Minnesota’s CLO-CLO Vegan Foods, a producer of allergen-friendly foods with a focus on pizza, bowls and plant-based cheese, announces retail distribution of its frozen vegan pizzas across 82 Cub grocery stores, marking the first time its products are available in the Midwest with market share in Minnesota and Illinois.
The line, which rolls out into the frozen pizza section of Cub stores on 8th October, includes: Tuscan Inspired Pizza, Margherita Pizza; Mediterranean Inspired Pizza; Italian Sausage Pizza; Chick’N BBQ Recipe Pizza; and Vegetable-infused Pizza Crusts (2-pack).
The brand’s healthy frozen pizzas are free from egg, soy, dairy, gluten, peanuts, seafood, fish and lupin, and feature cauliflower and sweet potato bases as a replacement for standard, less healthy pizza dough. The cauliflower line launched back in 2020 when Clo-Clo Vegan Foods rebranded from Chloe Vegan Foods.
“We’re pleased to bring our plant-based pizzas and vegetable-infused pizza crusts, including our latest innovation ‘Chick’N BBQ Recipe’ pizza, to Cub customers,” said Wendy Hinnenkamp Co-Founder of CLO-CLO Vegan Foods. “Our success in increasing distribution across the United States demonstrates the consumer appetite for healthy, allergy-friendly food options. We’re ready to line grocery store shelves and get CLO-CLO’s amazing tasting pizzas into homes.”
“CLO-CLO Pizzas appeal to a broad spectrum of Cub consumers from flexitarians, vegetarians, vegans or individuals looking to add more plant-based foods in their diet while supporting local, diverse and women-owned companies,” says Dan Triplett, Vice President, Merchandising, Cub.
