August 9, 2018 — As a Compassion Over Killing (COK) campaign urging Kraft Heinz to drop dairy from its BOCA Foods brand nears 50,000 signatures, BOCA has just debuted a new one-of-a-kind vegan turkey burger.
Available in retail markets across the country, this new vegan burger joins a growing list of 100% plant-based products from BOCA, including its new vegan falafel bites.
While the brand has continued to make promising steps, cruel dairy remains in the majority of BOCA products.
In 2010, COK successfully persuaded Kraft Heinz to completely remove eggs from its meatless BOCA line, impacting the lives of millions of factory-farmed hens kept in tiny wire cages.
“As consumers increasingly decide that cruelty on their plates just won’t fly, it’s clear that a soaring market will gobble up the new vegan turkey burger from BOCA,” said Laura Cascada, Director of Corporate Outreach for Compassion Over Killing.
“Innovative vegan products are topping food trends and driving sales, especially plant-based milks and cheeses. Now is the time for Kraft Heinz to continue moving its BOCA brand forward by dropping cruel and unhealthy dairy from the product line,” adds Cascada.
In July, actor Kimberly Elise (Diary of a Mad Black Woman, The Manchurian Candidate) joined COK’s campaign by personally penning a letter to the CEO of Kraft Heinz, as one parent to another, writing that families want a healthier and kinder BOCA.
