World’s first plant-based patty expands across Golden Krust restaurants and into retail channel
NEW YORK, NY, October 23, 2020 /Neptune100/ — After a successful market test at Golden Krust® Company-operated restaurants, the world’s first plant-based Jamaican patty made with Beyond Meat® is expanding across the Golden Krust Caribbean Restaurant system and into the grocery retail channel.
“We are proud to partner with Beyond Meat to produce a plant-based protein patty with all the heritage of our Jamaican family recipe.” says Haywood Hawthorne President, Retail of Golden Krust, “We are excited to share this innovation with consumers seeking plant-based protein options and still expect the authentic taste our fans love.”
Golden Krust Jamaican patties made with Beyond Meat were well received at select Golden Krust restaurants this summer. Supported by an integrated marketing campaign, this innovative plant-based offering will be sold in over 100 Golden Krust restaurants and more than 1,000 supermarkets, initially along the East coast, starting today. We anticipate many more retailers will offer our growing “better for you” Jamaican patty line over the coming months.
