A new development has been made, bringing the plant-based sector and foodservice operators ever closer. Recently, Beyond Meat® and Pizza Hut® announced a new alliance in their global partnership. In turn, new menu items were born, as irresistible plant-based protein dishes are now available to consumers in Canada. Pizza Hut fans in the west end of the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Edmonton can order three new crave-able offerings featuring Beyond Italian Sausage™ Crumble.

Hameed Jagani, Vice President of Global Strategic Partnerships, Beyond Meat®“We’re thrilled to bring Canadians increased access to delicious and satisfying plant-based protein as the latest extension of our global partnership with Pizza Hut. The addition of Beyond Italian Sausage to Pizza Hut’s local menus enables consumers to continue eating the things they love, like pizza, without having to compromise on taste, health, or sustainability,” said Hameed Jagani, VP of Global Strategic Partnerships, Beyond Meat.

The new Beyond Meat topping is exclusive to Pizza Hut available in Mississauga, Etobicoke, Milton, and Oakville in addition to Edmonton. Beyond Italian Sausage is made with simple, plant-based ingredients and is designed to deliver the meat-like flavor and juicy texture of Italian pork sausage with the added nutritional and environmental benefits of plant-based protein.
