Romanian meat alternative brand, Verdino Green Foods, is rolling out a range of plant-based offerings based on pea protein, including sausages, cheeseburger, and veggie ball alternatives.
Specifically, the company is launching six new sausage alternatives, each with different spices and flavours. The Bratwurst and Bratwurst with spinach offering is inspired by German and Austrian cuisine. Verdino has also rolled out breakfast sausages it says are inspired by British gastronomy, Merguez sausages which are popular in France, Salsiccia sausages with Mediterranean spices, and homemade traditional sausages from Romanian and Polish cuisine.
“Consumers started to be more aware of the positive effects of a flexitarian diet and have a more respective attitude towards the planet’s natural resources. Many retailers and restaurants understood that this is the food of the future and became more receptive to our plant-based products,” said Verdino Green Foods CEO Eberhart Raducanu.
“Thus, we decided to expand our portfolio, offering consumers a variety of vegan products to choose from. Verdino products satisfy all taste requirements of consumers, have a valanced calorie content and are a real source of protein and fibre, We are present now in three areas of the store: fresh, ultra-fresh and frozen.”
The new product launch takes Verdino’s vegan SKU count to 52. Its products are sold in major cities around Europe, including Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Groningen, Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, and Zurich. From this year onwards, Verdino’s range is also hitting Great Britain and Germany.
