In California, Don Lee Farms, a family food company based in California, launched Organic Plant-Based Raw Burgers. The burger “bleeds” organic beet juice and sizzles on the grill from organic vegetable-based fats just like beef. The breakthrough raw burger, made with beans and seeds, is certified organic, vegan, non-GMO and gluten-free. The burger is free of artificial ingredients or preservatives.
“It’s a burger made with plants, not with science,” said Danny Goodman, Product Development, Don Lee Farms. “As people choose to consume less meat, they expect a burger alternative to be made with simple, wholesome and recognizable ingredients. This is the burger for them.”
For decades, Don Lee Farms has manufactured a variety of vegetarian and plant-based foods served in restaurants and sold to national retail markets, including Costco Wholesale and Whole Foods Markets. Don Lee Farms has been the industry leader in the large-scale manufacturing of burgers since 1982.
