Del Taco Introduces Beyond Meat Plant-Based Protein Option



  • by Peter Manley

Del Taco will be introducing the Beyond Tacos on Thursday, April 25th, at all 580 of the food chain’s locations across the country, making them the first Mexican fast food restaurant to offer Beyond Meat’s plant-based product.

If you’ve been longing for a fast food, plant-based taco option, the time is here. Del Taco, which is the second largest Mexican fast food restaurant in the United States, is rolling out their Beyond Tacos for nationwide expansion. The Beyond Taco was created in collaboration with Beyond Meat, one of the largest plant-based food brands in the industry. 

The decision to introduce the Beyond Taco nationwide came after receiving a positive response from the public. John Cappasola, CEO of Del Taco, said, “After receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback from fans during our tests in various parts of the country and across social media, we knew it was time to bring our Beyond Tacos to guests nationwide.” 

Whether you are a vegan, vegetarian, or simply looking to reduce your consumption of meat, you can satisfy your cravings with the new Beyond Taco, which tastes very comparable to the company’s beef tacos, offers the same amount of protein, and is still 100 percent plant-based. 

While the Beyond Taco will be an entirely plant-based menu item, Beyond Meat protein will also be offered as a substitute for meat protein on all current Del Taco menu items, including burritos, nachos, fries, and tacos. Ethan Brown, CEO & Founder of Beyond Meat, said, “Our plant-based crumbles offer the delicious taste, texture, and satisfaction of ground beef while offering the added health and sustainability benefits of plant-based meat. I personally love the Beyond Avocado Taco - it’s a great way to fuel up without feeling weighed down.”
