Franklin Farms introduces a new line of frozen, functional plant-based burgers, called A9ΩTM (Alpha Nine Omega). They’re 100% plant-based, non-GMO, cholesterol free and are made with tofu/soy to provide nine essential amino acid and nutrients, protein, and a great texture. Each easy-to-prepare patty provides 15-17 grams of plant-based protein per 2.5oz patty, more protein content than many other traditional frozen veggie burgers, and are available in a variety of global flavor profiles to fit consumers’ taste.
Franklin Farms new line of A9Ω Plant-Based Patties enter the market as more and more consumers are trying plant-based meat and becoming more educated label readers, considering the ingredients and nutrition panel information when making their plant-based meat brand choice. According to MarketsandMarkets, the plant-based meat market was estimated to be valued at USD 4.3 billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 8.3 billion by 2025. Numerous reports indicate plant-based meat isn’t just for vegetarians. In fact, Nielson research indicates 98% of alternative meat buyers also buy meat, and close to 40% of plant-based shoppers now consider themselves flexitarian.
“We are excited to launch our Franklin Farms A9Ω Plant-Based Burger line,” said Cindy Wong, Vice President of Sales, Franklin Farms. “We chose a name that says it all. Named for the first and last letters in the Greek alphabet, alpha and omega, A9Ω Plant-Based Burgers are made with tofu and packed with the nine essential amino acids our bodies need, from beginning to end. In the past, farmers would use hot irons to brand their cattle with Roman numerals. These days, we’re sparing the cows and putting our mark on delicious plant-based burgers instead. A9Ω also represents the beginning of a new kind of plant-based burger and the end of a search, because now consumers can have a satisfying, delicious high-protein, plant-based burger at home.”
These plant-based burgers contain no preservatives, artificial colors or flavors and are available in a range of great-tasting global flavors including:
- Sriracha Thai Chili
- K.C. (Kansas City) BBQ
- Korean Style BBQ
- Smoked Salsa Chipotle
“Franklin Farms A9Ω Plant-Based Burger is unique, there is nothing like it in the market offering today,” said Wong. “Each package contains four patties, 2.5oz each in colorful boxes that allows retailers to merchandise horizontally on one side, or vertically on the other side. This new product line is now available through our natural food retail partners.”
