"Our eCommerce platform provides VERY GOOD with the ability to place our new products straight from our test kitchen onto consumers' plates, helping to accelerate our new product launches. This allows for immediate consumer awareness and feedback while building momentum for our products' transition from eCommerce to retail."
The Butcher's Select Bratwurst Sausages and Breakfast Sausages are currently available for purchase online through limited release, with a full product line launch this fall that will include:

- Cajun Sausage: Jalapenos, green bell peppers, organic veggies and 14g of protein combine for a rustic Cajun sausage that puts you right in the heart of 'ole Louisiana.
- Flippin' Good Burger: Gluten-free and taste-heavy, these thyme-infused burgers contain 19g of protein. BBQ or pan fry as you would a "normal" burger, even though these beauties are anything but.
- MMM...Meatballs: Finally, an Italian plant-based meatball that's bellissimo, tasty and with perfect bite and texture. With 17g of protein per serving, these spheres of delight can be easily cooked up with your favorite sauce for a truly authentic classic.
