Beyond Meat Is Launching Seasoned Vegan Meatballs Nationwide
This month plant-based powerhouse Beyond Meat will launch its newest meatless creation nationwide: Beyond Meatballs! Seasoned with Italian spices, the meatballs come already rolled in packs of 12 and have a suggested retail price of $6.99.
While the exciting new product will initially launch at select grocery stores—including Whole Foods, Sprouts, and Albertsons—it will be available at more retail stores come October. Beyond Meat’s chief marketing officer Stuart Kronauge said in a statement:
We’re thrilled to introduce Beyond Meatballs as they deliver on consumers’ growing demand for delicious and nutritious plant-based meat options without GMOs or synthetic ingredients. We are proud to introduce our newest innovation at retailers nationwide and know our fans will be excited about the great taste and convenience of Beyond Meatballs.
Despite recent COVID-19 shutdowns, Beyond Meat has been thriving. In fact, the company recently announced that its second-quarter revenue leaped to $113 million—an impressive 69 percent increase! The sales have far exceeded Wall Street’s forecast of $99 million. Additionally, according to the Wall Street Journal, grocery store sales for Beyond Meat products climbed 69 percent.
Last month, Beyond Meat launched an e-commerce site, enabling its customers to order their products in bulk directly from the company. This way, customers can have plant-based sausages, burgers, and more delivered to their doors in just two days.
Beyond Meat’s plant-based products aren’t just a delicious, healthier alternative to eating animals—a Beyond Meat burger takes 99 percent less water, 93 percent less land, and 46 percent less energy to produce than a beef burger.
