While most of the lineup need no introduction, products by Granarolo’s Unconventional Burger have placed 2nd and 5th in this year’s list. Granarolo is one of the biggest food companies in Italy, founded in 1957. The company is traditionally known for meat and dairy though it does have a line in non-dairy drinks and a range of vegan ready meals. In March 2020, during the pandemic, Granarolo debuted the Unconventional Burger, which went on to become one of the five most successful brands for the company within a few months of its launch.
Vikas Garg, Founder and CEO, abillion, says, “The popularity of alternative protein products is growing among people thanks to increasing accessibility. These products are great alternatives, not just for vegans, but for everyone. In fact, 65% of our members are flexitarians and omnivores that are looking to reduce their meat consumption. Our intention with these awards is to celebrate the brands our members love; help others discover these fantastic sustainable and healthy products; and also help keep brands informed about consumer preferences in their market categories. I particularly look forward to the burger awards each year because, well, who doesn’t love a good burger?” abillion dishes out several awards and publishes research papers throughout the year.
