After making its debut in the refrigerated aisle last June with the launch of Ozo, Colorado-based Planterra Foods is adding to its portfolio with the launch of its frozen line offerings. Available now, consumers can add the Ozo Smokehouse Burgers (four-3-oz. patties) and Original Breakfast Sausage (six 1.67-oz. sausages) to their freezer, with more frozen products coming this summer, including plant-based meatballs and plant-based chicken nuggets and patties.  

New Ozo Plant-Based Smokehouse Burgers are fully cooked and ready to heat and eat straight from the freezer. With 65 percent less saturated fat than beef, these burgers are gluten free, complete protein with a smoky flavor.

“Ozo continues to elevate the plant-based food category by listening to our customers’ needs. The launch of the Ozo frozen food line is just another example of how Planterra provides more options to easily introduce meat-free options into your meal routines,” said Darcey Macken, CEO. “This year has changed the way so many of us enjoy and consume our meals. The Ozo expansion into frozen plant-based proteins offers more opportunities for flexitarian consumption through high-quality foods with positive protein solutions. We remain committed to feeding future generations.”

“We’re excited to welcome the Ozo Frozen Line into our stores,” said Season Lawrence, packaged meat category manager for Kroger. “With more consumers looking for plant-based options to add to their everyday meals, this new line of soy-free products brings exciting new innovation to the frozen aisle and more delicious flavor to the full collection of Ozo products.”

The Smokehouse Burger, which is gluten-free with 19g of complete plant-based protein and full of smoky flavor with a hint of sweetness, and the Breakfast Sausages, with 12g of plant-based protein and a hint of spice, offer familiar favorites for consumers to enjoy nutritious, ready-to-heat meals throughout the day. The new frozen line from Ozo will bring unique products utilizing premium, clean ingredients and an innovative fermentation process that makes plant-based protein easily digestible for the body. All of the Ozo products are made with non-GMO ingredients, contain no cholesterol and less calories, fat and saturated fat than 80 percent lean ground beef, as well as other leading plant-based protein brands currently in the market.

Over the next few months, Ozo will be rounding up the new frozen product line with the addition of three items: Ozo Italian Style Plant-Based Meatballs with 21g of protein, and two breaded plant-based chicken products: Ozo Plant-Based Nuggets with 14g of protein and Ozo Plant-Based Chicken Patties with 12g of protein. Both items are covered with a crust that makes them extra crispy on the outside, but super tender and flavorful on the inside. The whole line of Ozo frozen products is vegan certified and made with non-GMO, clean, soy-free ingredients.
