Sacha du Plessis, group head of marketing at Spur, says it took 18 months for the restaurant chain to develop the new menu.

The menu will feature the Beyond Burger, a plant-based protein burger popular around the world, selling at R129,90.

Du Plessis says there's been a boost in sales and positive feedback on social media since the big reveal.

To avoid cross-contamination, plant-based patties will be cooked on a separate skillet on the grill, Du Plessis explains.

The brand is transforming and we are catering to our market.
