MANILA, Philippines--(BUSINESS WIRE)--UnMEAT, the newest 100% plant-based burger, announces the availability of its plant-based products in the United States. unMEAT burgers, nuggets, sausage and ground meat are available at Seafood City Supermarkets on the West Coast, bringing its unique offerings to residents of Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, and Las Vegas.
unMEAT launches from Century Pacific Group, an established global food brand based in the Philippines with a history of successful global products. Unlike the category’s predecessors, unMEAT offers two distinct differences – plant-based burgers should not cost 30-40% more than traditional meat burgers, and consumers know the ingredients on the label. With these key differentiators, unMEAT aims to make plant-based products and healthier food choices more accessible for Americans. In addition, its broad range of plant-based products, including burgers, nuggets, sausage and ground meat, offers a variety of ways to incorporate plant-based proteins into their daily meals.
UnMEAT is made with plant-based ingredients, with zero cholesterol and trans-fat, while offering a healthy source of protein and fiber. More important, its ingredients simply include soy protein, vegetable oil, onion, wheat, salt, vinegar, and soy sauce.
“The West Coast is a natural place for us to launch unMEAT in the United States, based both on the interest in plant-based products and the Filipino populations in these markets,” says Gregory Banzon, Chief Operating Officer, Century Pacific Group. “We’re proud to partner with Seafood City to offer our range of plant-based products to these communities and look forward to expanding to additional key retailers in the coming months.”
Plant-based food sales in 2020 grew two-times faster than overall food sales in the United States. In addition, studies show that nearly 50% of consumers are flexitarians or individuals who increasingly consume plant-based foods, while still eating animal products in moderation. unMEAT offers an ideal plant-based option for flexitarians, as its flavor profile is approachable for those who still enjoy meat on occasion.
As more consumers become educated on the benefits of choosing plant-based foods, including environmental, animal welfare, and health benefits, consumers are also more knowledgeable regarding the variety of plant-based options available today. UnMEAT delivers these same benefits, with fewer than 10 simple ingredients derived from real food and not synthetic ingredients.
Century Pacific Group is a prominent food and beverage company in more than 80 global markets, with four decades of experience manufacturing protein-rich goods. UnMEAT is available in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Las Vegas at Seafood City Supermarkets. Local residents can order unMEAT’s burgers, nuggets, sausage and ground meat via Seafood City’s online store.
