CHICO, CALIF. — Mooney Farms, producer of sun-dried tomatoes and premium Mediterranean-inspired products, is putting a tomato-forward twist on jerky with the launch of Bella Sun Luci Plant-Based Tomato Jerky.

Containing 80 calories per serving, the jerky bites are non-G.M.O., vegan, gluten-free and kosher. Varieties include hickory smoked and sriracha.

“The vegan population is growing and with it we are bringing forward-thinking foods that appeal to both vegans and non-vegans alike,” said Mary Mooney, owner of Mooney Farms. “We believe bringing sun-dried tomatoes to the snack market in this new and innovative plant-based jerky marks the start of a health trend that’s here to stay. As with all of our products, we’re only using the highest quality ingredients to create a snack that customers will crave without any guilt.”
