The 3 Best-Selling Primal Strips Flavors You Should Try

Primal Spirit Foods, a division of Primal Spirit Inc., was founded in Moundsville, West Virginia in 2001 by friends with a passion for vegetarianism, world travel, and the environment. On their global adventures, they’d often encounter delicious meat alternatives not available in the American market. With their realistic texture and great flavor, they knew these meat alternatives would be satisfying to vegans, vegan-curious, and meat-eaters.

Inspired to develop a meatless jerky to sell in the US, they searched for a recipe to use as a starting point. In the late 90s, a Thai chef shared one that was the best they’d ever tasted. After further developing the recipe and cooking techniques, they partnered with a manufacturer in Taiwan that had been developing meat alternatives since 1959, and Primal Strips Meatless Vegan Jerky was born.

Primal Strips was one of the earliest meatless jerky alternatives available, and filled a large void in the plant-based market for a high protein, all natural, easily transportable vegan snack. The success and popularity of Primal Strips over the last 20+ years is a testament to their great flavor and chewy and satisfying “meaty” texture.
