In March, Starbucks will introduce a new plant-based sandwich with Beyond Meat patty in its stores across Canada for the first time.
The sandwich will join the chain’s permanent breakfast menu in all of its Canadian locations.
Both companies have worked together to develop the recipe that would suit the Starbucks customers.
Although, the new item comes with a plant-based patty, it is not suitable for vegans.
The sandwich features a plant-based patty from Beyond Meat, topped with cheddar cheese and egg on an artisanal bun.
The news comes after Starbucks announced its sustainability commitment last year. Starbucks said it planned to offer more plant-based options on its menu because the meat was the highest contributor to its carbon and water footprints through 2018.
Starbucks is the latest chain to partner with Beyond Meat. Since it went public in May 2019, Beyond Meat has announced partnerships with Subway, Del Taco, KFC, Dunkin’ Brands, Denny’s and others.
