Lucky stores will feature advertising stands located throughout the store to highlight plant-based food options from the 16 participating PBFA member brands including Beyond Meat, Good Karma Foods, and Tofurky among others.

“We are thrilled to partner with Lucky Supermarkets to promote a wide array of delicious plant-based foods to Lucky and Lucky California shoppers,” Michele Simon, Executive Director of PBFA, said in a statement.
