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.

‘Launch day’

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.
