Beyond Meat‘s Beyond Breakfast Sausage Patties are set to hit shelves in an additional 5,000 grocery stores across the U.S by the end of September – doubling the product’s distribution.

The frozen plant-based patties – which offer a meat-free alternative to pork breakfast sausage patties – are expanding to select Kroger, Super Target, Walmart, Publix, and Harris Teeter stores.

According to Beyond Meat, the sausages have 11g of protein per serving (two patties), and 50 percent less total fat and 35 percent less saturated fat and sodium than a leading brand of pork breakfast sausage patties.

‘Overwhelmingly positive response’

In a statement sent to Plant Based News, Chuck Muth, chief growth officer, Beyond Meat, said: “Following the initial release of our Beyond Breakfast Sausage Patties at retailers earlier this year, we heard an enthusiastic and overwhelmingly positive response from consumers who asked for increased availability.

“We’re thrilled to be able to make delicious and nutritious plant-based meat with no GMOs more available nationwide, giving our consumers another convenient option to Go Beyond any time of day.”

With the latest roll-out, Beyond Meat’s products are available at approximately 112,000 retail and foodservice outlets in 85 countries worldwide
