Lafayette, Colorado-based Planterra Foods is expanding its portfolio of plant-based products in the fresh and frozen category by launching a variety of new Ozo products.
Available now, consumers can add Ozo Frozen Nuggets (10.6 oz.), plant-based chicken patties (four 2.5-oz. patties) and Italian style meatballs (12 1-oz. meatballs), as well as fresh Smokehouse Burgers (two 4-oz. patties) and plant-based ground turkey (12 oz.) to their plant-based rotation of Ozo meals.
These new Ozo products offer a spin on plant-based proteins in the categories of chicken, turkey and beef. All OZO products can be purchased online and found in retailers across the country through the Ozo store locater.
“We’re continuing to expand the plant-based category by offering family favorites that can easily be introduced into meal routines,” said Darcey Macken, CEO of Planterra Foods. “We’re thrilled to be adding these new plant-based proteins in the fresh and frozen categories that offer more opportunities for flexitarian consumption through high-quality foods with positive protein solutions.”
Two frozen plant-based chicken products, including Ozo Nuggets, with 14g of complete plant-based protein, and the plant-based Ozo Chicken Patty, with 12g of plant-based protein are breaded, making them extra crispy on the outside and tender and flavorful on the inside. The frozen plant-based Ozo Italian Style Meatballs, with 12g of plant-based protein, are made with real tomatoes and onions and 30 percent less saturated fat than pork meatballs.
The fresh plant-based Ozo Ground Turkey is the only plant-based turkey in the market today, and it packs flavor into ground crumbles with 22g of plant-based protein. The fresh Ozo Smokehouse Burger offers 19g of complete plant-based protein with the same smoky flavor Ozo fans know.
These additions to the fresh and frozen line from Ozo utilize premium, clean, soy-free ingredients and an innovative fermentation process that makes plant-based protein easily digestible for the body to support digestive health. The suggested retail price is $5.99-7.99 per unit.
