Before the Butcher

Before the Butcher is a category leader in the plant-based industry in texture, taste and innovation. With patties, grounds, chunks and more, Before the Butcher will help you create amazingly meatless recipes! We are dedicated to supplying our customers with the perfect plant protein that will make your customers question.....Is it really meatless? Before the Butcher has also launched Mainstream™ plant-based burger patties. Until Mainstream patties hit the market, there were no plant-based burgers that fit into a family's food budget. Mainstream competes with traditional burger patties, not only in taste, but in price. We brought plant-based to the people and made meatless mainstream.

Frequently Asked Questions

How did you come up with the name Before the Butcher©?

We felt our name needed to reflect our Vision, Mission and Commitment to our customers. To us, Before the Butcher© symbolizes the plight of domestic animals butchered in inhumane ways to feed the masses. We hope to provide a solution to feeding the world before the butcher is necessary.

Are your products gluten-free?

Yes, all of our products are gluten-free.

Are your products Vegan?

Definitely! All of our products are Vegan.

Why do you use canola oil?

We believe expeller pressed canola oil is the healthiest widely available oil suitable for our products. Canola has the lowest percentage of saturated fat of any cooking oil. It’s loaded with Omega-3 fatty acids which makes it one of the most heart healthy oils. The canola oil we use is expeller pressed (NO chemicals used to process) and Non-GMO Project verified.

Do I have to cook your Plant-Based Meat?

Some of our products are fully-cooked, so we recommend you prepare the other items that are not cooked in the oven, on the stovetop or on a grill. Our plant-based products cook in just under 6 minutes!

Is soy protein healthy?

Yes! Our Non-GMO soy protein is one of the most complete proteins available in plant-based products. Our soy is clean and verified so that we can provide the healthiest alternative to animal protein that we can.
