Plant-based producer The Meatless Farm Co has teamed up with Orchard Pig to create the ‘Porkie Burger’.
The meatless pork and apple burger was developed by both companies’ R&D teams to ‘perfectly pair’ with Orchard Pig’s vegan certified beverage.
According to the partnership, the burger looks and tastes like pork with a ‘spicy sweet kick’. The Porkie Burger is formulated from The Meatless Farm Co’s plant-based sausages – made from pea, soya and rice proteins – and is being served with a cider-infused apple & chilli jam and vegan cheese at Orchard Pig’s meat-free kitchen pop-ups in London and Bristol this month.
“It’s more important than ever that we are working together to reduce our meat consumption, it’s positive for our health and the planet,” said founder of the Meatless Farm Co Morten Toft-Bech. “If we can all make simple swaps, like opting for this Porkie Burger, then collectively we can have a huge impact.
“Swapping just one more meat meal to plant-based a week reduces the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions by 8.4% - the equivalent of taking 16 million cars off the road.”
Orchard Pig’s Zoe Atkinson said the cider producer was ‘thrilled’ to partner with the plant-based producer. “And we think you’ll be happy as a pig in mud with the delicious result.”
