VANCOUVER, British Columbia, June 11, 2015 /CNW/ -- Gardein™, the plant protein brand currently sold in more than 22,000 stores across North America, was awarded top honors for its golden fishless filet and crispy chick'n with veggies pocket meal at the 22nd annual Canadian Grand Prix New Product Awards, which celebrates new products in food, non-food and private-label categories.
Gardein's golden fishless filet and crispy chick'n with veggies pocket meal were announced winners, marking the fifth consecutive win and sixth overall win for the brand. Gardein's golden fishless filets taste great, contain 9g of protein per 2 filets, 32mg of Omega-3's with the added benefits of less fat, and less calories vs. fish filets. The new crispy chick'n with veggies pocket meal is a game changer for on-the-go meals. The hand-held pocket meal has crispy chick'n on the outside and kale, barley and sundried tomatoes on the inside. Full of flavor and packed with 20g of protein, it's ready to eat in only 5 minutes. Both products are made with non-GMO soy and wheat, grains and veggies, are vegan, kosher and contain no cholesterol.
