New products to donate 5% of annual net income to planet-focused youth initiatives
SANDPOINT, IDAHO (April 1, 2021) – Green Garden, a 100% employee-owned brand that makes plant-based food products, today announced a new line of non-GMO dressings, dips and mayos. As more people look to incorporate plant-based foods into their diet for health and environmental reasons, Green Garden dressings, dips and mayos are a delicious, dairy-free and gluten-free alternative for everyday meal and snacking occasions.
Total plant-based sales have steadily increased over the past three years. In 2019, plant-based food sales reached an all-time high of $5 billion and grew by 11% signifying growing consumer and retailer appetite for more plant-based food options.
“IRI data shows that plant-based foods are in over half of U.S. households, so we know people are interested in making more plant-based choices throughout the day,” said Krystle Turnbull, Product Manager for Green Garden. “Our goal is to develop delicious plant-based products that consumers can enjoy every day. The new line of dips, dressings and mayos are rooted in flavor and give people more options to choose from, regardless of where they are on their plant-based journey, and without compromising on taste.”
With 81% of consumers prioritizing transparency, the new dressing and mayo packaging includes blockchain technology with a scannable QR code providing consumers access to additional product details, including when, where and which batch lot each dressing and mayo is from.
Green Garden is also committed to giving back to the community. Five percent of annual net income of the dressings, dips and mayos will support planet-focused youth initiatives to educate young adults on ways to be stewards of their communities and planet through activities like cleaning parks and planting trees.
