FoodBev reports that the entry of Veggies Made Great Sausage, Egg & Cheese Frittata made with Beyond Meat® is among some of the strongest competition. Here are some of the 5* reviews received from the judging panel
Marc Matsumoto: “The world needs more tasty ready-to-eat plant-based products, and this actually looks like something I’d want to eat. Plus, the collaboration with an established plant-based meat brand is brilliant!”

Veggies Made Great is a plant-based company that creatively combines clean and simple ingredients to create a remarkably delicious line of veggie-rich prepared foods for everyday snacks and meals. The amazingly convenient and frozen line of products are gluten-free, soy-free, peanut and tree nut-free (with many dairy-free options) and always made with veggies as the first ingredient.
The company has partnered with Beyond Meat®, the leader in plant-based proteins, to deliver a new Veggies Made Great Frittata Line made with Beyond Meat®. This marks the first ever plant-based partnership for Veggies Made Great, a collaboration that brings together the future of plant protein: plant-based meat alternatives and veggie-packed, plant-based products.
The new Veggies Made Great Frittatas made with Beyond Meat® includes two exciting flavors:
- Veggies Made Great Sausage & Pepper Frittata made with Beyond Meat®
- Veggies Made Great Sausage, Egg & Cheese Frittata made with Beyond Meat®
The partnership between Veggies Made Great and Beyond Meat® is a unique example of food innovation, where plant-based culinary and plant-based science finally meet. According to a report published by the CDC, only 1 in 10 Americans eat their daily recommended amount of veggies*; the new Veggies Made Great Frittatas made with Beyond Meat® make it easy for people and their families to find new and delicious ways to eat more veggies. By shifting from animal to plant-based proteins and eating foods that are veggie-rich, the innovation of these new plant-forward products will be essential in the evolution of a better future for our planet and its people.
“This marks the first ever Veggies Made Great partnership, a collaboration that brings together the future of plant based: plant-based meat alternatives and veggie-packed, plant-based products,” says Elliot Huss, CEO of Veggies Made Great. “The products we created with Beyond Meat® are so unique in plant-based foods; both brands believe this is a step towards an evolution of a better-for-you planet and its people. These new frittatas make it easy for consumers and their families to find new and delicious ways to eat more veggies, consume more protein, and help address some of the global health and climate issues we see today.”
“Partnering with Veggies Made Great is another impactful way we can increase offerings for those looking to introduce plant-based protein into their diets,” said Tim Smith, Beyond Meat’s VP of North America Sales, Foodservice. “We’re delighted to work with a partner who shares our mission of creating delicious food that’s better for you and the planet.”
