Gardein Shows Off Meat-Free Protein Products At Sundance Film Festival


Gardein recently took its meat-free protein options to the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, as the company served to the stars a menu of foods—including more than 5,000 of Gardein’s Ultimate Beefless Sliders as well as Seven Grain Crispy Tenders and Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick’n.

Gardein’s menu of meat-free foods is ideal for anyone looking to make healthier choices, the company says. Gardein’s Mandarin Orange Crispy Chick’n provides a source of protein with no trans-fat, dairy or eggs, and one serving of the Seven Grain Crispy Tenders is 100 calories and provides 8g of protein. These items, like all Gardein foods, replace traditional protein in any meal or recipe, and preserve the taste, texture and nutritional value of everyday foods people love to eat, according to the company.

“We know Gardein fans, including many celebrities, are looking to live a healthier lifestyle, and Sundance offered a great opportunity to connect with them in a memorable setting,” said Russell Barnett, VP of marketing for Gardein. “We’re thrilled to sweep the town of Park City off their ‘meat’ during this premiere film festival with the great taste and texture of Gardein.”

Founded in 2006, Gardein (garden + protein) is a line of meat-free foods. Products are available in the produce cooler and freezer aisle at more than 15,000 grocery stores in the U.S.
