The world’s largest plant-based smokehouse: Carolina Smokehouse

Vegan meat brand Barvecue will open the Carolina Smokehouse in North Carolina, in July 2021, the world’s largest plant-based smokehouse. Located in Cornelius, NC, the 10,000-square-foot facility will have the initial capacity of producing 800,000 pounds of the brand’s meats, including Pulled BVQ (vegan barbecue pork with original sauce), Chopped BVQ (a gluten-free version of the Pulled BVQ), and Naked versions of both (lightly seasoned with no sauce).

Lee Cooper, Barvecue Founder & CEO, said: “As we grow to keep up with the demand for Barvecue products, we decided that it was time to expand production and lead the way in the plant-based barbecue market”.

Founded in 2017 with a mission to create the world’s best-tasting plant-based barbecue meats, Barvecue’s growth is supported by a $2 million investment it raised from mission-driven investors last year, which it plans to increase by an additional $1 million capital raise this year.
