Many food companies spend a lot of time (and money) convincing consumers that their products are the key to keeping those perennial promises we all make: to eat more healthily, lose a few pounds, and exercise more.
In June 2015, we removed GMO ingredients from all of our products. In 2016, we went a step further: promising to take GMOs out of our entire supply chain and seeking third-party verification for all of our products.
A new year is well underway, and for many, that means making life-changing resolutions, like adopting cleaner eating habits. By now you can probably tell, we’re big fans of simple ingredients and clean eating, which is why we’re excited about our partnership with Whole30®.

Despite an endless amount of sandwich possibilities, many people make the same sandwich over and over again. And then, there are those who still haven’t found their ultimate sandwich. According to a recent survey conducted by Applegate:
• 70 percent of parents are looking for new and easy sandwich recipes
• 10 percent of parents say there’s no such thing as a great sandwich
• 15% of parents blame their lack of lunch inspiration on not having enough time to make their children’s lunches
At Applegate, we care about your health—and the planet’s. That's why we offer full, transparent nutritional information and commissioned an independent, third-party analysis of the environmental impact of the Applegate® Well Carved™ Organic Grass Fed Beef Burger.
Change doesn’t just happen. It requires great leadership. That’s why Applegate®, the nation’s leading natural and organic meat brand, is proud to have added three experienced and progressive leaders to our team.
Since 1987, Applegate has been on a mission: Changing The Meat We Eat.® With the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), putting unprecedented demands on the food system, that mission is more important now than ever. Applegate is paying close attention to the situation, and we’re working with partners – from farmers to warehouse distributors – to take extra measures that put safety first during this challenging time. Our team is working around the clock on precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19 and minimize disruptions in getting you the high-quality natural and organic meats you expect from Applegate.
In recent weeks, Applegate has been reflecting on what we can do, as a company, to improve racial equity and make a meaningful, lasting impact both inside our company and externally. Today, we’re ready to start the work we hope will make a difference.
