You can now buy vegan Beyond Burgers at Costco. The warehouse store is selling eight plant-based meat patties for $14.99.
It’s the first time the Beyond Burger has been available in a four-pack, which includes eight patties. “That’s right – quadruple the plant-based goodness in one affordable and convenient package,” Beyond Meat noted on its website.
It’s also the first time Beyond Meat has been available at a club store.
What Is the Beyond Burger?
The Beyond Burger is made with pea and mung bean protein. It looks, cooks, and tastes like beef burgers. The patty boasts 20 grams of protein and contains no cholesterol. The burger has helped Beyond Meat become one of the largest vegan meat producers on the planet. In May, the company became the first-ever vegan meat brand to launch an IPO. The start-up’s valuation soon leaped up from $1.2 billion to $3.8 billion.
Vegan Food at Costco
It seems Costco is keen to keep up with the rising demand for plant-based food. Earlier this month, the chain began selling the vegan Awesome Burger made by the Nestlé-owned brand Sweet Earth. The plant-based patty is made with yellow pea protein and wheat gluten. The burger contains more protein and fiber and less saturated fat than beef.
In September, Don Lee Farms’ Better Than Beef burgers also joined Costco’s shelves. The vegan burgers sizzle just like animal-based beef.
“With the lowest calories, fat and saturated fat on the market. We can’t wait to get this burger in more hands as we expand our brand into retail markets,” Danny Goodman, the Head of Development at Don Lee Farms, said in a statement.
Costco also sells Don Lee Farms’ vegan organic and gluten-free burger. When it appeared on store shelves in February, it was sold in the frozen section alongside traditional meat. In less than 60 days, customers had purchased one million of the vegan patties.
It’s not just plant-based meat winning hearts. Costco Canada offers oat milk in bulk. Each package contains 3.5 liters of Silk’s dairy-free milk.
The warehouse chain also has dairy-free coconut yogurt by Riviera, vegan Bounty Bar-style chocolate bars by UNREAL, and plant-based ice cream by So Delicious.
You can find the Beyond Burger at Costco stores in several states, including New York, New Jersey, California, Texas, Florida, Arizona, and Colorado.
