Beyond Meat Burgers Are Now Available At This Grocery Store Chain Across Canada

One Canadian grocery store chain has made the Beyond Burger available at their locations across Canada a month before everyone else. Sobeys is the first grocery retailer to sell Beyond Meat in Canada. They announced in a press release that the Beyond Meat burger has been rolled out to all of their Sobeys locations nationwide as of today, Friday, April 26th. 

On Wednesday, Ethan Brown, the founder and CEO of Beyond Meat, announced to the public that the Beyond Meat plant-based burger patty will be available in the meat section of the following Canadian grocery stores by the end of May 2019:

  • Co-op Food Stores

  • Georgia Main Food Group: Fresh Street Market & IGA

  • Loblaws: Fortinos, Maxi and Superstore

  • Longos

  • Metro: Food Basics and Super C

  • Save On Foods: PriceSmart, Urban Fare

  • Sobeys: Foodland, Freshco, IGA, IGA Extra, Price Chopper, Rachelle-Béry, Safeway, Sobeys Urban Fresh and Thrifty Foods

  • Whole Foods Market

Brown also confirmed that by the end of May 2019, the Beyond Meat Burger will also be available at other independent and natural food stores.  Prices are expected to range between $7.49 and $7.99.  

"The Beyond Burger provides the delicious and satisfying experience of a burger but comes with the added health and environmental benefits of plant-based meat and is made without GMOs, soy or gluten," says Brown.  

Whether you're looking to cut meat out of your diet for health reasons, environmental concerns, or to jump on the "plant-based" bandwagon, there's no better time to go meat-free than summer.  And with The Beyond Burger hitting grocery store shelves, you won't be going hungry for meat any time soon.  

Each patty boasts 20g of protein and less total and saturated fat than a regular beef burger.  So if you do the math, you really can't go wrong with the Beyond Burger.
