The Bodega Holds Plant-Based Meat's Future

In 2020, the pandemic shut down the city, but bodegas saved us. Bodegas provided chopped cheeses, iced coffee, and toilet paper 24/7 while restaurants were closed.  

Vegan BEC sandwiches may become a New York staple if more bodegas served them.  

Additionally, plant-based meat of all kinds is often criticized for being too expensive and inaccessible.

Plantega and bodegas create vegan sandwiches. They teach chefs, provide menus and signage, and order ingredients.   

Plantega retailers appear on delivery apps. Bodegas retain all in-store profits and split delivery income with Plantega.  

Plantega orders spike late at night because vegan options are scarce.   

Although I'm a carnivore and dubious of plant-based meat alternatives, I'm enthusiastic about sustainability and attempt to eat vegetarian.
