Traditional Southern-style v2tenders have a mouth-watering crispy golden layer topped with tasty southern herbs and spices whilst v2schnitzel is a rustic style, in a crunchy golden crumb sprinkled with delicious herbs and cracked pepper.
The v2tenders come in a 6 pack in at $8, and the v2schnitzel comes in a 2 pack at $8. Both products will be available to shop in early May.
The v2nuggets on the other hand will be available exclusively through food service in the coming months, with more information to come.
For v2food founder and CEO Nick Hazell, this new offering is the latest step towards the company’s goal to develop a global sustainable food system.
“Recent data tells us that 63% of Aussies are now open to buying plant-based meat as long as it tastes good,” he said.
“In order to make a real difference to our planet, we need to create delicious, sustainable alternatives of the foods we love to make the switch easy and tasty for meat lovers.
“We are thrilled to unveil our delicious plant-based chicken products for everyone to enjoy.”
To celebrate the launch of the plant-based chicken range, v2food’s Food Truck will be making a road trip up the East Coast from 18–25 March, giving Aussies the opportunity to have an exclusive first taste of the v2tenders and v2schnitzel.
Starting at Melbourne Street Eatz Festival, then off to the hometown of v2’s factory in Wodonga Square, the truck will pop up in Canberra, Sydney, Newcastle and finish off with a final event in Byron Bay.
