Greenleaf Foods, SPC, with its brand Lightlife®, a refrigerated plant-based meat alternative brand, announced that Lightlife’s new plant-based meat line will be available in more than 12,000 retail stores. The new products have begun hitting shelves at Kroger, Publix and Target nationwide.
A recent study by the Plant Based Foods Association and The Good Food Institute showed US retail sales of plant-based foods totaled $4.5 billion during the past year. These sales are driving increased demand for plant-based options in grocery stores across the country.
As demand mounts, so does Lightlife’s success in current retail stores across the US. Since launching its new plant-based meat line earlier this year, Lightlife's brand sales have doubled versus last year at retailers who started carrying the Fresh Line products earlier this summer. Now with new expansion into Target, Kroger and Publix, Lightlife is doubling its current distribution of the new line, which includes its Burger, Ground, Italian Sausage and Bratwurst Sausage products.
Lightlife’s new plant-based meat line delivers the sensory experience consumers crave from traditional meat but are made of plants, without GMOs, gluten, soy and artificial flavors.
The Lightlife Plant-Based Burger, Ground, Italian Sausage and Bratwurst Sausage can also be found in other retail stores across the US., including Acme, Albertsons, Fresh Thyme, Haggen, Jewel, Pavilions, Safeway, Sprouts, Stop & Shop, Vons, Wegmans, and many more.
