Starbucks and Impossible are making a plant-based breakfast sandwich
Starbucks is also going to offer similar products in Canada and China
Starbucks is going to launch a new plant-based breakfast option starting next week, as part of the company's plan to gradually transition to a sustainable menu made of plant-based milk and meat alternatives. The new sandwich was created in partnership with Impossible Foods, a company that specializes in environmentally friendly meat products. In fact, Starbucks is working to offer similar plant-based meals and sandwiches in Canada and China with the help of Beyond Meat, an LA-based producer of meat substitutes and a competitor of Impossible.
The sandwich consists of cage-free fried egg and aged cheddar cheese, and an Impossible sausage of course, served with ciabatta bread. The sandwich is going to be available "in most U.S. locations", Starbucks said. The sandwich is going to be priced between $4.95 and $5.25.
As part of the new summer menu, the company is also going to introduce a new type of cold-brew coffee beverage, served with almond milk foam and flavored with either dark cocoa or cinnamon and, in California and the Midwest, Starbucks is also going to launch a Cinnamon Oatmilk variant for said beverage, priced between $4.45 and $4.75.
