Beyond Meat products will no longer be sold at Tim Horton’s anymore in Canada. The coffee and doughnut chain had previously carried both a Beyond Meat breakfast sandwich as well as a Beyond Meat burger.
Both items were initially sold at nearly all of the approximately 4,000 locations until last September when the products were reduced to being sold only in Ontario and British Columbia.
“We introduced Beyond Meat as a limited time offer. We are always listening to our guests and testing new products that align to our core menu offerings. We may offer Beyond Meat again in the future,” Tim Hortons said in an e-mailed statement.
This marks the first blip in Beyond Meat’s fast-growing company, the plant-based meat maker currently holds partnerships with Dunkin’ Donuts, Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s in the US They have also just inked a new deal in Canada with Subway as they will take on their meatball subs at locations across the country, according to the National Post.
A spokesperson on behalf of Beyond Meat confirmed that the offer with Tim Horton’s was a limited time promotion and that they may work with them again in the future. Tim Hortons’ parent company, R.B.I. Inc. has not released a statement at this time.
The Joker and Gladiator star Joaquin Phoenix flew to a Washington, DC, in his quest to fight climate change on Friday. Speaking to environmentalists , telling that a protest, he admitted he couldn’t avoid flying to attend the gathering.
“But something that isn’t often talked about in the environmental movement or in the conversation about climate change, is that the meat and dairy industry is the third leading cause of climate change,” said Phoenix in his speech.
“I think sometimes we wonder what can we do in this fight against climate change. And there is something that you can do today, right now, and tomorrow, by making a choice about what you consume. And I think that is something that is doable,” he continued.
“And I struggle so much for what I can do at times, there are things I can’t avoid. I flew a plane out here today, or last night rather. But one thing I can do is change my eating habits. So I just want to urge all of you to join me in that…”
Early this week Pheonix was lampooned for saying he was helping fight climate change by wearing the same tuxedo to different celeb events.
Canadians looking to follow the preaching of Phoenix now have another Vegan option when at McDonald’s, which started offering Canadians its P.L.T. (plant, lettuce, tomato).
Rock n’ Roll legend Meat Loaf announced he will become a vegan recently, stating that he’ll give up his carnivorous habits. Famous for his Bat Out of Hell albums, the singer has joined the Veganuary campaign, a pledge to give up meat and animal products for the month of January according to the Daily Star.
Meat Loaf (Marvin Lee Aday) will be one of many musical celebrities to convert to veganism such as Paul McCartney, Bryan Adams, Ariana Grande and more.
Stars from the silver screen such as Simon Cowell, Benedict Cumberbatch and Natalie Portman are a few among many who switched over to the plant-based diet.
The month-long campaign that is becoming quite a trend was started by Frankie & Benny’s restaurant chain. The chain was happy to have Meat Loaf’s endorsement, even asking him to rebrand himself as Veg Loaf, however he declined.
“When Frankie and Benny’s first approached me to rebrand to Veg Loaf I said no way in hell—I won’t do that.” he said. “But, I’d do anything for our planet and dropping meat for veg, even for just one day a week, can make a huge difference.”
Elise Ash is Frankie & Benny’s director of strategy and brand and put together the promotional video for the campaign. “We wanted to encourage diners to swap meat for veg this January, so who better to sign up than one of the most recognized artists on the planet.” he said. “Funnily enough, our new video isn’t far off the original real-life pitch to Meat.”
“While we couldn’t convince him to rebrand to Veg Loaf, we’re just delighted he’s the headline act for our new vegan menu and helping spread the word on the benefits of tucking into our meat-free dishes.”
The Hollywood Foreign Press Association will be serving its guests a vegan meal this year for its 77th annual Golden Globes according to the Globe and Mail. This initiative is to raise awareness about food consumption and waste with regard to the environment.
“If there’s a way we can, not change the world, but save the planet, maybe we can get the Golden Globes to send a signal and draw attention to the issue about climate change,” HFPA president Lorenzo Soria said. “The food we eat, the way we grow the food we eat, the way we dispose of the food is one of the large contributors to the climate crisis.”
Initially the decision to switch over to a 100 percent plant-based meal was met with pushback from the hotel. The hotel had concerns about a major change only two weeks before the show but eventually, they agreed.
“People were basically saying it’s too late, we’re ready with all the orders, the holidays and all that,” he said. “But after we began discussions, meeting for one or two days, (the hotel) accepted the change completely. They started to experiment with how to do plant-based meals that was not just their symbolic steps, but also something that guests will enjoy.”
Executive Chef for The Beverly Hilton, Matthew Morgan, called the menu change surprising initially but changed his mind after understanding the positive message behind the decision.
“It was a little shocking when first mentioned, because of being very close to the actual Globes and having already decided on a menu,” he said. “But once we thought about it and the message that it sent, we were really excited about it. That’s something I stand behind myself.”
King oyster mushroom scallops and wild mushroom risotto are just a few things on the new menu. The meal will also include roasted baby purple and green Brussels sprouts and carrots as well as a chilled golden beet soup to be served as an appetizer.
Soria has taste-tested the food himself and described it as “excellent.”
Icelandic Glacial has partnered with the Hollywood Foreign Press Association to supply the event with natural spring water that will be served in reusable glass bottles.
The 77th annual Golden Globe Awards ceremony will air on NBC and take place at The Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills, California. The event will be hosted by Ricky Gervais for the fifth time.
