Dignitaries from across the state convene in Nashville, NC to celebrate growth and innovation in plant-based protein

Nashville, NC— Atlantic Natural Foods, LLC (ANF) has officially commissioned their principal plant in Nashville, NC following consolidation of four separate operations. Nashville Mayor Donald Street was on hand for the ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by representatives of Governor Cooper, Congressman Walter Jones Jr., U.S. Senators Thom Tillis and Richard Burr, members of the chamber of commerce, dignitaries from across North Carolina and the members of The Adventist Distributor AFDA who had travelled from across the country to attend.

The ceremony marked the opening of the facility after a $1.4 Million update that combined multiple operations under one roof. The consolidation marks the completion of the first of four phases of development that ANF expects to bring over 100 jobs to the Nashville area in the next three to five years.

“This is an exciting time for Atlantic Natural Foods and plant-based protein,” said Doug Hines, chairman and general partner of ANF. “As the global population continues to grow, we will not be able to rely on animal protein alone.

The R&D center will include a live working kitchen to bring in individuals from institutions, schools, universities and the military, along with nutritionists, to create new plant-based food solutions and provide a platform for education about the world of possibilities with plant-based foods.

“While our Loma Linda brand has been around for over 100 years we see this as just the beginning,” said Steve Morris, chief operating officer of ANF. “The possibilities with plant-based foods are endless and we want Nashville to be at the forefront of innovation while making it a destination for people looking learn more about how they can add healthy, sustainable plant-based foods to their diet.”

ANF currently produces an array of plant-based foods and beverages under the Loma Linda®, Neat® and Kaffree Roma™ brands.
