FiveStar Gourmet Foods partnered with Beyond Meat® to bring more salad protein choices to consumers. FiveStar introduced a new Simply Fresh Taco Salad made with Beyond Meat®, featuring plant-based beef crumbles from Beyond Meat, a leader in plant-based meat. The new 7.5oz complete salad debuted in Publix supermarkets. Available to retailers nationwide starting in January, the salad is just one of the many new product possibilities for the brand.
With 25% more toppings than similar salads in the category and only 260 calories, FiveStar continues to push the boundaries. The Simply Fresh Taco Salad made with Beyond Meat is a premium vegetarian salad featuring Beyond Beef Crumbles alongside fresh and flavorful toppings like fire-roasted corn and roasted red bell peppers with black beans, aged Cheddar and Jack cheeses plus crunchy tri-color tortilla strips—topped with a made-in-house creamy "sweet and spicy" Salsa Ranch Dressing.    
The new Simply Fresh Taco Salad made with Beyond Meat is also "Ultra fresh Sealed", which means consumers can enjoy a longer shelf life. The salad offers a contactless retail experience and is produced in FiveStar's state-of-the-art facilities in California and Florida, which are USDA and SQF Level 3 certified.
