Carl's Jr launches vegan Beyond Meat burgers
(Reuters) - Plant-based meat company Beyond Meat said on Wednesday burger chain Carl's Jr would add the firm's vegan imitation meat to its menu, the latest big-name restaurant chain to tweak its offerings to attract vegans and vegetarians.
Los Angeles-based Beyond Meat, which counts actor Leonardo Di Caprio and Microsoft Corp founder Bill Gates as investors, sells plant-based burger patties and sausages, heat-and-eat meals and non-GMO foods at grocery chains such as Amazon.com Inc's Whole Foods Market and Kroger Co.
