Leader in all-natural, plant-based proteins showcases expanded product lineups
Atlantic Natural Foods – a world leader in shelf-stable, sustainable, plant-based protein sources – is excited to exhibit new products from its Loma Linda® and Neat® brands at Expo East 2017. Loma Linda, one of the oldest vegetarian food brands in the world, has recently undergone a rebranding with a new, clean look and label – as well as its new meal solutions line. Both of those introductions have been met with high demand from retailers, motivated to bring excitement back to the center store. Neat, which offers 100% all-natural, vegan, gluten and soy-free foods to consumers who are looking to reduce or eliminate animal-based proteins from their diets, is launching new all-in-one meat replacements and new baking items.
“Atlantic Natural Foods is proud to offer great-tasting, healthy choices for anyone looking for nutritious, wholesome meals,” said Doug Hines, chairman and general partner of Atlantic Natural Foods. “Whether you’re a mom or a millennial, a vegan or a vegetarian or simply a ‘flexitarian’ looking to lead a healthier lifestyle, we’re creating delicious meatless options – including our new options from Loma Linda and Neat – that are sure to please. The world is changing rapidly, and we are excited to address those changes with our latest innovations.”
The Loma Linda brand, which has been providing plant-based protein products since 1890, is proud to showcase its new line of Loma Linda Blue meal solutions – nutritionally balanced, non-GMO, ready-to-eat vegetarian meals that take inspiration from signature dishes across the globe. Inspired by the health-conscious community of Loma Linda, California – one of the five “Blue Zones” where people live longer than anywhere else – the brand aims to share the virtues of clean, plant-based eating with people all over the world. That means choosing foods that don’t compromise natural resources; foods made with simple, nutrient-rich ingredients – non-GMO, vegetarian and vegan, and gluten free when possible.
Loma Linda Blue’s deliciously modern options are low in fat and cholesterol and for added convenience, are packed in shelf-stable, easy to grab-on-the-go, individual microwavable pouches. The new meal solutions are made for today’s sophisticated, conscientious consumer and are inclusive of the following varieties:
