Is your “meat” non-GMO?
This is a priority for us, which is why we pledge to you that every single ingredient that we use in our artisan plant-based meats is non-GMO. This includes our soy beans, which are identity preserved and non-GMO. This means that the seed that was planted for the plants that yield the grain originated from a non-GMO source. Our source works closely with their farmers and suppliers to ensure that the ingredients are non-GMO, and has implemented state-of-the-art testing equipment that allows for in-house testing.
What products are gluten-free?
Our Spanish “Chorizo,” Ground “Chicken,” Ground “Beef,” “Chicken” Strips and “Crab” Cakes are all gluten-free and wheat-free.
How long do your products last in the refrigerator?
Everything from our kitchen is small batch made from scratch, and vacuum-sealed so it can stay fresh. The “best by” date is printed on the package, and generally falls around 8 weeks from packaging date. If you open the package, just be sure to use within a week for optimal freshness.
Can I freeze the meat?
Sure! If you only use a portion of the meats, and want to save the rest, just place in a freezer-safe bag and freeze. The meats can be frozen for up to 9 months. Then, when you are ready to enjoy, just place the meats back in the refrigerator and allow to thaw before using.
Where did you get the name “The Abbot’s Butcher”?
I spent a very special part of my life living on Abbot Kinney in Venice, so there is an emotional sentiment here. And Abbot Kinney himself was actually a conservationist, which goes hand in hand with part of the mission of this company – to create a sustainable meat company that can help us grow a little closer to the kind of world we all want to live in.
