After successfully persuading several major corporations to reduce or eliminate their use of eggs and add vegan options – including Morningstar Farms, Lightlife, and BOCA Foods – Animal Outlook reached out to UK-based Quorn, touted as the world’s number one brand of vegetarian meat alternatives.
Since introducing its products in the U.S. market in 2002, Quorn has become one of the best-selling frozen vegetarian brands in the country. However, all of Quorn’s products were made with eggs – until we contacted them.
After several months of research and development, Quorn recently launched its first-ever vegan product – an all-vegan patty. The new vegan burger will soon be available in more than 1,000 stores from coast to coast including Giant, Shaw’s, Stop & Shop and Whole Foods Market.
And the good news doesn’t stop there. In addition to creating a new vegan item, Animal Outlook’s conversations with Quorn also prompted the company to begin reducing its use of eggs overall.
According to David Wilson, Quorn Foods General Manager:
“The team at Quorn Foods, in cooperation with Animal Outlook, is delighted with the results of the work to reduce egg use in our product range. In addition to using 3 million fewer eggs a year, the new launch of the Quorn ‘egg-free’ vegan burger has been a huge success with our customers. It is without compromise, providing an excellent tasting product, with the texture expected of Quorn products and is completely egg-free. This product alone is expected to save over 500,000 eggs in the next year.”
Quorn’s compassionate decision to use fewer eggs and offer a new vegan patty demonstrates the company’s leadership in bringing healthier and more humane food choices to the marketplace.
