Starbucks Corp has said that it is planning to introduce a breakfast sandwich with a plant-based patty in the United States and Canada this year.
Last week, the coffee chain said that it is aiming to add more plant-based food and drinks to its menu as part of its latest plan to become more environmentally friendly.
A company spokeswoman previously declined to comment on potential suppliers.
