Have You Heard About The “Applegate Clean Meat Cleanse?”

Founded in 1987, Applegate produces high-quality natural and organic hot dogs, bacon, sausages, deli meats, cheese and frozen products. Its products are made without any GMO ingredients, and are reportedly sourced from farms where animals are treated with care and respect and are allowed to grow at their natural rate, all part of its long-standing mission — “Changing The Meat We Eat.” Notably, Applegate became a stand-alone subsidiary of Hormel Foods in July 2015.

As announced earlier today, the new “Applegate Clean Meat Cleanse” program lends a helping hand to everyone in resetting their palates and meat-eating habits after their Super Bowl Sunday “mis-steaks.” Applegate developed this cheeky “cleanse” to show the small — yet delicious — steps meat lovers can take in their everyday lives to choose clean meat options by introducing them to three curated “cleanse programs,” as listed below, of Applegate’s signature products.

The “Applegate Clean Meat Cleanse” is also the first program of the mission-driven brand’s new “Go Applegatarian” movement. Applegate wants to add a new type of “tarian” to the lexicon of eating ideologies and defines an Applegatarian as someone who consciously chooses clean, craveable meat for ethical, environmentally responsible and delicious reasons.

Commented Nicole Glenn, Vice President of Brand Strategy & Innovation for Applegate: “At Applegate, we wholeheartedly believe that you can have your meat and eat it too — enjoy it without compromising ethical or social values.” Continued Glenn: “The Applegate Clean Meat Cleanse brings this to life in a tongue-and-cheek way. We know there are many conscientious carnivores out there, and we want to help them make better choices and to ‘Go Applegatarian.'”

Added Applegate President John Ghingo: “The ‘Go Applegatarian’ movement is an extension of our brand’s mission, ‘Changing The Meat We Eat,’ and we couldn’t be more excited to launch it. Applegate’s beliefs in the way animals should be raised and how food should be produced can completely change the way consumers think about and understand meat, and the Applegatarian movement will create a community for consumers who want to enjoy meat in a socially responsible way.”

The “Applegate Clean Meat Cleanse” will feature three different levels of cleansing, all with different Applegate products to get your body and mind back on track following your game day feast:

– Level 1 – Clean Body – A gentle introduction for first-time cleansers — Products: Applegate Organics Sunday Bacon Bacon, Applegate Organics Chicken Nuggets, Applegate Naturals Turkey Pepperoni & Cheddar Snack Pack
– Level 2 – Clean-er Body – A deeper detox with no sugar, gluten free and paleo-friendly products — Products: Applegate Organics No Sugar Bacon, Applegate Naturals No Sugar Chicken & Herb Breakfast Sausage, Applegate Organics Oven Roasted Turkey Breast
– Level 3 – Clean Body, Clean Planet, Clean Soul – For cleansing both body and mind — Products – Applegate Organics The Great Organic Uncured Beef Hot Dog Brand, Applegate Organics The Great Organic Blend Burger Turkey Burger, Applegate Organics Black Forest Ham

In addition, Applegate’s new “Go Applegatarian” movement can be found on social and digital media through a series of short digital videos depicting the different types of “tarians” and how you might be an Applegatarian.
