“We’re excited to introduce the latest additions to our Simple Truth Plant Based collection to provide an expanded selection of affordable, delicious and quality products for our customers who live a vegan, vegetarian or flexitarian lifestyle,” Kroger Chief Merchant Stuart Aitken said. “We look forward to continuing to drive the growth of the plant-based category through our Simple Truth brand, which exceeded $2.5 billion in sales last year, and we anticipate increased interest in our plant-based selection in 2021 and beyond.”
Along with its private-label plant-based products, Kroger stocks a variety of vegan brand name options, including JUST Egg, Beyond Burger, and Impossible Burger—which debuted at 2,000 Kroger locations in August.
