Betty’s Burgers has welcomed a plant-based addition to its menu, a soy-based patty from All G Foods’ BUDS brand.
Betty’s new Classic Plant burger comprises the BUDS patty, lettuce, tomato, onion, cheese and Betty’s special sauce.
“The Betty’s Classic Plant is based on the signature taste of our number one selling burger – the Betty’s Classic,” said Betty’s Burgers’ managing director, Troy McDonagh. “The only difference is the protein swap. We’re confident this new menu item will be loved by vegetarians and carnivores alike,” he said.
The burger – a permanent addition to the Betty’s menu – can be altered to accommodate vegan consumers, with the option of swapping out the Classic Plant’s milk bun and sauce, and removing the cheese.
“It was incredibly important to us to find a plant-based patty that was incredible in taste and 100 percent Australian made. Other burger restaurants have been quick to bring in plant-based patties from overseas, but we believe our guests will appreciate the fact we’re supporting an Australian business,” McDonagh said.
The partnership with Betty’s Burgers follows last month’s news that All G Foods had secured a multi-million dollar investment from W23, Woolworths’ venture capital fund.
All G Foods’ BUDS patties can be found at more than 300 retail outlets, and a number of new products are under development, including plant-based mince, sausages, nuggets and bacon alternatives, expected to roll-out to retail stores over the next few months.
