At Beyond Meat, we started with simple questions. Why do you need an animal to create meat? Why can’t you build meat directly from plants? It turns out you can. So we did. We make plant-based meats that allow families to eat more, not less, of the traditional dishes they love, while feeling great about the health, sustainability, and animal welfare benefits of plant protein. Our goal is to bring exciting change to the plate—and Beyond.
Our products are sold in 11,000+ natural and traditional grocery stores nationwide, and we are growing by leaps and bounds. Our investors include Bill Gates, the Twitter founders, Seth Goldman (founder of Honest Tea), and a host of prominent VCs.
We’ve recently developed and launched—to sell-out demand—The
Beyond Burger. It’s a plant-based, raw-beef style burger that looks, cooks, and
tastes so similarly to beef it’s being sold in the meat section of the grocery
store. That’s an industry first. The Beyond Burger is the opening bid in our
Future of Protein vision, whereby we’re inviting retailers and consumers to
reimagine the “meat section” of the grocery store as the “protein section”
where plant-based meat lives side by side with animal based meat.
