US-based plant-based meat company Beyond Meat has announced the launch of what it says is its ‘hottest’ burger to date, the jalapeño burger.

The burger is out now chilled in 280 Sainsbury’s and 280 Tesco shops, and available online from Ocado. It will launch frozen in another 200 Sainsbury’s and 200 Tesco shops from 6 June. It has an RRP of £4.30 for two patties.
