MorningStar Farms® Announces 100% Plant-Based Commitment by 2021 & Introduces Vegan Cheezeburger

MorningStar Farms® announces its commitment to convert their entire portfolio to 100% plant-based by 2021, further increasing the accessibility of great-tasting plant-based offerings and reducing the use of over 300 million eggs annually. This conversion also includes products available to 25,000 restaurants and eating establishments within grades K-12, colleges, universities and hospitals.

“This is a very exciting opportunity for us – by making this change, MorningStar Farms favorites can be enjoyed by even more people at home and on-the-go who strive to add plant-based proteins to their plate,” said Mel Cash, Head of Global Marketing, Plant-Based Protein at Kellogg Company in a statement. “This will also help us further our commitment to a greener world by helping to reduce the water waste, land usage, and carbon emissions associated with egg production.”

Roughly 50% of the portfolio has already been transitioned and that should increase to about 65% by the end of 2019. This includes all Chick’n nuggets and patties, and the Meat Lovers, Veggie Lovers, Falafel and Tex-Mex burgers.

“MorningStar Farms’ decision to make their entire product portfolio 100% plant-based is a huge win for both consumers and the planet,” said Bruce Friedrich, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The Good Food Institute. “MorningStar Farms continues to raise the bar for making delicious plant-based meat accessible to everyone. We commend their leadership and are thrilled to partner with them on this important, forward-thinking commitment.”
