This partnership came into effect as Canadians have shown more interest in plant-based options, specifically meatless alternatives that are fast and tasty.

Jeff Barlow, Mary Brown’s VP of Marketing, said, “We chose to partner with Lightlife because it means everything to us as a brand to serve our Guests plant-based food that meets our extremely high standards for quality and taste.”

Dan Curtin, President of Greenleaf Foods, SPC, said, “Lightlife is committed to making plant-based eating more accessible and is excited to partner with Mary Brown’s to now offer their Guests something they can enjoy without compromise: delicious and satisfying breaded plant-based menu options made with simple ingredients they can feel good about.”

This new addition to Mary Brown’s menu will give customers even more diverse options. This also comes at a perfect time as so many people are trying veganism for Veganuary.

It’s important to note that while these new options are made with plant-based tenders, they are not suitable for everyone. The sauces used in the sandwiches are not vegan and the plant-based chicken tenders are cooked in shared fryers with meat options.
