LOS ANGELES (BUSINESS WIRE) Jan 17, 2019 — Don Lee Farms is announcing the global expansion of its popular organic plant-based burger to 15 countries. The burger, alongside its popular veggie burgers, will be sold in the frozen section.

The Don Lee Farms Organic Plant-Based Burger, made with a handful of organic plant-based ingredients, sizzles on the grill just like raw beef. The burger is organic, vegan, gluten-free and an excellent source of plant-based protein. The fastest growing burger of its kind is the only burger to qualify for USDA’s organic certification. VegNews, the world’s number one plant-based magazine, named Don Lee Farms' burger the top news story of 2018.

Donald Goodman, President, Don Lee Farms, said â€śWe are thrilled to be introducing these organic burgers for the first time to a global audience. We have made it our goal to bring our Organic Plant-Based Burger, along with our other popular plant-based and meat proteins, to more people than ever before.”

The burger will be available within months in 15 countries, including in Europe, South America and the Caribbean.

Since its launch, Don Lee Farms has sold millions of the Organic Plant-Based Burger to club stores, markets and on Amazon®'s Treasure Truck. CookingLight® proclaimed, “when a new 'beefy' burger by Don Lee Farms came to the market… we gamely decided to taste them against the other beef-like veggie burgers. And we liked them. In a side by side taste test, we preferred Don Lee Farms’ burgers."

Donald added, “Other brands talk about sustainability. At the same time, all of them use artificial ingredients banned in some countries outside of the U.S. We are proud to be able to provide a truly sustainable solution.”

Danny Goodman, Development, Don Lee Farms said, “We offer an alternative that’s backed by the USDA Organic Certification Program. Remarkably, our burger is the only successful plant-based burger to be free from ingredients not found in nature. As we expand beyond our borders and continue our family tradition of innovation, we will continue to roll out items that bring sustainable choices to a global consumer.”
