Plant-based “meats” soaring

Plant-based meats are growing by leaps and bounds with two more big announcements Monday.

Subway said it will start offering Beyond Meat’s meatballs in its sandwiches in September. It has more outlets than any other fast-food chain: a total of 685 across Canada and the United States.

Smithfield Foods, the world’s largest hog producer and pork packer, said it is launching a new line of soybean-based products under its Pure Farmland brand, including burgers, meatballs and breakfast patties.
