V2Food set to expand into alt-chicken market

(Source: Supplied)

Plant-based foods company V2Food has expanded its range with the addition of crumbed alt-chicken varieties. 

The products are available in three different assortments: tenders, nuggets and schnitzels, all made locally without artificial flavours or colours.

The plant-based meat market is gaining a lot of traction in Australia with recent data suggesting that 63 per cent of Australians are open to buying plant-based products if it tastes good.

Nick Hazell, CEO and founder of V2Food said the company’s mission is to help the global population live more sustainably by providing plant-based products that taste great and are easy to cook. So a chicken range was always on the cards for V2Food.

Starting from the Melbourne Street Eatz Festival, V2Food’s Food Truck will make a road trip along the East Coast from March 18–25 stopping at Canberra, Sydney, Newcastle and Byron Bay, letting consumers take a taste of the new products from the truck.

The V2Tenders are available in a six-pack and retail at $8 and the V2Schnitzel come in two packs selling at $8. V2Nuggets will retail exclusively through foodservice channels across Australia from early May.
