Fast-food chain Pizza Hut has welcomed Beyond Meat’s plant-based sausage in five restaurants in Puerto Rico.

On August 10, the eatery will debut two pizza’s featuring Beyond Sausage for a limited time offer – or whilst supplies last.

‘Iconic flavor’

In an online statement, Ana Agrelot, Vice President of Marketing at Encanto Restaurants, the Pizza Hut franchisee in Puerto Rico said: “We are delighted to be the first pizza chain to bring this delicious and nutritious plant-based sausage to the Puerto Rican consumer’s table.

“The Beyond Sausage® Pizza & Beyond Sausage® Veggie Pizza are a great option for customers looking to try plant-based protein without sacrificing the iconic flavor of the traditional meat topping pizza.”

‘Delicious taste’

Beyond Meat’s Chief Growth Officer Chuck Muth added: “We’re excited to take this next step in our partnership with Yum! Brands to offer a plant-based sausage option at an iconic brand like Pizza Hut in Puerto Rico.

“Following successful tests with KFC in the U.S. and China, we’re proud to partner with Pizza Hut in Puerto Rico to introduce local consumers to the delicious taste of Beyond Meat, and further our goal of increasing accessibility to plant-based meat globally.”

Plant Based News has contacted Beyond Meat to see whether the pizza is suitable for vegans, or if it can be veganized
