Burgers are the point of entry to the meat-alternatives category for many consumers; 70% of new buyers make a burger their first purchase1. A great tasting experience is critical, and Gardein has designed the Ultimate Plant-Based Burger to mimic the taste of real beef, with no soy ingredients and no GMOs.

"If you're going to be a leader in meatless meals, serving a great-tasting burger is a must," said Tara Rozalowsky, VP/GM for Gardein. "We're incredibly proud of the delicious, meaty taste of our new Gardein Ultimate Plant-Based Burger, and we can't wait for consumers to fire up the grill and enjoy their first bite." 

Whether you adhere to a vegan or vegetarian diet, or simply want to add some meat-free alternatives to your diet, the Gardein Ultimate Plant-Based Burger has earned its spot on any cookout menu. Made from pea protein, the Gardein Ultimate Plant-Based Burger is a good source of protein, with 19 grams per serving. Weighing in at 4 oz., the delicious patties are ready for all your favorite toppings.

The Ultimate Plant-Based Burger is the latest addition to Gardein's menu of plant-based alternatives to meat and fish. With a passion for chef-inspired food, Gardein believes those seeking plant-based meals shouldn't have to settle for a limited menu. Gardein's offerings include Meatless Meatballs, Chick'n Tenders, Crabless Cakes and more.

The Gardein Ultimate Plant-Based burger will be sold in the freezer sections of grocery stores and mass retailers nationwide. A six-pack will be available for a MSRP of $12.99, while a two-pack will be sold for $4.49.
