Alt-meat brand Hungry Planet launches free delivery service across the US

Latest News

Hungry Planet is rolling out a free direct-to-doorstep delivery service for its plant-based meats across all parts of the US.

Alt-meat brand Hungry Planet has launched a direct-to-door delivery service for its plant-based meats across the US.

With Veganuary underway and plant-based diets on the rise, Hungry Planet is offering its vegan chicken, beef, Italian sausage, chorizo, pork, beef patties, Southwest chipotle chicken patties and crab cakes for free delivery in all parts of the US, including contiguous locations.

On the brand’s portfolio are “chef-approved, one-to-one swaps for conventional meat”. With its focus on health and nutrition, as well as flavour and texture, it’s marking a huge shift in the plant-based meat industry. Instead of catering to just vegans, the Missouri-based company caters to people following all kinds of diets: carnivores, omnivores, flexitarians and vegetarians. That’s reflected in its staff too, as Hungry Planet’s chief culinary officer is himself not vegan, but aware and curious about the health and environmental benefits of plant-based diets.

The brand’s meats have a shorter ingredient list and less fat (none saturated) than other plant-based meat. After announcing the plant-based meat delivery service, Hungry Planet is also gearing up to launch its ready-to-eat line of alt-meats. Soon to be available in foodservice and retail, this will include its plant-based versions of crispy chicken, grilled chicken strips, grilled diced chicken, pork gyoza, Asian-style meatballs, pre-cooked Italian sausage crumble, and Italian sausage meatballs.

Talking about the delivery service, Hungry Planet’s co-founder and chief purpose officer Jody Boyman said: “We consistently field messages from people who love eating our meats at restaurants serving Hungry Planet, asking how they can get our yummy plant-based meats to cook at home. While we are rapidly adding retail locations, this is the perfect solution for them.”
