Where Did My Vegan Burgers Go?

March 12th, 2008 by NashVeggie Leave a reply »

If you have read other posts here you know I regularly check my server statistics for search terms that lead visitors to this site.  I have noticed “Publix veggie burgers and vegan burgers pulled from shelves” or some variant a few times in the past weeks.  I noticed the last time I was at Publix that the vegan patties we get each week were on clearance.  This I found alarming as they are some of the best, unless you count Amy’s burgers at $4.50 a pack.   We took what few packs were left and asked the manager about the clearance and if they were discontinued.  He told me Publix does not clearance a Greenwise product unless they are going to be discontinued and directed me to contact corporate and let them know I wanted them to keep the product on the shelf.

After emailing Publix’s corporate office this is the reply I received:

Thank you for your email. We appreciate our customers taking the time to contact us.

The plant used by the manufacturer of our Publix Green Wise Frozen items has been sold.
We are currently sourcing a new supplier and have every desire to return these items to the shelf as quickly as possible; but we will be out of stock for an undetermined amount of time.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact us. If we can be of any further assistance regarding this matter, please either call our Consumer Relations toll-free number at 1-800-242-1227, write us at the Publix Super Markets Corporate Office, PO Box 407, Lakeland, FL 33802, ATTN: Consumer Relations, or contact us at our website, publix.com

So, if you are looking for your Publix Greenwise Vegan or Veggie patties and/or burgers and can’t find them, they will return!

    Oh! Thank goodness! Those were our favorite (and main source for veggie “meat” for a while and the cost was SO reasonable. We were so shocked that they would discontinue such a great product, but its relieving to know that they’ll be back eventually 🙂

      Thanks for the update Chuck! I have given up prepackaged, frozen veggie burgers for the most part but it’s good to know a good product is available again.
