BEYOND MEAT® AND PIZZA HUT® INTRODUCE TASTY NEW PIZZA RANGE IN GERMANY
October 6, 2022
Available nationwide for a limited time only, Pizza Hut® launches Beyond Meat® Pizzas to bring delicious plant-based protein toppings to the market, responding to consumer demand for more plant-based products
Munich, October 6, 2022 - Beyond Meat, Inc., a global leader in plant-based meat, and Pizza Hut® today announced the launch of an innovative new Beyond Meat® Pizza range in Germany. Designed to appeal to meat-lovers, flexitarians and vegetarians alike, the new plant-based protein pizza toppings provide fans with even more delicious and sustainable options, and are available now for a limited time at all participating Pizza Hut locations (dine-in and delivery) across Germany, while supplies last.
The two iconic brands have come together to create three deliciously tasty new pizzas that feature Beyond Beef Crumbles and Beyond Italian Style Sausage. These plant-based protein pizza toppings have been carefully developed to offer the same taste, texture and flavor profile as traditional meat toppings. Beyond Meat pizzas are the perfect option for those who want the juicy, meaty experience but with the added lifestyle and environmental benefits of plant-based protein.
Beyond Meat Pizzas will bring new and exciting flavor combinations to Pizza Hut’s menu:
- Beyond Meat® & Cheese Lover’s: Plant-based Beyond Beef Crumbles, Beyond Italian Style Sausage, mozzarella, cheddar, feta cheese, red onions, mushrooms, tomato sauce.
- Beyond Meat® Italian Supreme: Plant-based Beyond Italian Style Sausage, mozzarella, pepper-mix, red onions, mushrooms, tomato sauce.
- Beyond Meat® Beef-Style Sizzler: Plant-based Beyond Beef Crumbles, mozzarella, red onions, peppers, tomato sauce.
The pizza toppings were developed in response to the growing customer demand for more plant-based options. Both Pizza Hut and Beyond Meat recognise the importance and benefits of having more diverse protein options.
Jorg Oostdam, General Manager Europe, Beyond Meat said, “We’re aware that German consumers are hungry for more plant-based options and are increasingly gravitating towards a flexitarian diet. That’s why we’re thrilled to be partnering up with Pizza Hut Germany to introduce a delicious new Beyond Meat pizza range that lets people continue to eat what they love, no sacrifice required.”
Matthias Kern, Brand President at Pizza Hut Germany, said: “We're delighted to be partnering up with Beyond Meat, the pioneers of plant-based meat, to diversify our offerings and bring delicious new innovations to Pizza Hut fans. Customers across Germany can now find more flexitarian and plant-based options on our menu which taste just as great as our classics!"
This announcement comes as part of a larger, global strategic partnership between Pizza Hut and Beyond Meat and builds upon previous announcements in the UK, Canada, Belgium, Guatemala, El Salvador, Singapore and beyond.
