LOS ANGELES (June 12, 2018) – The Animal Rights National Conference (#AR2018) ( has named Santa Cruz, California-based The Amazing Protein Company as its Official Food provider for this year’s event to be held June 28-July 1 at the Sheraton Gateway Hotel in Los Angeles.

Ranking among the animal rights movement’s leading national events, the Animal Rights National Conference (#AR2018) is established to provide attendees with the latest in animal advocacy, news, and information.

Highlighting The Amazing Protein Company’s Lika® offerings will be several of its newest entrees, including Lika® Orange Chicken, Lika® General Tso’s Chicken, and Lika®’s high protein Vegan eggrolls.

Hailed as a game changer in the burgeoning vegan food category, because of its appeal to vegans and mainstream consumers alike, Amazing Protein Company introduced its Lika® line in partnership with Whole Foods across their Southern Pacific Region in January. Lika® represents the next generation of meat alternatives for the flourishing vegan market. While other vegan-prepared food products must be pre-seasoned due to their inability to absorb flavoring during the cooking process, the revolutionary Lika™ Food Preparation Technology empowers customers to enjoy a wide array of delicious vegan alternatives their way.

Lika® possesses the identical versatility people have come to expect from meat, including the ability to texture it from jerky to stew, utilizing the same diverse cooking methods chefs use for animal protein.  As a result, Lika® foods can be prepared as barbecued, fried, roasted, based, smoked or sautéed. LIka® products absorb flavor even better than animal protein, including sauces marinades and spices – all without any after taste, preservatives or additives. Instead of the 20-35 ingredients in many plant proteins, Lika® is made from only five natural, clean ingredients: wheat, mushroom, barley, yeast, and water.

“We are excited to have The Amazing Protein Company serve as Official Food Provider for the Animal Rights National Conference,” said Jen Riley, Co-Chair of the Animal Rights National Conference.  “The company’s line of Lika®-branded vegan entrees is certain to be a memorable highlight for attendees and we are grateful to The Amazing Protein Company’s CEO and founder Swami Nathan for making Lika® an important part of our event.”

From the California company’s meatballs, BBQ slices, breakfast patties and strips to its meatloaf, Buffalo wing nuggets and Southern Fried Chicken Nuggets, Lika® Heat & Serve foods offer enhanced protein versatility that allows for diverse entrees within any canopy of cuisine – just like their meat counterparts.  At the same time, the texture of Lika® prepared cuisine is meaty yet tender, delicious with no harsh after-taste and completely satisfying without harming one’s health – or the health of the planet.  For the weight-conscious, Lika® foods offer drastically reduced calories, saturated fats and cholesterol over their meat counterparts.   And for the planet, each pound of Lika® product saves 1,800 gallons of water.
