Before the Butcher, a manufacturer of plant-based burgers, grounds and other unique plant-based proteins such as chicken and sausage, has launched a new product line that is sure to please even the most ardent meat lover. Their kitchen cooked up an amazing Plant-based Pepperoni that offers all the flavor and texture of classic pepperoni, without meat.

This amazing Pepperoni is gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO, dairy-free, cholesterol-free, hormone-free, and antibiotic-free, making it perfect for people who are health conscious or have dietary restrictions.  

The National Restaurant Association Food & Beverage Award (FABI) named the Plant-based Pepperoni as a 2023 award recipient, which will be celebrated during the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago. 

The Plant-Based Pepperoni is made from natural ingredients and uses a proprietary pea protein, radish extract, paprika and other spices to give the pepperoni a hint of spice that captures the flavor profile matching the best meat-based pepperoni from around the world.

"Our new plant-based pepperoni offers an amazing taste experience that mimics real pepperoni so well, it would fool even the most sophisticated palate. We understand that consumers are looking for delicious, healthier, and more sustainable alternatives to animal protein. That's why we're thrilled to offer a product that fits this market need and delivers a great taste without any compromise,” said Danny O'Malley, founder and president of Before the Butcher.

The Plant-based Pepperoni is incredibly versatile and can be used in a wide range of dishes. It can be added to pizza, sandwiches, or salad. It’s also great for meatless pizza programs at school, home, work, or healthcare facilities.
