Nestle-owned Sweet Earth Foods (sweetearthfoods.com), Moss Landing, Calif., launches what it says is the plant-based category’s first-ever vegan bacon burger. A combination of the company’s Benevolent Bacon and Awesome Burger, each non-GMO, grill-ready Awesome Bacon Burger delivers 26 grams of protein. Each 8-ounce package (eight to a case) contains two burgers and carries a $5.99 SRP. Sweet Earth also adds two new flavors to its plant-based sausage lineup, Green Chile Chedd’r and Chik’n Apple, both in four-link, 13-ounce packages. All three new items are shipped frozen, sold refrigerated.
