Fast-food chain, A&W Canada, is expanding its plant-based options by welcoming Beyond Meat's Beyond Sausages to its menu this month.
Huffington Post Canada reported that Canadian TV personality Jillian Harris announced the release of the plant-based product on her Instagram story.
The vegan sausages, made from mung bean protein, peas, and brown rice, will be available on an English muffin, served with lettuce and tomato.
Beyond sausages have more protein than pork sausages, with 38 percent less saturated fat, and 43 percent less total fat.
"Our belief is that the best way to get people to eat less meat is by giving them what they love–in this case, a juicy delicious sausage – without so many of the health, sustainability, and animal welfare downside of a traditional animal-based sausage," reads Beyond Meat's website.
Last year, the eatery introduced the Beyond Meat Beyond Burger patty to all of its Canadian stores.
Susan Senecal, A&W Canada's President, and Chief Executive Officer, said: "We are a burger-loving company with a lot of firsts, but this is the fastest new-product launch in our history.
"When we tried the Beyond Meat Burger we were amazed with how great it tasted and knew we had to be the first national burger chain to bring it to Canadians across the country."
