Lightlife Foods will be the exclusive provider of plant-based chicken in the prepared foods sections at all Whole Foods stores across North America.
Lightlife Foods has had an incredible year. From the release of their breaded chicken tenders, a complete reformulation of products to include healthier ingredients, and the launch of their nationwide television campaign, the plant-based food company is making big waves. This October, Lightlife announced that their new, unbreaded vegan chicken is coming to Whole Foods’ prepared foods sections nationwide.
Vegan Chicken at Whole Foods’ Hot Bar
The new unbreaded vegan chicken product is made from pea protein and will be available in the prepared foods section at over 500 locations across the United States and Canada. The plant-based chicken will be featured in a variety of dishes in the hot bar, cold salad bar, and grab-and-go section. Be on the lookout for dishes, such as the new Whole Foods Classic Vegan Chicken Salad, which will feature the Lightlife vegan chicken.
The prepared foods section of Whole Foods has some great options for vegans looking for a quick meal on the go, with options ranging from grab-and-go pasta, a build-your-own salad bar, and hot soups and deli sides. Not all Whole Foods locations offer the same options, so check out their store locator to determine what vegan dishes your local store carries.
Other Lightlife Products at Whole Foods
If you want to try some of Lightlife’s products at home to see how the brand fits into your lifestyle, Whole Foods carries a variety of the brand’s other products. You can find organic tempeh and organic tempeh bacon (great on a BLT as a healthier option!), vegan hot dogs and Italian sausage, and vegan bacon and breakfast sausage patties. All of these products can be found in the refrigerated and freezer sections of the store or on Amazon—available for delivery in certain locations.
