LOS ANGELES – Nomoo has partnered with Nestlé Professional to develop a proprietary line of plant-based products to further streamline operations as the vegan burger franchise expands nationwide. Following months of research and development with the team at Nestlé Professional, nomoo will launch its new pea protein-based, non-GMO, gluten-free burger in October 2022. Additional plant-based product offerings, including a vegan chicken burger and vegan cheese, are also in development.
“Nomoo was born from the idea that fast-food favorites can be 100% plant-based without sacrificing flavor, so it was critical that we not only had the right partner, but also a proprietary, great-tasting, better-for-you product that surpasses rivals Impossible and Beyond Meat. Together, we’ve created the most flavorful plant-based beef patty in the business.”
Other key advantages of the new proprietary line of plant-based products include a significant reduction in labor, lower food cost, less waste, more consistency, improved safety and sanitation and extended shelf-life and storage time.
“Nestlé Professional is committed to plant-based innovation that is crafted in a kitchen and leaves a smaller footprint on our planet—a major reason consumers are choosing more plant-forward meals,” said Perry Miele, President and CEO of Nestlé Professional USA. “We are thrilled to be able to leverage our plant-forward manufacturing expertise and align with nomoo on our vision of bringing nutritious and sustainable products to the out-of-home industry.”
Earlier this year, nomoo partnered with Fransmart.
At nomoo, diners taste the difference with the first bite of the classic nomoo burger, hot chick’n or nomoo wings. Nomoo easily turns into a “habit” restaurant, not just for vegans, but meat-lovers alike.
