FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hungry Planet Launches Into 258 Meijer Store Locations Across The Midwest
ST. LOUIS (OCTOBER, 03, 2022) – Hungry Planet is thrilled to announce the launch of its chef-crafted, plant-based ground meats at all 258 Meijer locations across the Midwest in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. Hungry Planet is committed to bringing delicious meats made healthier to vast new demographics, and by expanding its retail offerings into one of the industry’s most well-respected storefronts, it continues to do just that.
At Meijer, Hungry Planet’s three new ground meat offerings, including chicken, beef, and pork, will delight the taste preferences of customers ranging from flexitarian to vegan. “Hungry Planet is proud to now offer our delicious and nutritious plant-based meats at Meijer,” said Rod Masters, Vice President of Retail Sales. “Meijer is a family-owned, Midwest retailer committed to enriching lives in the communities they serve, which aligns closely with our mission.”
Hungry Planet’s growing range of industry-leading meats is unique in the plant-based category. It is the first and only plant-based meat company to offer a full range of chef-crafted meats with a superior nutritional profile, including zero saturated fat, fewer calories, and more protein. Most plant-based meat brands sold in grocery chains focus exclusively on beef and chicken. Hungry Planet offers an exceptional variety of plant-based meats that are a delicious 1:1 swap for conventional meat in any favorite recipe.
Choosing to eat plant-based proteins is a smart choice for personal and planetary health and we’re happy Meijer is joining Hungry Planet on its mission to bend the curve on personal and planetary health.
