Plant-based meat producers Barvecue have released its first carnitas product, a twist on the classic Mexican food made from shredded pork.
Carnitas can be used in tacos, fajitas, burritos, enchiladas and more.
Barvecue’s plant-based and wood-smoked meat range is gluten-free, vegan and non-GMO verified.
Lee Cooper, founder and CEO, commented: “We are seeing wide appeal from vegans, vegetarians, flexitarians and meat-eaters looking to put a healthier option on the center of the plate a couple of times a week. Barvecue’s new plant-based carnitas bring a whole new flavour of plant-based goodness to everyone.”
The carnitas are handcrafted at Barvecue’s Carolina Smokehouse production facility along with the brand’s range of other plant-based proteins.
The new release will be available for purchase in the US in the frozen aisle at Lowes Foods, Earth Fare and Safeway locations from December.
