Canada - We’re Coming to the Meat Case!
April 23, 2019
You’ve sent love. You’ve been patient. And you’ve been heard.
Canada, the wait is almost over…. WE’RE COMING TO THE MEAT CASE!
That’s right, folks! For the first time ever, our neighbors and friends to the North will be able to purchase the Beyond Burger at Canadian retail stores nationwide. Don’t drop everything and run to the store just yet-- arriving in time for the summer BBQ season, the Beyond Burger will be available for purchase by the end of May at Co-op Food Stores, Fresh Street Market, IGA, Loblaws, Longos, Metro, Save On Foods, Sobeys, Whole Foods Market and more.
“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,” says Founder and CEO Ethan Brown.
There’s no better way to kick off summer than grilling up a juicy Beyond Burger with all the fixings. And while the classic combo of lettuce, ketchup, and pickles is a guaranteed delight, try out some creative twists, like the Spring Burger, Nacho Burger, or the BBQ Ranch Burger. The sky’s the limit, so it’s time to get creative!
Unlike traditional grill outs, you don’t have to sacrifice your health for delicious food with the Beyond Burger. Made entirely from plants without soy, gluten or GMOs, the Beyond Burger packs a whopping 20g of protein, with less total & saturated fat than a traditional beef burger. That’s just the tip of the iceberg, we could go on about the environmental benefits too, but you can read more on that here.
Hungry yet? Stay tuned for announcements from your favorite local retailers alerting you to the Beyond Burger’s arrival on-shelf at more than 3,000 locations nationwide.
