Brooklyn-based vegan meat brand Louie's recently launched Pig Savin' Ribs.
These vegan ribs are made with a plant-based mix of flours, spices, and a house-made barbecue sauce. The Pig Savin' Ribs were created by Louie's Plant-Based co-founder Louis Catizone because of his passion for grilling and to introduce a new flavor in his vegan deli store.
These ribs are featured in a vegan rib sandwich, which became the shop's most popular offering. Given the response, Louie's Plant-Based went to create a larger product offering for retail and restaurants.
“I can remember just a few years ago searching high and low for plant-based burgers,”
“Now they're everywhere, but there's still very few options in the vegan grilling category. We want to make barbecuing a much more inclusive space and bring products to market that appeal to vegans and meat-eaters alike.”Catizone
Louie's Pig Savin' Ribs are now available on the company website for $19.99 and in a few selected places in NY city each week.
A portion of proceeds from the sales of Pig Savin' Ribs will benefit animal sanctuaries across the country.
