This morning, Greenleaf Foods announces it has opened a sales channel with Dot Foods, the U.S.’s largest food industry redistributor, to distribute its brands Lightlife Foods and Field Roast around the US from 15th May.
Greenleaf Foods president Dan Curtin stated: “Our brands have earned a loyal fanbase through uncompromising taste and cutting-edge innovation. As more consumers enter the plant-based category, we want to ensure they can find our products everywhere. Dot Foods offers the scale, reach and trusted relationships to help us fulfill that goal.”
Lightlife and Field Roast products will be available to many of Dot Food’s approximate 4,500 distribution customers across foodservice, retail and convenience channels. The partnership offers restaurateurs access to a broader set of options, as exploding interest in plant-based foods continues to impact menus across North America.
Seven Lightlife products will be available through the Dot Foods, including the new Lightlife Burger, Italian Smart Ground, Original Smart Ground, Smokey Tempeh, Organic Soy Tempeh, Smart Dogs (Jumbo), and Gimme Lean Sausage. Eight products from Field Roast will also be available including Apple Sage Sausage, Frankfurter, Italian Sausage, Chao Creamy Original Slices, FieldBurger, Mexican Chipotle Sausage, Porcini Dijon Cutlet and Coconut Breaded Cutlet.
