Today, Beyond Meat announced the launch of Beyond Breakfast Sausage Links, the newest addition to its sustainable plant-based meat offerings.

Made with a signature blend of savory herbs and spices, Beyond Breakfast Sausage Links do not have GMOs, bioengineered ingredients, synthetic colors, hormones, antibiotics nor cholesterol. The plant-based links have 40% less sodium than traditional pork-based breakfast links.

Beyond Breakfast Sausage Links will launch at grocery stores nationwide throughout October, including select Kroger, AlbertsonsSprouts, Harris Teeter, and Whole Foods Market locations, in the meat aisle with a suggested retail price of $5.99 for eight links.

The plant-based sausage links will be the brand’s fourth new retail product of 2020 following the launch of Beyond Breakfast Sausage Patties, Cookout Classic, and most recently, Beyond Meatballs.

“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, 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 Meat has been experiencing impressive growth in recent months, reaching approximately 112,000 retail and foodservice outlets in 85 countries worldwide after an expansion to Walmart in late September.

Most recently, the company has doubled its retail distribution of its popular frozen Beyond Breakfast Sausage Patties, expanding to select Kroger, Super Target, Walmart, Publix, and Harris Teeter stores.

Demand for plant-based meat has skyrocketed during the pandemic as people have recognized the health benefits of plant-based meat and the public health issues with animal agriculture. In recent months, plant-based companies have been able to expand to new countries and deliver directly to consumers.
