Starbucks plans plant-based breakfast sandwich

Reuters — Starbucks Corp. said Tuesday it would introduce a breakfast sandwich this year with a plant-based patty in Canada and the United States.

The coffee chain said last week it aims to add more plant-based food and drinks to its menu as part of the company’s latest plan to become more environmentally friendly.

A company spokeswoman previously declined comment on potential suppliers.

Over the past year, with the rise of companies including Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, “plant-based” has become a food industry buzzword and several major brands and restaurants have raced to offer such products.
