Happy Thursday. Here are today’s stories. Another food manufacturer looks to be coming out with plant-based food. A new deli is opening in Chicago. Oh, did I mention that it’s a Jewish deli featuring some of your old (pre-vegan) favorites: lox, brisket, matzo ball soup. The vegan sausage that we here in America have been enjoying for some time is now heading fro the UK. I’m sticking my neck out here and will mention that SeaWorld will be offering the Impossible Burger. And speaking of sticking one’s neck out, check out what Moby just did.
Jimmy Dean – Tyson Foods owned Jimmy Dean Foods feels confident that plant-based options from the company are coming. No timeframe was provided.
SeaWorld – SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment announced that it is adding the Impossible™ Burger to menus at all SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Sesame Place and Water Parks (Aquatica, Adventure Island and Water Country USA) across the country.
Vegan Jewish Restaurant in Chicago – Vegan Jewish deli Sam & Gertie’s will open in Chicago on December 5 in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood. The restaurant will feature a deli case filled with plant-based versions of traditional Jewish delicatessen items, including vegan smoked salmon, knishes, latkes, egg and tuna salads, as well as hot sandwiches filled with brisket and schmaltz. The shop will also sell a variety of bagels topped with schmears and cold smoked tomato-based lox, soups such as matzo ball and vegan chicken noodle, and a wide selection of desserts. “The baked goods will rival those of most any bubbe’s: Mandelbrot, babka, rugelach, coffee cakes, black and white cookies, maybe a seven-layer cake and challah,”
Bangers become the latest British favourite to go meat-free – A “healthy” plant-based sausage from the US meat-free brand Beyond Meat will make its UK retail debut in Tesco at the end of September – the second of its products to hit UK supermarket shelves following the launch of its popular “bleeding” burger last year.
Sticking his neck out – Moby gets a tattoo on his neck.
