After the official launch of Plant Based Week a couple months ago, the number one question we get asked is this: Why are so many plant based brands emerging?
We’ve left you in suspense long enough Zoglo’s fam.
That’s why we’re giving you 3 reasons why plant based brands are emerging!
1) Fast Food Giants For The Win
Run, don't walk, to your nearest fast food restaurant.
Why? Well they have more plant based options on their menus of course!
Once word broke out that plant based food sales have been growing, lots of fast food giants (Like A&W, Pizza Pizza and Burger King have been rushing to add plant based options to their Canadian menus.
When these big franchises hopped on the plant based wave, plant based companies were more than happy to be a part of the limelight and get their products out there in the market!
Although many fast food joints are offering a wider selection of plant based products, why not make our Plant-Based Buffalo Chicken Sliders at home for half the price?!
2) High Consumption = High Demand

Just like the long standing fast food giants, many Canadians are adding plant based meat alternatives to their tables as they are healthier, cheaper and (arguably) tastier!
To accommodate for this spike in demand, more and more plant based brands are cropping up to ensure that they can meet the needs of their customers!
While these aforementioned companies are pretty new to the plant based scene, we at Zoglo's Zoglo’s have been doing this for over 25 years!
With a lot less sodium than most of our competitors, you absolutely must give our 12 Zoglo's Incredible plant based selections a try.
Our products are so good that we’ve been nominated as finalists for the Best New Products of 2021 in the Prepared Meals, Frozen Foods and Appetizer categories at the Retail Council of Canada’s 29th Annual Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards.
Don’t worry folks, we’ll be sure to bring home the gold!

3) Protect the Environment. Protect Oneself
After analyzing new data that reveals the positive impact plant based meals could have on the UK’s greenhouse gas footprint, GREENFORCE ambassador and popular vegan strongman Patrik Baboumian deduced that the modern, meat-heavy diet we find ourselves indulging in has a negative impact on the environment.
Baboumian mentions that if we were to switch just a few of our weekly meals to plant based options, we could help preserve our land, soils and water system.
More than protecting the earth, eating plant based foods has the power to protect our bodies too!
Studies done by the World Cancer Research Fund and Cancer Research UK found that maintaining a vegetarian or vegan diet is associated with the lowest risk of developing cancer (when compared to eating meat and fish).
Eating plant based food is more than a dietary choice, it’s an opportunity for individuals to find a healthier and more eco-friendly way to eat!
It's also about taking baby steps and starting with a plant based meal a week!
