North Vancouver-based fast food chain A&W Canada keeps finding new ways to freshen up how they do business. They’ve done everything from phasing out disposable plastic straws to putting a super-popular plant-based burger on the menu, but stuff is getting REAL now.
A&W Canada has cut the cheese. Processed cheese, that is.
A&W Canada announced that as of October 1, they’d be ditching the fake stuff and putting cheese made from 100% Canadian milk on their burgers.
“What’s better than a Teen Burger topped with real Canadian Cheddar?” said Susan Senecal, A&W Canada’s President and Chief Executive Officer in a media release.
Some (non-vegans) might argue that putting a slice of cheese on a Beyond Burger, the just-returned plant-based patty with a demand that far outpaced the supply, is actual even better, but that’s not what Senecal was getting at.
“We believe that sourcing simple, great-tasting ingredients, farmed with care is the right thing to do,” adds Senecal. “Serving real cheese instead of processed cheese was the logical, and delicious, next step.”
A&W uses cheese not just on their burgers, but also on their breakfast sandwiches and on their poutine, too.
