The Los Angeles Dodgers announced a multi-year partnership with Greenleaf Foods, SPC, to make Field Roast the supplier of a veggie dog option at Dodger Stadium. The agreement makes Field Roast’s signature stadium dog the official plant-based Dodger Dog.
Beginning with the next homestand that starts June 11, fans will have the option to purchase the plant-based Dodger Dog at select concession stands and suites.
“The Dodger Dog is one of the most iconic hot dogs in America, so we’re excited to offer a plant-based version that’s just as crave-worthy,” president of Greenleaf Foods, SPC, Dan Curtin said in a statement.
“Field Roast is proud to partner with the Dodger organization to bring the Signature Stadium Dog to Dodger Nation and we know that it will quickly amass its own league of loyal fans.”
The Field Roast signature stadium dog is the first pea protein-based hot dog in North America. It is naturally smoked with maple hardwood chips to recreate the ballpark flavor and offers the same amount of protein per serving as most traditional hot dogs.
However, unlike traditional meat hot dogs, the plant-based hot dog does not have no cholesterol or nitrates.
“Our fans are increasingly looking for high-quality and delicious plant-based options, and we are excited to add Field Roast’s products to our enhanced Dodger Stadium concession lineup,” Dodgers vice president of global partnerships Corey Norkin said.
In addition to at Dodger Stadium, Field Roast’s signature stadium dog is available in a six-link pack and will be sold alongside traditional beef dogs at most major grocery retailers.
Papa Cantella’s supplying Dodger Dog
This season brought about a new supplier for the traditional Dodger Dog, as Papa Cantella’s replaced Farmer John. The change was brought about after the Dodgers and Farmer John did not reach an agreement on a new contract.
Although opinions have varied, most fans claim the new Dodger Dog available at Dodger Stadium essentially tastes the same as the Farmer John version. Dodgers president and CEO Stan Kasten said the team conducted exhaustive tests to ensure that would be the case.
