Amanda Appelson is the Marketing Manager at Plantega, which works to make plant-based foods more accessible through bodegas across New York City. Plantega partners with bodegas – neighborhood corner deli stores and a staple of New York culture – to supplement existing menus with 100% plant-based deli-style options that are healthier for people and the planet. Plantega's model empowers retailers with ingredients, training, and operational and marketing support to sell plant-based options via their deli counters, while owners make additional revenue by meeting the rising consumer demand for more sustainable food. It is a win-win-win solution that provides upsides for people, planet, and profit.
