LAFAYETTE, COLO. – Planterra Foods is making its retail debut with the launch of OZO, a line including plant-based burger patties, ground and Mexican-seasoned ground meat alternatives.
OZO’s entire plant-based protein line is non-GMO, soy free and certified vegan by BeVegn. Made with a blend of pea and rice protein fermented by shiitake mushrooms, the new products provide up to 22 grams of protein.
"Our team at Planterra Foods is leading you in the world of plant-based protein with all the flavors and foods you love most, and we are starting this journey with the debut of OZO," said Darcey Macken, chief executive officer of Planterra Foods. "We pride ourselves in being an approachable plant-based brand and OZO is made so simply just like you would make in your own kitchen. We can't wait for people to try OZO for the first time and experience the joy of eating good, nutritious food where taste is paramount. We are focused on feeding future generations and especially those looking to flex the variety of proteins they bring to the table."
The products contain no cholesterol and less calories, fat and saturated fat than 80% lean ground beef, as well as other leading plant-based protein brands currently in the market, according to the company. OZO features a high-quality pea protein that is a good source of iron and has been known to aid in muscle growth, weight loss and heart health. The OZO product line also uses recyclable trays and cartons to store products as well as plant-based ink on all of its packaging.
