LOS ANGELES (September 1, 2022) – Hungry Planet® announces the launch of the new Spicy Crab Cake Sandwich at Veggie Grill, the nation’s leading destination for creative and craveable plant-based food. The sandwich is available now at all locations across California, Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, and Washington and brings diversity to Veggie Grill’s limited seafood menu.

Customers can enjoy the new Spicy Crab Cake Sandwich ($11.95) on a variety of different bread options and pair it with numerous sides to complete their meal.

“At Veggie Grill, we always strive to innovate and bring you the best the plant-based world has to offer!” says Executive Chef & VP of Culinary, Kajsa Alger, “Our Spicy Crab Cake Sandwich goes beyond your basic fish sticks, showcasing Hungry Planet Crab Cakes with our take on a classic American favorite and touting bold and beloved flavors from our house-made coleslaw to our Bayou-inspired Cajun Devil Sauce.”

Hungry Planet’s wide range of proteins is unique in the plant-based meat category. It is the first and only plant-based meat company to offer nine chef-crafted meat types with a superior nutritional profile, including significant amounts of protein and fiber, with zero saturated fat and fewer calories. As the only company to offer plant-based crab that is a direct 1:1 swap for conventional crab meat, Hungry Planet continues to be a category leader in innovation.

“Hungry Planet delivers on the promise of what plant-based meats should be: authentically delicious, demonstrably healthy, and span across all meat types and global cuisines,” said Todd Boyman, CEO + Co-Founder, “and the introduction of the Spicy Crab Cake Sandwich at Veggie Grill aligns seamlessly with that promise.”
