Starbucks to Launch Beyond Meat Breakfast Sandwich at Select Locations
Multinational coffee company Starbucks has made good on its promise to add plant-based meat to its menu! On March 3, Starbucks will launch a breakfast sandwich made with egg, cheese, and a Beyond Meat patty at over 1,400 locations in Canada. While the sandwich is not vegan, this marks the first time Starbucks has offered a plant-based meat option.
Beyond Meat CEO Ethan Brown told Yahoo Finance:
We’re thrilled that Starbucks is introducing the Beyond Meat breakfast sandwich as a core menu item at all stores across Canada. We believe the offering delivers on our promise of enabling consumers to Eat What You Love while also enjoying the nutritional and environmental benefits of plant-based protein. We greatly appreciate Starbucks’ collaboration and shared vision around the launch.
While we still don’t know when the sandwich will appear in the States, the chief operating officer for Starbucks confirmed in January that the company would launch plant-based meat in both Canada and the United States this year.
Recently, Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson announced the company’s new commitment to sustainability, which includes increasing plant-based options to create a more environment-friendly menu. Johnson stated:
As we approach the 50th anniversary of Starbucks in 2021, we look ahead with a heightened sense of urgency and conviction that we must challenge ourselves, think bigger and do much more in partnership with others to take care of the planet we share. Today, I’m excited to be able to share with you our commitment to pursue a bold, multi-decade aspiration to become resource positive and give more than we take from the planet.
Hungry for some quick and easy vegan breakfast options? Here are three tasty choices:
Beyond Sausage Burrito from Carl’s Jr.
Words can barely express how delicious this Carl’s Jr. burrito is. The satisfying breakfast item comes with Beyond Meat sausage, hash browns, egg, cheese, and salsa, all wrapped in a warm tortilla—just ditch the egg and cheese to make it vegan. But hurry! Carl’s Jr. serves breakfast only until 10:30 a.m.
Beyond Sausage Sandwich from Dunkin’
With a simple hack, the Beyond Sausage Sandwich at Dunkin’ is a fantastic breakfast option. First, hold the cheese and egg and order a side of hash browns. Second, add the hash browns to the sandwich, pile on the ketchup, and enjoy!
French Toast Sticks from Burger King
Burger King’s tasty French Toast Sticks are accidentally vegan! Just dip them in syrup and your day will be a little sweeter.
