Keasbey, NJ (October 21, 2019) Shoppers who visit Price Rite Marketplace locations this month will find new plant-based food options from Purdue, Beyond Meat and Pure. The products will hit shelves starting Oct. 21 and include the following:
Perdue Chicken Plus Nuggets, Patties and Tenders
Beyond Meat Burger Patties
Pure Breakfast Patties
“Many of our customers have been asking for these products as an alternative to traditional meat and chicken offerings,” said Jim Dorey, president of Price Rite Marketplace. “We are delighted to bring these high-demand options to shoppers and start filling this growing market segment.”
Beyond Meat Burger is the world’s first plant-based burger that looks, cooks and satisfies like beef without the GMOs, soy or gluten. Pure plant-based breakfast patties are a great source of protein, made with natural flavors and are dairy and gluten free; and Purdue Chicken Plus Nuggets, Patties and Tenders blend cauliflower, chickpeas and plant protein, with each serving equal to one-quarter cup of vegetables. The nuggets, patties and tenders are made with 100% all-natural ingredients, white meat chicken and contain no antibiotics.
“Our customers expect us to deliver incredible values on items they want at prices they love,” noted Dorey. “It’s part of our commitment to bring the best possible shopping experience to residents in the neighborhoods we serve.”
Offering plant-based foods is part of Price Rite Marketplace’s promise to bring new products and special finds to consumers at each of its 59 locations – and it’s not the only change happening at Price Rite Marketplace, where stores are now offering customers a “Fresh New Look, Fresh New Deals, and Fresh New Finds.”
