Chile-based FoodTech company NotCo announced the launch of NotBurger™ at retailers across the US including Whole Foods coming at the end of August.
Just in time for summer BBQs, NotBurger™ features a unique combination of plants like peas, bamboo, spinach, chia and cocoa powder, to create the mouthwatering recipe that is taking the plant-based sector by storm. Like all NotCo products, the innovative recipe for NotBurger™ was created by Giuseppe, alongside NotCo’s team of AI Chefs and R&D experts producing plant-based foods with
incredible accuracy – allowing them to taste,
feel and function just like animal-based foods. Whether a meat lover or plant-based eater, the incredible flavors that NotBurger™ offers attracts the masses and is the best tasting option for consumers to enjoy.
“We believe we must completely change the food system, and to do so we need to create amazingly delicious products that don’t require consumers to compromise or make sacrifices,” said Matias Muchnick, CEO and Co-Founder of NotCo. “We’re now bringing our NotBurger™ to the U.S. after achieving 5% of market share of the total burger market in Latin America in just two years of sales. We are also receiving tremendous feedback following the initial launch at select Giant locations earlier this year. Once you taste it, you’ll truly believe in the power a great-tasting product has in consumer adoption. Our consumers in the U.S. have been asking, and we’re beyond excited to finally welcome NotBurger™ into our U.S. portfolio of NotCo products.”
NotBurger™ first launched in Chile in 2020 at Burger King, where a 3-month forecast sold out in three weeks, achieving 4x the sales target. In conventional retail channels, NotBurger™ holds over 5% of the market share for the total burger category. With this success, NotBurger™ has continued to expand throughout Latin America and now, North America.
