Plantbelly offers 8-ounce containers; igourmet offers both 8-ounce and 24-ounce containers. For a limited time, customers can get 30 percent off The Simple Root products (excluding multi-brand bundles) at both online retailers by using the promo code TSR30.

David Behringer, The Simple Root Global CEO said, “Our brand is about giving all consumers a versatile, delicious way to add more veggies to their diet, which is why we make vegetables our first and most important ingredient. We’re thrilled customers will be able to order The Simple Root through Plantbelly and igourmet.”

Plantbelly offers a curated selection of plant-based foods that fit various diets and lifestyles, including flexitarian, vegetarian and vegan. igourmet carries the largest assortment of high-quality specialty foods — including more than 900 cheeses — from artisan food producers.

Unlike other plant-based foods that rely on soy, nuts, oils and highly processed ingredients, The Simple Root uses an innovative process to create a creamy base from root vegetables — including potatoes, sweet potatoes and parsnips — and then blends in more vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices. The products do not contain dairy, nuts, soy, gluten, wheat, eggs, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives. All products also carry the Certified Plant Based seal from the Plant Based Foods Association, the country’s first and only trade association representing plant-based food companies.

Leslie Maclin, Chief Marketing Officer of The Simple Root, said, “The Simple Root is the perfect partner for modern households who are looking for interesting ways to incorporate more vegetables and plant-based foods into their diet. Our delicious, veggie-based foods are great for consumers who are pursuing a plant-based diet and for those who just want to eat more veggies or reduce meat and dairy.”

The Simple Root will introduce more products into its global brand portfolio in late 2022 and 2023, including block, grated, sliced and snack cheese and desserts.
