Minneapolis, MN (June 1, 2023) – Safer Plate is now Liam’s. Founded in 2019, the company originally focused on meal kits, but soon realized a greater need based on feedback from customers for a quick, more versatile option. Liam’s offers four frozen meals, all free of the top allergens and is available in over 100 grocery stores across the country.
The Twin Cities-based company was born out of necessity. Liam’s Co-founder and CEO, Angie Nelson, is mom to a son, Liam, who lives with a handful of food allergies. Angie quickly learned how difficult it can be to find options fit for the whole family.
More than a meal
“Our commitment to allergen friendly meals stays the same, even though our delivery and name has changed,” said Angie Nelson, Liam’s CEO. “The shift to frozen meals was made based on feedback from our loyal customers. These meals add a layer of flexibility for our food allergen fams – for dinner time, on-the-go, or wherever you’ve got a microwave.”
While Liam’s lineup currently consists of four options, more are on the way. They’re all free of the most common food allergens, and produced in a dedicated kitchen, so families don’t have to worry about cross-contamination, reading labels, contacting manufacturers, or second-guessing.
To bring Liam’s to life and provide delicious, nutritious and family-friendly meals, Nelson partnered with Head Chef Gilbert Junge, formerly head of Mayo Clinic’s specialty care meal program. Together, the team works to carefully create and test each recipe, ensuring every option is safe for those with food allergies and intolerances.
“While we’re creating meals without the top allergens, we utilize unique and fresh ingredients to ensure that our meals taste like they are not “without” anything,” said Junge. “With our shift to frozen meals, you can continue to taste the difference of quality ingredients.”
