Dodger fans can now enjoy the Plant-Based Dodger Dog at all home games
CHICAGO (June 3, 2021) – Greenleaf Foods, SPC, owner of leading plant-based brand Field Roast™ (“Field Roast”), announced a multi-year partnership with the Los Angeles Dodgers to feature the new, groundbreaking Field Roast Signature Stadium Dog as the Official Plant-Based Dodger Dog.
The Field Roast Signature Stadium Dog is the first plant-based hot dog to be recognized by the LA Dodgers with this designation. Fans can purchase and enjoy the Plant-Based Dodger Dog at select concession stands and in the suites at Dodger Stadium. The Plant-Based Dodger Dog will feature the same great flavour as the traditional meat hot dog and will be served with fans’ choice of toppings.
“The Dodger Dog is one of the most iconic hot dogs in America, so we’re excited to offer a plant-based version that’s just as crave-worthy,” said Dan Curtin, President of Greenleaf Foods, SPC. “Field Roast is proud to partner with the Dodger organization to bring the Signature Stadium Dog to Dodger Nation and we know that it will quickly amass its own league of loyal fans.”
Another notable first, the Field Roast Signature Stadium Dog is the first pea protein-based hot dog in North America. It is naturally smoked with maple hardwood chips to recreate the ballpark flavour that fans know and love and offers the same amount of protein per serving as most traditional hot dogs. Unlike traditional meat hot dogs, the Plant-Based Hot Dog also has no cholesterol or nitrates.
“Our fans are increasingly looking for high-quality and delicious plant-based options, and we are excited to add Field Roast’s products to our enhanced Dodger Stadium concession lineup,” said Corey Norkin, Dodger Vice President, Global Partnerships.
For hot dog lovers across the country, Field Roast’s Signature Stadium Dog is also available in a six-link pack and will be sold alongside traditional beef dogs at most major grocery retailers.
