Del Taco is the second leading quick-service Mexican restaurant chain in the US.

The popular brand has been serving Beyond Meat products since June 2019, with the option to make the burritos vegan by omitting dairy ingredients.

The new releases mark the first time Del Taco has offered completely vegan burritos that include a meat alternative.

Data shows that sales of vegan meat products at food outlets in the US were up 18.4 percent in the first quarter of 2020, with Beyond Meat reporting 51.9 percent growth in the same period.
