“The pizza landscape in Canada is continuously evolving and we have always been an innovation leader at the forefront,” said Pizza Pizza CEO, Paul Goddard. “The launch of the Super Plant Pizza with our plant-based protein options is an exciting moment in our brand history and one that we are very proud of. We will continue to create flexible options to suit all dietary preferences as we look to the future.”
The plant-based protein options have been made possible through a partnership with Yves Veggie Cuisine and Field Roast Grain Meat Co. Both of these brands are popular within the plant-based protein industry.
“Most people personalize their pizza and consumers want options; that’s something we’ve continually offered consumers, putting quality and great taste at the forefront of introducing new options,” said Alyssa Huggins, Vice President, Marketing. “With the launch of the Super Plant Pizza and the plant-based protein options we are responding to our customers’ ever-changing needs, namely the flexitarian movement, but also growth in consumers identifying as vegan or vegetarian.”
