A&W Canada Launches Beyond Meat Chicken Nuggets


EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Beyond Meat is expanding its partnership with A&W Canada for the launch of plant-based chicken nuggets today to meet consumers’ changing needs and preferences for plant-based proteins.

Beyond Meat and A&W Canada first partnered in 2018 to debut the popular Beyond Meat Burger. Like the burger, Beyond Meat Nuggets are made from simple, plant-based ingredients with no GMOs, antibiotics, hormones or cholesterol.

“Beyond Meat Nuggets couldn’t come at a more perfect time,” says Deanna Jurgens, Chief Growth Officer, Beyond Meat. “We’ve doubled down on plant-based chicken this summer, just as consumer demand for chicken is skyrocketing. Following the success of our partnership on the Beyond Burger, we’re proud to be working with A&W Canada to debut Beyond Meat Nuggets in Canada.”

“Many Canadians are looking for plant-based options, but they don’t want to compromise on taste,” says Tom Newitt, vice-president of Marketing, A&W Canada. “We’ve been on a search for the best, most delicious plant-based nugget and are excited for our guests to try our new Beyond Meat Nuggets. We think nugget lovers will be very impressed.”

In recent weeks, Beyond Meat marked another important milestone with the launch of Beyond Chicken Tenders in the U.S. and continues to diversify menus.

Customers will be able to order Beyond Meat Nuggets from all A&W Canada locations for a limited time at restaurant, drive thru, A&W mobile app and third-party delivery apps. The nuggets will be available as a six- or 10-piece order, as well as an option for the A&W Kids’ Pack.
