More than 450 Pizza Hut restaurants in Canada have added Beyond Meat’s plant-based sausage to their menus permanently, as-of yesterday. KFC Beyond Fried Chicken also officially launched yesterday in the U.S. Canada is the second market to offer Beyond Sausage permanently. Pizza Hut restaurants in the United Kingdom added plant-based sausage to their menus in July 2021. Beyond Meat said in a statement that more Canadians are adopting “flexitarian” diets. The topping uses pea protein as a base to mimic the taste and texture of sausage. In addition to adding meatless sausage — including Beyond Italian Sausage Crumbles — to any pizza, customers in Canada will be able to order a flatbread pizza and alfredo dish with the ingredient.
