Morningstar Farms is a division of the Kellogg Company that produces vegetarian food.[1] Many of their offerings are meatless variations of traditionally meat-based products, including some that are vegan.[2]

History

Morningstar Farms was introduced by Worthington Foods (originally a division of Miles Laboratories). The frozen food line of soy-based meatless meats, introduced into supermarkets and grocery stores nationwide in 1975 and widely advertised, provided millions of Americans with their first experience of soy used in this way.[3] Kellogg purchased Worthington Foods for $307 million in October 1999 at which point it acquired the Morningstar Farms brand.[4] Kellogg sold Worthington in 2014 but retained the Morningstar line of products.[5]
