Bad news for those of us who LOVED Gardein products, they've temporarily pulled most of their products out of Canadian markets.
Gardein, creator of products that include fishless filets, crabless cakes, and a variety of chik'n products, has decided to remove a plethora of products from Canadian markets because of an inability to meet demand. They're currently investing in a larger facility and will decide at a later date whether they will reintroduce their products back into Canadian markets.
This is seriously bad news for vegans and vegetarians like myself who relied on the fabulous variety that Gardein provided. I was purchasing at least 2 of their products on a weekly basis and regularly dealt with shortages but the products were so good that I was determined to hunt them down. Knowing now that they are not around, it's extremely disappointing.
Don't get me wrong, YVES makes a variety of delicious meatless products as well but Gardein's variety couldn't be beat. There was literally every kind of "meat" you could think of making it fun to prepare dinner. Something different to enjoy every night to center your meal around, it's very unfortunate that they'll not be available for what could be forever.
Anywho, thought y'all would like to know the details because if you're anything like me, you've been hunting to no avail.
