NEW YORK, NY (February 13, 2020) — Seemore Meats & Veggies, a vegetable-forward meat company, launches its first line of products: innovative sausages that combine whole ingredients, responsibly raised meat sourced from humanely raised-certified farms, and up to 35% fresh vegetables (www.eatseemore.com; SRP: $9.99-$10.99). Founded by fourth-generation butcher Cara Nicoletti, and food veterans Erin Patinkin, co-founder of Ovenly, and Ariel Hauptman, Seemore Meats & Veggies offers a unique, fun, and delicious solution to help reduce the environmental impact of meat consumption.
Seemore Meats & Veggies is a female-owned and -led company with a mission to make it easier and more fun for people to eat well. The company sources all-natural ingredients and humanely raised-certified meat, uses recyclable or compostable packaging, and partners with vendors and suppliers who commit to providing good jobs and living wages to their staff. Additionally, Seemore Meats & Veggies is one of the first companies in the industry to offset its carbon emissions from production, making it carbon-neutral. Beyond inventive sausages, the business prioritizes company culture and provides employees with Fortune 500 benefits, such as 401K and 401K matching, primary and secondary caregiver leave, charitable donation matching, generous paid time off, and more. The company hopes to set a new standard for the industry with a long-term vision to empower a happier, healthier, and more sustainable world.
Seemore Meats & Veggies’ sausages are made with clean, whole ingredients, responsibly raised meats from humanely-raised certified farms, and a hearty dose of farm-fresh vegetables (up to 35% per link). Launch flavors include:
Bubbe’s Chicken Soup: humanely raised chicken, carrots, celery, garlic, parsley, and dill. Inspired by Cara’s grandma’s (and all the grandmas’) cooking.
Broccoli Melt: humanely raised pork, broccolini, spicy pepperoncini, garlic, Monterey Jack cheese. Seemore’s take on the Philly Roast Pork Sandwich.
Loaded Baked Potato: humanely raised pork, potatoes, sharp cheddar cheese, bacon, and chives. An example of the company’s obsession with that fine line between highbrow and lowbrow.
La Dolce Beet-a: humanely raised pork, beets, garlic, and fennel seed. A twist on the classic sweet Italian.
