MamaMancini’s Holdings, Inc., a marketer of specialty pre-prepared, frozen and refrigerated all-natural food products, has partnered with Beyond Meat. Its new line of fully cooked Italian foods featuring Beyond Beef is available immediately in several markets throughout the US.
The new products include “Beyond Beef Meatballs & Sauce” in several sizes, and vegan & gluten-free based “Spaghetti and Beyond Beef Meatball Pasta Bowls.”
Currently, MamaMancini’s products are sold in over 45,000 locations nationwide, including major grocery store chains Walmart, Kroger, Publix, Costco, and Albertsons. Its products are also offered by national distributors such as Sysco and United Natural Foods. MamaMancini’s items are also frequently available through the world’s largest direct to consumer marketer, QVC.
“Plant-based meat is one of the fastest-growing trends in the food industry, and Beyond Meat is leading the revolution,” said Carl Wolf, Chairman, and CEO of MamaMancini’s Holdings. “Beyond Beef was the perfect choice for our new bowls as it offers the same juicy, meaty texture as beef, with the benefits of plant-based proteins. Our partnership will expand our current line of healthy products and enable us to penetrate new markets with customers looking to expand their protein options.”
“We are looking forward to the new products MamaMancini’s is creating that include our delicious plant-based proteins,” said Tim Smith, Beyond Meat’s VP of Foodservice Sales, North America. “Their large distribution network will help deliver Beyond Meat’s product into homes across the country, allowing customers to experience the appeal and taste of iconic Italian food with a more sustainable alternative ingredient.”
