Kitchen Prep

Company Description

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 traditional dishes they love while feeling great about health, sustainability and animal welfare benefits of plant protein. Our goal is to bring change to the plate and BEYOND.
