Nestlé Announces Digiorno Pizza and Stouffer’s Lasagna With Vegan Meat

Nestlé has announced that it will soon release version of its DiGiorno pizza and Stouffer’s lasagna made with vegan beef.

The new products will feature Awesome Grounds, which is vegan beef (similar to Beyond Burger) formulated by Sweet Earth. Sweet Earth was purchased by Nestlé in 2017.

The DiGiorno Meatless Supreme will feature these grounds along with olives, bell peppers, and onions, while the Souffer’s Meatless Lasagna will also feature Awesome Grounds along with an herb-seasoned tomato sauce. Unfortunately both products will contain non-vegan cheese, making them a vegetarian – and not a vegan – option.

“There’s no denying the current modern food movement is revolutionizing the plant-based space,” says Nestlé Foods Division President John Carmichael said. “By adding Sweet Earth Awesome Grounds to Stouffer’s and DiGiorno offerings, we’re able to offer our customers the chance to incorporate plant-based meals into their diets while still enjoying the same convenience and delicious flavor of brands they know and trust.”

Beginning December 5, customers can win a free sample of the DiGiorno Meatless Supreme or Stouffer’s Meatless Lasagna through the “Try It Meatless” campaign.
