Panda Express Expands Deal With Beyond Meat

Rosemead, California-based Asian food chain Panda Express said this morning that it is expanding an effort it has with El Segundo-based Beyond Meat. According to Panda Express, it will expand its new Beyond The Original Orange Chicken across 70 locations nationwide, after a pilot in New York City and Southern California. The dish uses Beyond's meat alternatives, instead of chicken. Panda Express said the expanded availability of the disk will be for a "limited time". Apparently, the company sold out of the new plant-based dish at its Southern California locations in less than two weeks into its launch.
