Sloppy Joe

Sweet and smoky, familiar yet a twist on the classic your customers will love. Sloppy Joe works perfectly as a plant-based alternative to the original. Made with plant-based proteins, complimented by a savory tomato sauce with an essence of smoke flavor.

Preparation is as easy as heating and adding to a bun or include in any recipes calling for ground beef.

“The base and texture are spot on!”
