Beyond Chicken Tenders are now available at select Albertsons, CVS, Sprouts and Whole Foods Market stores nationwide, and are expanding into all Kroger banners throughout April.

Beyond Chicken Tenders, which come pre-cooked and ready-to-heat in the air fryer, oven or microwave, have 50% less saturated fat than the leading brand of traditional breaded chicken nuggets. They contain no GMOs, antibiotics, hormones or cholesterol and derive their protein from the nutrition-packed faba bean.
