Pizza Hut restaurants in Canada are adding Beyond Meat’s plant-based sausage to their menus permanently, starting Monday.
Nearly a year ago, the pizza chain’s parent company, Yum! Brands, announced an official partnership with Beyond for exclusive meat substitutes for Taco Bell, KFC and Pizza Hut. Monday also marks the official launch of KFC Beyond Fried Chicken in the U.S. Through the partnership, the restaurant giant is hoping to attract customers who are eating less meat but may not want to follow strict vegetarian or vegan diets. At the same time, Beyond aims to find new customers for its products.
