Head of R&D
Planterra Foods (JBS USA)
JBS USA wasn’t one of the first companies active in the meat alternatives space, yet the Greeley, Colo., meat and poultry giant (one of the nation’s largest) is on pace to disrupt the category! JBS formed Planterra Foods in Boulder County and invested years of research in food science, consumer insights and packaging in support of OZO™, a new line that debuted just this past April.
Powered by an exclusive proprietary blend of pea and rice protein fermented by shiitake mushrooms, all new OZO products are an excellent source of protein (with up to 22g per serving) and contain no cholesterol and less calories, fat and saturated fat than 80% lean ground beef, as well as leading plant-based protein brands currently in the market.
Listen in as Bryan Clardy, Planterra Foods Head of R&D, discusses the market, consumer insights and science and sizzle behind OZO plant-based proteins.
