Morningstar Farms is a division of the Kellogg Company that produces vegetarian food. Many of their offerings are meatless variations of traditionally meat-based products, including some that are vegan.
Morningstar Farms was introduced by Worthington Foods (originally a division of Miles Laboratories). The frozen food line of soy-based meatless meats, introduced into supermarkets and grocery stores nationwide in 1975 and widely advertised, provided millions of Americans with their first experience of soy used in this way. Kellogg purchased Worthington Foods for $307 million in October 1999 at which point it acquired the Morningstar Farms brand. Kellogg sold Worthington in 2014 but retained the Morningstar line of products.
