Kemptthal ZH – Foodtech start-up Planted has expanded its meat substitute products to include plant-based duck. The new product called planted.duck with East Asian flavors is now available at Coop and Migros. It is said to be significantly more environmentally and climate friendly than its animal equivalent.
Planted has launched a new product, planted.duck, on the shelves of retailers Coop and Migros. The foodtech start-up is thus expanding its portfolio to include purely plant-based duck. Planted.duck consists exclusively of peas, oats and sunflower seeds and is enriched with vitamin B12 through fermentation.
According to a release from Planted, the sweet and spicy planted.duck is inspired by East Asian cuisine and enhanced with hoisin sauce and five-spice blend. It is said to offer both caramelized crispness and tender juiciness.
In addition, Planted highlights the sustainability of the product. According to the data, the planted.duck produces 61 percent less CO2 and requires 59 percent less water than its animal equivalent. “Our goal is to make an animal-meat-free diet effortless, without sacrifice and with all-natural ingredients,” says Planted co-founder Pascal Bieri. “The planted.duck perfectly complements our offer and opens up new culinary possibilities for our customers.” It is available in the online store throughout the DACH region.
The planted.duck tastes “incredibly authentically of duck,” Martin Garcia, head of the Waldmeier Bar in Aarau, is quoted as saying. He uses them in the vegetarian version of the soup with Asian ramen noodles: “We appreciate Planted’s products because they meet our quality standards and allow us to make our customers happy.” ce/mm
