Meatless Farm is featured in the Naked Veggie Cheeseburger meal option for its first week, with many recipes to come including Loaded Sweet Potatoes, Korean Bowls, Skillet Mexican Bowls and more. This represents an exciting step forward in Chefs Plate’s menu innovation and commitment to offering flexitarians more choice and flexibility, with meat-free options to be offered almost weekly.

“This launch with Chefs Plate represents Meatless Farm’s commitment to the Canadian market and providing consumers nationwide with more choice, nutrition and flexibility in their diet,” said Darcy Peters, vice president of sales, Meatless Farm Canada. “Swapping one meal each week for plant-based has proven to make a positive impact on both individuals’ health and the environment.
