Nine Beyond Meat Menu Items Roll Out At All 100 Locations
TORONTO, Oct. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Canada’s most popular Mediterranean fast, fresh eatery Osmow’s™ has officially introduced Beyond Meat
plant-based protein across its menu in all locations after receiving overwhelmingly positive feedback when it was first introduced in select restaurants last fall.
Renowned for its delicious shawarma specialties, the fast-casual restaurant marries Beyond Beef
, a 100% plant-based ground designed to deliver the taste, texture and versatility of ground beef, with its signature offerings to present nine menu items across all of its 100 locations.
“Canadians are increasingly looking for healthier and more sustainable protein options, with a growing consumer segment now identifying as flexitarians. Whether guests are vegan, vegetarian, or carnivores looking to reduce their meat consumption, we are delighted to bring this perfect mealtime solution to the table in partnership with Beyond Meat,” says Osmow’s Founder, Sam Osmow.
Beyond Meat products are made from simple, plant-based ingredients like peas, mung beans and rice. The plant-based ground used in Osmow’s shawarma is made without GMOs, soy, gluten, synthetic colours and flavours or bioengineered ingredients, and has 35% less saturated fat than regular beef.
“At our core, Beyond Meat is about enabling consumers to Eat What You Love™ , without sacrifice. Our partnership with Osmow’s is a perfect example of that with nine delicious items featuring plant-based protein, offering even more choices for Canadian consumers,” says Tim Smith, Vice President of Food Service Sales, North America, Beyond Meat.
The Beyond Meat menu items on the Osmow’s menu include:
– finely marinated plant-based shawarma, made from Beyond Meat, is grilled to perfection, served on an all-Canadian poutine with Osmow’s famous sauces.

Founded in 2001 by Sam Osmow, the first Osmow’s store was located in Streetsville, Ontario, Canada and remains a successful operation to this day. Sam saw an opportunity to bring his Egyptian roots to the Canadian landscape blending traditional Egyptian cuisine balanced with a North American palate. Filling a void in the current fast-casual culinary marketplace, Osmow’s flavourful dishes with signature sauces such as the fan-favourite garlic sauce keeps bringing customers back to satisfy their cravings. Osmow’s has grown to 100 locations and is expanding across Canada. Osmow’s also recently declared October 15 as National Shawarma Day in Canada, inviting all other Mediterranean brands to celebrate the occasion as it continues to grow this exciting flavourful food niche, in the spirit of diversity and cultural exploration.
