Harvey's introduces the best-tasting flame-grilled plant-based burger
by adding Lightlife® Burger to its core menu
TORONTO, Sept. 3, 2019 /CNW/ - Greenleaf Foods, SPC, the parent company of Lightlife Foods ("Lightlife®"), and Harvey's Canada, today announced that the Lightlife® Burger will be available at all 292 Harvey's restaurants across Canada. The new plant-based burger, which is prepared in Canada, becomes a feature menu item at Harvey's, allowing Canadians to select the flame-grilled patty when customizing their burger.
The Lightlife Burger at Harvey's is a 3.5-ounce patty made with 18 grams of plant-based protein. Unlike other plant-based burgers, the Lightlife Burger has no GMOs, soy or gluten and is made with fewer and more familiar ingredients—such as beets and pea protein—that Canadians can trust.
"Harvey's has a long history—over 60 years—of proudly serving Canadians great-tasting burgers," said Dave Colebrook, Chief Operating Officer of Harvey's Canada. "Adding the Lightlife Burger to our menu reflects our commitment to quality, Canadian-made products and provides our guests with more access to healthy and delicious options to make their burger a beautiful thing."
This partnership, born from Lightlife and Harvey's shared Canadian heritage, provides guests more access to great-tasting plant-based foods. Now Canadians can enjoy the Lightlife Burger, just the way they like it, by ordering through the Harvey's mobile app or in person at any Harvey's restaurant.
"Teaming up with Harvey's, Canada's beloved burger brand since 1959, is a proud moment for us. As two pioneers in our respective industries, we're excited to introduce more Canadians to the delicious Lightlife Burger and plant-based eating," said Dan Curtin, President and CEO of Greenleaf Foods. "The Lightlife Burger is everything you crave from a traditional beef burger but made of plants."
