At the beginning of March 2020, the Zabka convenience store chain informed about novelties in the offer of its stores. In response to the changing trends, Zabka introduced non-meat hot dogs.
Non-meat hot dogs at Zabka stores
Zabka informed that a non-meat version of hot dogs is now available. Hot dogs are based on, among others, pea protein, potato protein and rapeseed oil. In addition, Zabka Cafe offers sauces without animal ingredients. As Zabka emphasized in the announcement, the process of preparing meatless hot dogs ensures that sausages are separated from those without meat and also that they are served with other pliers.
Zabka chain of shops has over 6,000 outlets. According to Zabka, hot dogs are sold in its stores every 2 seconds on average.
Growing popularity of meatless diet
According to PMR surveys, the popularity of a meatless diet is growing. This trend has an impact not only on the HoReCa market, but also on the gastronomic offer in non-gastronomy outlets, e.g. shops or petrol stations. All the largest fast-food chains in Poland – McDonald’s, KFC, Burger King or Bobby Burger – already have non-meat items on their menu. Vegan hot dogs are also offered by IKEA, as well as Orlen and Lotos petrol stations.
