Village Gourmet’s Fabrique Délices Partners with Prime Roots

BERKELEY, CA–September 28, 2023— Artisanal French charcuterie maker Fabrique Délices today
announced its partnership with Prime Roots® to make their proprietary recipe and distribute its first line of
plant-based koji-pâtés, and koji-foie gras. In addition, a newly designed 23-ounce tub will be available for
food service riding the fast-growing plant-based charcuterie trend. The koji-foie gras is the only legal
plant-based foie gras able to be served in restaurants in the state of California.
Rich savory Prime Roots X Fabrique Délices flavors include plant-based Black Truffle and Harvest Apple
Koji-Pâtés infused with black truffle and studded with apple and hints of sage, respectfully, and butter
smooth Koji-Foie Gras. Prime Roots Koji-Foie Gras recently won an editors’ choice ‘Nexty’ for
inventiveness at Natural Products Expo East. Developed in collaboration with Michelin Star chefs, the
products offer a delicious and meatless alternative to pâtés and foie gras that is indistinguishable from the
conventional version.

“Prime Roots uses a culinary forward approach in everything we make,” said Kimberlie Le, Co-founder,
and CEO of Prime Roots, “and partnering with the premier maker of French-style pâtés, Fabrique Délices
made sense to provide the most rich, smooth, and delicious offerings.”
“We’re excited to introduce traditional French delicacies like pâté, and foie gras to plant-based
consumers” said Sébastien Espinasse, President, and Founder of Fabrique Délices, “and partnering with
the pioneer of koji-based products, Prime Roots allows us to take an innovative and sustainable approach
to developing plant-based products.”
Prime Roots is the first and only company tackling the deli and charcuterie case with freshly-sliced deli
meat and charcuterie, pâtés, and foie gras made from koji. All products are plant-based, gluten and soy
free, non-GMO, no nitrates, antibiotics, or top nine allergens.
