Don Lee Farms’ Organic Plant Based Burger will be sold in the meat section of nearly 2,000 Kroger stores.
The company’s burgers are now carried in more than 8,000 retail locations. The burgers will be sold in the meat section at Kroger, Ralphs, Dillons, King Soopers, Fry’s, QFC and Fred Meyer.
“Working with Kroger has been a priority for us in our pursuit to expand to where our customers want us to be,” said Donald Goodman, president of Don Lee Farms. “With the addition of Kroger, we are bringing the fastest growing burger of its kind to nearly 2,000 locations in the United States. With both private label and branded, we are now in over 8,000 retail markets.”
The family-owned food company recently announced distribution in Publix and a global expansion into 15 countries in Europe, South America and the Caribbean.
The organic burgers will be available in Kroger in May and are currently available at Costco Wholesale, Publix, Wegmans, H-E-B, Stater Bros., Tops, Stop & Shop and markets across the U.S.
The Don Lee Farms Organic Plant-Based Burger, made with a handful of organic plant-based ingredients, sizzles on the grill like raw beef, according to the company. The burger is organic, vegan, gluten-free and an excellent source of plant-based protein.
It is the only burger to qualify for USDA’s organic certification.
