To celebrate its stock-market debut this week, Beyond Meat is giving out free food at several US fast-food chains on Friday. This includes Carl’s Jr, Del Taco, and Bareburger, which sell its meat-free products.

The rules are different at each chain. At Carl’s Jr’s, for example, customers will need to purchase a drink and wish Beyond Meat a happy birthday – the company is now 10 – to be eligible for its free meatless burger.

Beyond Meat is also offering $US3 off its products sold at certain stores.
