is made from mung beans and is similar in appearance, texture, and taste to scrambled egg.

Comparatively to eggs from chickens, JUST Egg ingredients require “98 percent less water, 83 percent less land and emit 93 percent less CO2e.”

“Consumers are looking for plant-based items that mimic the foods that they are either not eating any longer or trying to eat less of – for whatever reason,” said Rob Morasco, senior director of culinary development at Sodexo.

“Environmental Sustainability”

“Be it wellness, animal welfare or environmental sustainability. JUST Egg products are nearly indistinguishable from their ‘real’ counterparts – they taste like eggs, cook like eggs and can bake like eggs.”

Sodexo is aiming to reduce its carbon emissions by 34 percent by 2025, and plans to do so by reducing waste, promoting plant-based food, increasing the amount of locally sourced products, and embracing innovative energy solutions.
