According to a new CNBC story, Canadian chain Tim Hortons has struck a deal with JUST Inc. to start selling the company’s plant-based eggs in select restaurants — making it the first major fast-food chain to take a chance on the chicken-less eggs.
However, don’t expect to see the plant-based eggs showing up in any of the chain’s muffins or Timbits: JUST Inc. does not recommend using them for baking.
This isn’t Tim Hortons’ first foray into plant-based meat.
In a statement shared with CNBC, Tim Hortons spokeswoman Jane Almeida also didn’t rule out adding more alt-meat foods to the menu — another sign that the plant-based protein revolution may be just beginning.
