It’s the biggest show in the west, when it comes to food – Natural Products Expo West. Gardein went home a winner, after being named Best of Show by VegNews magazine!

Gardein had a smorgasbord of samples, with the just-released Meatless Pepperoni Pizza Pocket and a sneak peek of the brand new Skillet Meals. Expo West attendees were treated to the Italian Rigatoni with meatless Italian sausage, and the Asian Chick’n Fried Rice, which will both be available this fall.

But the new breakfast pockets were the stand-out star at Expo West winning VegNews Magazine’s Best in Show Award for Best New Vegan Product! These pockets are a tasty mix of “savory gardein breakfast sausage crumbles, vegan egg and cheese all wrapped in a crispy golden bun,” to use Chef Jason’s words. They were a crowd favorite, with people lining up around the block, including YouTube Star Kalel Kitten.
