Plant-based company Beyond Meat is to serve its vegan burgers and sausages at schools, hospitals, baseball stadiums, and other businesses.

The meatless brand has joined forces with food service provider Aramark – who serves nearly two billion meals annually. 

Aramark’s new dishes include a Carribean-style burger, a gumbo bowl, and hotdogs – all of which uses Beyond Meat’s plant-based products. 

‘Unique meatless options’

According to Fox Business, Hiedi Hogan, Vice President of Product Development and Culinary Innovation for Aramark, said: “The trick for us is to develop and offer unique meatless options that taste great and appeal to consumers who might want to try something new and those who follow plant-forward diets.

“Early on, we understood that consumer preferences were driving a need for quality plant-forward offerings and our culinary team has been working with a broad range of plant-based products to create more enticing menu choices.”

Impossible Foods

Beyond Meat’s competitor Impossible Foods recently partnered with Aramark’s rival food service provider, Sodexo.

The plant-based Impossible Burger is said to be available in around 1,500 colleges, hospitals, and corporate cafeterias across the US starting this fall. 

“Plant-based is a pretty big strategy for us,” said Rob Morasco, Senior Director of Culinary Development at Sodexo.

“More plant on the plate really is the number one trend we’re seeing.”
