Costco have sold 1 million vegan burger patties in 60 days, with the ‘breakthrough’ product being made by Don Lee Farms. The Organic Plant Based Raw Burgers have been popular with customers and exceeded expectations.
Donald Goodman, President of Don Lee Farms, said; “Interest in our Organic Plant Based Burger gas just exploded. We are just keeping up with demand and are implementing plans to expand distribution every week.
“The fact that our Organic Plant Based Burger is made with plants and not with science has resonated with people. No one wants to eat a burger hidden with artificial or modified ingredients if they have the choice. They want natural. They want organic. They want real.”
The plant based sector of food continues to rise, with more products becoming available and the market continuing to grow. The rise in veganism has prompted new product developments, with 7 per cent of the UK now identifying as vegan.
