Beyond Meat has announced the launch of Beyond Breakfast Sausage links, which aim to deliver the same taste and texture as their pork-based counterpart.
Featuring a blend of savoury herbs and spices, the company’s latest offering is said to contain 40% less sodium than a leading brand of traditional pork breakfast sausage links.
According to Beyond Meat, the plant-based links are free from GMOs, bioengineered ingredients, synthetic colours, hormones, antibiotics and cholesterol.
“With demand for plant-based breakfast options continuing to rise and more of us eating breakfast at home, we knew the segment was ripe for innovation,” said Stuart Kronauge, chief marketing officer at Beyond Meat.
“With the launch of Beyond Breakfast Sausage links, we’re thrilled to introduce another better-for-you plant-based meat option to satisfy consumers’ love of classic breakfast dishes. We think our fans will be excited that they can make restaurant-style breakfast an at-home staple with our new links.”
Beyond Breakfast Sausage links will roll out in grocery stores nationwide in the US, including at select Kroger, Albertsons, Harris Teeter and Whole Foods Market locations, throughout this month.
Sold in the meat case with an RRP of $5.99 for eight links, the new breakfast offering is Beyond Meat’s fourth new retail product of the year. The company’s other 2020 launches include Beyond Breakfast Sausage patties, Cookout Classic and, most recently, Beyond Meatballs.
The plant-based meat producer says that it has recently focused on expanding its breakfast platform, including doubling the retail distribution of its frozen breakfast sausage patties.
