- TiNDLE, Next Gen Foods' popular plant-based chicken, accelerates its UK launch with leading retailers and launches a new AI-powered marketing challenge
LONDON, April 19, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Gen Foods – the company behind TiNDLE and Mwah! – today announces the accelerated launch of TiNDLE at new retailers, Morrisons and Mighty Plants, following a successful trial of its new grocery products last winter in the UK and its launch at Germany's largest supermarket group. This is a response to growing consumer demand for plant-based chicken in the UK market, supported by a study commissioned by TiNDLE and conducted by Censuswide, according to which a resounding 68% of people in the UK believe that plant-based meals will become more accepted in the next five years, with the highest confidence among consumers in Cardiff (77%), Bristol (75%) and Leeds and London (71%).
Starting this week, UK shoppers will be able to find TiNDLE burgers and nuggets in more than 350 Morrisons stores across the country and through its online store and home delivery services. Earlier this year, TiNDLE participated in a limited-time "Veganuary" sale in Morrisons stores, generating widespread consumer demand and affinity for its new plant-based chicken products. The brand has also recently enjoyed great success in Germany, where it launched in February with 2,200 EDEKA stores and has since expanded to nearly 4,000 stores.
"When we launched TiNDLE just two years ago, our ultimate goal was to bring enjoyment to the center of people's plates, but in a way that doesn't require the use of animals and has a less burdensome footprint on our environment," Andre said. Menezes, co-founder and CEO of TiNDLE. "After hearing from UK consumers about how they enjoy cooking with TiNDLE, we can't wait to bring our new food products and make them more accessible for people to incorporate into their daily routines and recipes."

Michelin, and now also in grocery stores. Just one year after TiNDLE debuted in several top restaurants including BrewDog, Seoul Bird, Clean Kitchen and more, Brits can now enjoy TiNDLE for delicious and convenient home cooking.
TiNDLE's unique approach and remarkable culinary expertise stems from developing its products with chefs, for chefs, to master the same taste, texture and experience of animal-based chicken. Working with culinary experts since day one, TiNDLE now brings that recognizable, elevated restaurant experience directly into homes, allowing them to recreate the same delicious chicken recipes and cuisine favorites at their own convenience.
TiNDLE's new offerings have been developed in collaboration with the company's world-class R&D team and expert chefs from around the world, all to bring that same distinguished restaurant experience home. All products incorporate Lipi™, the company's patented emulsion of vegetable ingredients, which reflects the aroma, ease of cooking and flavorful qualities of chicken fat. Plus, they're made with GMO-free ingredients and provide a good source of protein and fiber, with 17g of protein and 8g of fiber just in every 100g of TiNDLE.
