Tim Hortons is market testing the mung bean-based egg omelettes, which can be ordered atop breakfast sandwiches. Plant-based eggs are gaining momentum in the food industry with US company Just Egg sealing a deal this week with Canadian coffee chain Tim Hortons.
The brand is planning a nationwide rollout in the coming weeks.
Andrew Noyes, Spokesman of JUST, said, “Canada is one of the most requested markets for Just and we’re excited to be able to offer our product at select Tim Hortons locations for this market test.”
Jane Almeida, Spokeswoman of Tim Hortons, stated, “We are always listening to our guests and testing a wide variety of potential products in select restaurants across the country. As you know, we recently introduced our Beyond Meat breakfast sandwiches and Beyond Burger. As we continue to test and get feedback, we will consider expanding plant-based options into other menu items.”
Tim Hortons started offering meat substitutes last year when it partnered with Beyond Meat to launch the Beyond Burger to its menu.
