Breaking! The Controversial Company Nestlé Announces The “PB Triple Play” A Meat-Free Burger With Plant-Based Cheese & Bacon

Nestlé debuting first-ever vegan bacon cheeseburger.

Yesterday, Nestle announced that it has developed vegan alternatives to cheese and bacon, designed to complement its existing plant-based burger patties; making it the first food company to produce all three essential elements for a no-compromise plant-based ‘bacon cheeseburger.’

This complete burger solution will be offered in stores starting in 2020.

“More and more consumers are looking for delicious, nutritious and sustainable plant-based options when they dine out. We have now raised the bar by developing a ‘PB triple play’ of ingredients for an all-time classic: the bacon cheeseburger,” Nestlé CEO Mark Schneider said in a statement. “We are continuing to make good on our promise to offer consumers food that is right for them and right for the planet.”

The ‘PB triple play’ is intended to appeal to consumers who want to reduce meat in their diet and switch to plant-based meals more often, or preferably, all of the time.

As per the company, the vegan cheddar cheese alternative has the texture, meltability, and delicious rich taste of dairy cheese. The vegan bacon alternative becomes crispy and chewy when cooked and has the same satisfying flavor.

Both the vegan alternatives to cheese and bacon use a combination of natural ingredients such as plant-based proteins, fibers and oils.

The plant-based ‘bacon cheeseburger’ is also significantly lower in fat and saturated fat, free of cholesterol and has a higher fiber content compared to a standard bacon cheeseburger. Like Nestlé’s existing plant-based offerings, the new products will also have a lower environmental footprint.

The company also offers a variety of vegan burger sauces to create a completely plant-based and delicious burger experience.

The move is part of Nestlé’s efforts to speed up the transformation of its portfolio with innovative, sustainable products. Nestlé recently announced its ambition to achieve zero net greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. This includes offering more plant-based food and beverages.

We hope that Nestlé will also add to their portfolio an anti-deforestation clause to stop the destruction of the lungs of our planet and its endangered species for Palm Oil.

Nestlé has already launched its Sweet Earth Awesome Burger in the United States and its Garden Gourmet Incredible Burger in Europe for retail and food services.

Acquired by Nestlé USA in 2017, Sweet Earth is a leader in the modern food movement with over 60 plant-based products. It was founded in 2012 and has produced eight million pounds of plant-based protein and counting.

Garden Gourmet has a history of more than 30 years in the vegetarian and vegan food market in Europe, and offers a wide range of meat substitutes and veggie-centric meals and ingredients.
