"National, May 30, 2023 – Leading home-grown coffee brand, CCL Products (India) Limited, that ventured into the frozen foods category with plant-based meat brand ‘Continental Greenbird’ in 2022, was honored with the esteemed ‘Emerging Plant-Based Food Company’ award by Plant Based Foods Industry Association (PBFIA.)
The award was presented during the 2nd Plant-Based Foods Summit held in Delhi, which was attended by professionals, business leaders, and notable dignitaries. This accolade acknowledges CCL’s dedication in catering to the rising demand for sustainable products while bridging the gap between meat cravings and guilt-free consumption habits.
Continental Greenbird offers four variants of plant-based meat products that are made with premium ingredients and are high in nutrition and taste: Chicken-like Nuggets, Chicken-like Seekh Kebab, Chicken-like Sausage, and Mutton-like Keema. The products are made from plant-based protein which are derived from Green pea, Chickpea, and in the case of Keema from soya. This is done to create a real meat-like taste, texture and maintain excellent flavor.
Commenting on the recognition, Praveen Jaipuriar, CEO, CCL Products (India) Limited said, “We are thrilled and honored to receive the ‘Emerging Plant-Based Food Company’ award by PBFIA."
