Nasoya to Showcase Plant-based Innovations at 2022 Global Produce & Floral Show

Nasoya will showcase its successful Plantspired line of ready-to-eat plant-based meal solutions, including a first taste of forthcoming innovations, at this year’s Global Produce & Floral Show, Oct. 27-29 in Orlando, FL.

Attendees will sample the popular Plantspired Steak marinated in Korean BBQ sauce as well as a new variety of Plantspired Toss’ables, which feature bite-sized, pre-baked tofu bites marinated with Korean Sweet Chili sauce. The new Plantspired Toss’ables variety will be available at retailers nationwide in 2023.

“Nasoya is committed to meeting consumers where they are on their plant-based journey, offering convenient and delicious Asian-inspired options that appeal to American’s evolving preferences,” said Ellen Kim, Director of Brand Strategy & Marketing Communications at Pulmuone, parent company of Nasoya. “Our Plantspired products are better-for-you, plant-based solutions created with accessibility and sustainability in mind.”

Nasoya’s first expansion into plant-based meat alternatives, award-winning Korean BBQ Plantspired Steak, is continuing to gain traction with increased retail distribution and food service partnerships since its retail debut in March 2022. Plantspired Steak has grown its retail footprint at more than 4,000 grocers nationwide, with distribution at Wegmans, Publix, Sprouts, Stop & Shop, Albertsons, Vons, Pavilions and more. Sales of Plantspired Steak have increased 800 percent since it originally arrived in grocery stores, highlighting the consumer demand for plant-based food options that don’t sacrifice taste, quality or nutrition.

Plantspired Steak also continues to make waves in the food service category with products now featured at university dining halls across the country – including University of California Riverside, University of California Los Angeles, Ohio State University, Georgia State University, University of Minnesota, Rice University, Vanderbilt and The University of Massachusetts Amherst. Plantspired Steak was also recently showcased and tasted at the popular Los Angeles Vegandale Festival, as well as at Natural Products Expo West earlier this year.

“We’ve worked hard to perfect a plant-based steak product that is charcoal grilled to perfection with Asian-inspired flavors, offering a premium experience in terms of taste and texture. We’re thrilled that our consumers’ reaction to our Plantspired Steak has matched our excitement,” said Sung Yoon Nam, Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Pulmuone. “We’re looking forward to bringing consumers more authentic, sustainable and nutritious plant-based protein options that are convenient and easy to incorporate into a variety of meals.”
