The Beyond Burger has 20g of plant protein derived from a blend of peas, mung beans and brown rice. HelloFresh’s Goudalicious Beyond Burgers™ are topped with a caramelized onion jam, creamy aioli, melted gouda, and served with seasoned potato wedges.
“We’re very pleased to partner with HelloFresh to bring the Beyond Burger to more families across North America,” said Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat Founder & CEO. “We know that tasting is believing, and this partnership will enable more consumers to experience the meaty taste and juicy texture of the Beyond Burger while enjoying the added nutritional and environmental benefits of consuming plant-based protein.”
