TORONTO — Quesada Burritos & Tacos is launching the Beyond Meat Burrito made with Beyond Meat’s Feisty Crumbles, which will be available at nearly 120 restaurants across Canada.
“More of our customers are identifying as flexitarians and requesting plant-based options, so we’re thrilled to be Canada’s first Mexican chain to offer the Beyond Meat Burrito,” says Steve Gill, founder and Chief Recipe Officer, Quesada Burritos and Tacos. “Beyond Meat’s Feisty Crumbles perfectly replace animal protein with plant protein that’s juicy and satisfying to anyone — no matter their dietary preferences.”
Quesada’s house-made recipe for the Beyond Meat burrito combines an authentic blend of Mexican flavours with the heat of habanero pepper. Quesada’s Beyond Meat Burrito can be customized with an array of options, including homemade Mexican slaw, guacamole and made-fresh-daily Mexican salsas.
Beyond Meat’s 100-per-cent plant-based Feisty Crumbles are made from pea protein. The product is the only gluten-free and soy-free crumble on the market, with half the saturated fat of ground beef and no cholesterol or antibiotics.
“We pride ourselves in creating delicious, sustainable protein for the center of the plate that enables consumers to continue eating what they love, in this case satisfying tacos and burritos, while enjoying the health and environmental benefits of plant-based meat,” says Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat founder & CEO. “We’re excited to expand our Canadian presence by partnering with Quesada.”
