Plant-based protein company Improved Nature LLC, has entered into an exclusive partnership with RMS Foods Inc., to provide the former new plant-based products at a value price for private label brands. Improved Nature is now the exclusive supplier for all private label plant-based protein products made at RMS Foods.

Through the partnership with RMS Foods, Improved Nature is introducing new heat and serve meals for food service and retail brands. The assortment includes Beefless Korean Bulgogi, Beefless Steak Tips, Plant-based Sausage Patties and Links, Plant-based Nuggets and Falafel. 

RMS Foods will pair Improved Nature’s proprietary plant-based technology with its experience in manufacturing plant-based products to produce a variety of plant-based alternatives. This will provide private label food companies with the opportunity to white label Improved Nature’s innovative plant-based protein products as their own, company officials said. 

“We believe it all starts with the right texture and taste. Consumers prefer the same texture and eating characteristics of meat and we deliver that with simple plant proteins and no added ingredients,” said Dr. Rody Hawkins, Improved Nature’s CEO. “In collaboration with RMS Foods, we will exceed the market’s needs with our cost-effective, nutritious plant-based protein. Together, we can efficiently produce your plant-based products.”  

“At RMS Foods, we have been focused on producing quality plant-based products for 23 years,” said Sam D. Cobb, RMS Foods president and CEO. “Our manufacturing efficiency was not available to the general market until now. With the Improved Nature process, paired with our experience and capabilities, we will be able to provide highly cost-effective plant-based protein products that are sure to please both businesses and consumers across the nation.” 

Improved Nature will be showcasing the new products at PLMA’s Private Label Trade Show in Chicago.
