Starbucks has already reopened its coffee shops and stores in China after the Coronavirus numbers started to decrease. Now it has plans to enhance its Chinese menus with vegan/plant-based dishes.
On April 20th the Starbucks Corp representatives announced that the launch of the new meals is scheduled for this week. Chinese customers will be able to order pasta and other dishes made with Beyond Meat’s plant-based beef products and pork alternative ingredients of Omnipork reports Reuters.
Starbucks will also offer non-dairy lattes made with oatmeal milk.
Beyond Meat is hoping to use Starbucks as a starting point to conquer the Asian market. The brand is planning to expand its presence through Chinese social media platforms Weibo and WeChat, and to launch a Chinese-language site.
