Selling frozen food online? Don’t forget about the vegans.

  • 15 million people identify as vegan in the U.S. today. And that number keeps growing.
  • Vegans want to make ethical choices for animal welfare.
    • They don’t like how large commercial farms treat animals raised for meat and milk.
    • Because of this, vegans reject all food products made from animals.
    • Also, they avoid all products that animals produce.
    • Instead, they turn to plant-based products.

Like everyone else, vegans need protein. Loads of plant-based proteins are available.

But sometimes, vegans want plant-based white “meat” with the look, texture and taste of chicken. Frozen chicken alternatives fit the bill!
