Sauce brand Prego recently launched its first vegan meat sauce, which is now being shipped for distribution to retailers nationwide. The new Prego+ Plant Protein is a tomato sauce mixed with soy-based vegan meat crumbles and features 4 grams of plant-based protein per serving. “We were inspired to create Prego+ Plant Protein for consumers who are increasingly integrating plant-based foods into their diets to get additional protein,” Steve Siegal, Vice President of Marketing, Meals & Sauces, told VegNews. The sauce has a suggested retail price of $2.99 per 24-ounce jar and was spotted for an affordable $2.09 per jar at supermarket Meijer.
Prego is part of Campbell Soup Company—which also owns soup brand Campbell’s, cookie brand Pepperidge Farms, and salsa brand Pace, among others—and is currently developing additional plant-based products.
