Instant Plant-Based Meals

kencko Launched Three New Flavors of Its Sustainable Instant Meals

— September 20, 2022 — Lifestyle
kencko, the B-corp brand dedicated to food-on-the-go, has launched three new flavors of its instant meals. The new flavors include Pasta Primavera, Classic Tomato Soup, and Garden Lentil Salad.

With just a few drops of hot water, the chef-crafted bowls are ready in minutes, using the same freeze-dried method beloved for its ease, nutrition, and shelf stability. These meals provide 4 of the 5 daily recommended servings of fruits and vegetables, so they can be enjoyed at home or on the go.

Available only on kencko.com and starting at $4.99 per bowl for subscribers, a subscription contains an assorted box of 16 bowls. Subscriptions are flexible, allowing for pause or cancellation at any time, even after one box, and your first box comes with a free insulated bowl and spork. Plus, each box of 16 kencko bowls saves around 3.5 pounds of food waste.

1. Instant Plant-based Meals - The rise of instant healthy plant-based meal alternatives with extended shelf life offers opportunities in food manufacturing and home delivery services.
2. Subscription Meal Services - Subscription-based meal services offer disruptive innovation through personalized meal plans that cater to dietary preferences, lifestyles, and the demand for sustainable, high-quality meals.
3. Eco-friendly Packaging - Offering easy-to-carry packaging that is eco-friendly and recyclable will be a key driver for meal delivery service providers and packaging manufacturers to respond to the growing demand for sustainability.
Industry Implications
