Beyond Meat burgers are finally coming to Canadian grocery stores

You’ll soon be able to buy your own Beyond Meat burgers to grill up at home and it’s just in time for barbecue season.

The popular plant-based patty is coming to a number of Canadian grocery stores on the heals of its successful launch with A&W over the past year.

“Retail is the natural next step for our brand,” said Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat founder and CEO.

“We couldn’t be more excited that just in time for the summer BBQ season, Canadians can now enjoy our burgers at home with friends and family, while receiving the added health and environmental benefits of plant-based meat.”

The plant-based burger is designed to look, cook and satisfy like beef, but it’s made entirely from plants without soy, gluten or GMOs.

Not only does it still boast 20 grams of protein, but it also has less total and saturated fat than a traditional beef burger.

For the growing number of consumers in search of more nutritious and environmentally sustainable protein options, it’s been dubbed as the perfect solution.
