An image circulated online suggests that North American fast-food giant A&W is set to launch the plant-based Beyond Burger at some locations.
The suspicion-raising photograph pictures a 'company roadmap', which includes information not yet officially disclosed to the public.
On the 'roadmap', July 9 is indicated as Beyond Meat launch day - with the note 'time to switch into high gear'.
With over 2,000 estimated locations across the US and Canada, the chain has been massively popular since its launch in 1919.
No official announcement has been made by the chain at this time.
