7-Eleven Canada has added plant-based pizzas to the convenience store chain’s “Hot to Go” menu.

The Beyond Meat Pizza is made with 100 per cent plant-based Italian Sausage Crumbles. The “Beyond Sausage and Roasted Veggie Pizza” is available in some Toronto 7-Eleven locations.

The company is hoping its plant-based protein alternative will satisfy demand for more sustainable and humanitarian products, 7-Eleven Canada said in a news release.

“By expanding the fresh food assortment offered to our customers, we hope to provide options for every preference,” says Doug Rosencrans, vice-president and general manager of 7-Eleven Canada.

The Beyond Sausage and Roasted Veggie Pizza is made with Beyond Meat Italian Sausage Crumbles, roasted vegetables and Canadian cheese. It is available in store, as take n’ bake, and in some stores through delivery by Foodora or Uber Eats.

“This partnership marks our entrance into the c-store category and an exciting opportunity to partner with one of the largest global brands,” said Chuck Muth, chief growth officer at Beyond Meat. “Accessibility is a top priority for us and 7-Eleven Canada locations, from urban to rural, are a prominent fixture in all communities.”

7-Eleven is offering 7Rewards members a $5 coupon towards a large Beyond Sausage and Roasted Veggie Pizza.
