Beyond Meat was founded in 2009 with the aim of creating a high-protein, future-proof vegetable-based range, to deliver a positive impact on health, climate change.

Pea protein is the main ingredient of the burger, while coconut oil and starch are also used in order to give the product its texture and taste.

Coop offers an assortment of more than 600 vegan products, including several vegetable alternatives to meat, fish and cheese, ESM writes.
