Today, Japan Airlines announced that for a limited time they will offer the popular plant-based Beyond Burger on select routes between March 1st and May 31st, 2020. The product will be available as an à la carte item for JAL’s First Class guests traveling from Los Angeles to Tokyo (Narita/Haneda) and between San Francisco and Tokyo-Haneda. The introduction of the plant-based meal is part of JAL’s overall commitment to sustainability, as the production of the Beyond Burger utilizes less water, land and energy than a standard beef burger. In Wednesday’s announcement, Beyond Meat’s Chief Growth Officer, Chuck Muth said,
“Asia is an important strategic region for Beyond Meat. We’re proud to partner with Japan Airlines to introduce their customers to the delicious taste and texture of the Beyond Burger, while helping to support some of the larger sustainability initiatives through the benefits of our plant-based meats.”
Beyond Burgers are made with ingredients such as peas, mung beans and brown rice (without GMOs, soy or gluten) and provide 20 grams of protein and 32% less saturated fat when compared to a standard beef burger.
