If you live in the Southeastern United States or Washington, D.C., you might have a Harris Teeter supermarket near you. The grocery chain, which operates about 270 locations across the area (via ScrapeHero), might soon become a favored destination for vegans, with the plant-based canned tuna brand unMEAT announcing (via press release) yesterday that its products are now available at all Harris Teeter locations.
Previously available only online through retailers such as GTFO and It’s Vegan!, unMEAT’s canned Tuna in Water and Tuna in Sunflower Oil — which are egg-free and trans-fat-free — are now available to all Harris Teeter customers. “We are very excited to have unMEAT fish-free tuna available in Harris Teeter stores, making plant-based, shelf-stable protein more accessible to Americans across seven states,” Gregory Branzon, the chief operating officer of Century Pacific Group, unMEAT’s parent company, wrote in a press release. “We hope that with a budget-friendly option easily found at their regular grocery store, more consumers will opt to incorporate more plant-based meals in their diet.”
So if you eat plant-based but have been craving a tuna melt or a tuna casserole, now’s your chance to get to work in the kitchen.
