Starbucks to Launch Plant-Based Breakfast Sandwich This Year
Starbucks is planning to introduce a breakfast sandwich made with a plant-based patty in the U.S. and Canada later this year.
The coffee chain said it is aiming at adding more plant-based food and drinks to its menu as they move to become more environmentally friendly as a company. In a recent statement, Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson shared five sustainability commitments they plan to implement: increasing plant-based options, converting to reusable packaging, investing in regenerative agriculture, improving waste management, and developing more eco-friendly stores and operations.
“As we approach the 50th anniversary of Starbucks in 2021, we look ahead with a heightened sense of urgency and conviction that we must challenge ourselves, think bigger and do much more in partnership with others to take care of the planet we share,” Johnson said.
Currently, their plant-based options include most of their drinks, which can easily be made vegan by choosing one of their dairy-free milk options and avoiding their whipped cream, java chips, protein powder, and caramel drizzle. They also have a fair selection of vegan food options, which include items like salads, bowls, baked goods, and some packaged snack items.
