Burgers are the point of entry to the meat-alternatives category for many consumers; 70% of new buyers make a burger their first purchase1. A great tasting experience is critical, and Gardein has designed the Ultimate Plant-Based Burger to mimic the taste of real beef, with no soy ingredients and no GMOs.

"If you're going to be a leader in meatless meals, serving a great-tasting burger is a must," said Tara Rozalowsky, VP/GM for Gardein. "We're incredibly proud of the delicious, meaty taste of our new Gardein Ultimate Plant-Based Burger, and we can't wait for consumers to fire up the grill and enjoy their first bite."?

Whether you adhere to a vegan or vegetarian diet, or simply want to add some meat-free alternatives to your diet, the Gardein Ultimate Plant-Based Burger has earned its spot on any cookout menu.

Weighing in at 4 oz., the delicious patties are ready for all your favorite toppings.

The Ultimate Plant-Based Burger is the latest addition to Gardein's menu of plant-based alternatives to meat and fish.
