Swedish Hospital Partners With Seattle Food Tech to
Menu Crispy Nuggets
Hospital becomes first institution in the nation to dish up
plant-based nuggets from local food start-up

(Seattle, WA – February 9, 2019) – Seattle Food Tech (SFT), an innovative food production company creating delicious, affordable plant-based meats for the foodservice industry, today announced it’s teaming up with Swedish Medical Center as the first hospital in the nation to sell its crispy chicken nuggets.

When: Tuesday, Feb. 12, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Where: Swedish, First Hill Campus Cafeteria, 747 Broadway, Seattle, WA 98122

SFT’s Crispy Nuggets have the delicious taste and texture of chicken, but are made from entirely plant-based sources, making them free of antibiotics, hormones, and cholesterol, while being packed with protein. The product has a lighter footprint on the environment, requiring less water and emitting fewer carbon emissions than animal-based nuggets.

“Our novel manufacturing technique captures flavor and moisture in our protein-packed plant-based meat that cooks up to a delicious golden brown, resulting in a mouthwatering burst of flavors,” said Seattle Food Tech founder and CEO Christie Lagally. “We’re thrilled to team up with Swedish to bring this product to its guests.”

“We’re excited to be the first hospital in the nation to offer Seattle Food Tech’s Crispy Nuggets,” said Corporate Executive Chef Zachary Schwab. “This partnership is perfectly in line with our goal of providing delicious, sustainable options for our guests every day.”
