Beyond Meat, Inc., a leader in plant-based meat, announced it is significantly increasing the availability of its Beyond Chicken Tenders at leading retail outlets across the country, including supermarkets, pharmacies and club stores.
Beyond Chicken Tenders are now available at select Albertsons, CVS, Sprouts and Whole Foods Market stores nationwide, and are expanding into all Kroger banners throughout April.
Beyond Chicken Tenders deliver the crispy, juicy and flavorful chicken tender experience consumers know and love, with the added nutritional and environmental benefits of plant-based meat. Made from simple, plant-based ingredients, Beyond Chicken Tenders have 50% less saturated fat than the leading brand of traditional breaded chicken nuggets, and no antibiotics, hormones or cholesterol. The protein in Beyond Chicken Tenders is derived from the nutrition-packed faba bean, an optimal ingredient for replicating the taste and texture of traditional chicken tenders.
“Building on the positive momentum of our recent chicken launches, we’re excited to significantly expand the availability of our Beyond Chicken Tenders by showing up in more places for our consumers – from their favorite supermarket or drugstore, to large warehouse clubs – making delicious, nutritious and sustainable plant-based meat more accessible than ever before,” said Deanna Jurgens, chief growth officer, Beyond Meat.
Beyond Chicken Tenders come pre-cooked, ready-to-heat in the air fryer, oven or microwave for a crowd-pleasing meal that’s ready in under 10 minutes.
Beyond Chicken Tenders were first introduced in 22021 and the National Restaurant Association Show awarded Beyond Chicken Tenders its prestigious 2021 FABI Food and Beverage award.
