“This plant-based meat is not only amazingly delicious, but it’s also better for you and better for the planet,” adds Kardashian. “It’s a simple change that makes a really big difference. And now that I’m Beyond Meat’s chief taste consultant, there’s never been a better time to go beyond.”
Kardashian is not the first celebrity to advocate for the meat-alternative brand, with Kevin Hart also endorsing the brand this year. Additionally, rival company Quorn recently tapped Drew Barrymore as its ‘chief mom officer’ in a playful campaign.
