Vegan Lizzo says the launch of plant-based Jamaican patties featuring Beyond Meat is basically ‘the best day of [her] life’.

The musician – whose real name is Melissa Viviane Jefferson – explicitly made the comments in recent Instagram Stories.

She was celebrating the launch of Golden Krust‘s new patties. They have launched in Golden Krust Caribbean Restaurants. Moreover, they have launched in over 1,000 U.S grocery stores on the east coast.

“We are excited to share this innovation with consumers seeking plant-based protein options.”

Another key point Hawthorne made was that: “We still expect the authentic taste our fans love.”

Tim Smith is vice president of foodservice sales North America at Beyond Meat.

He added: “We’re excited to partner with Golden Krust. We especially appreciate their trust in us to deliver delicious plant-based protein options to their loyal customers.”

Furthermore, he described the use of the company’s vegan meat in the patties as ‘exciting for us at Beyond Meat’.
