BEYOND MEAT, IMPOSSIBLE FOODS FACE PRICE COMPETITION IN PLANT-BASED MARKET

It’s the lowest price point Beyond Meat patties have ever hit, according to Beyond Meat. It’s also a price that’s competitive with some meat burger patties. The company has said it aims to price its products comparably to their meat equivalents by 2024.

“This forward-looking pricing represents an important milestone along our journey to make Beyond Meat more accessible to all consumers,” Beyond Meat founder and CEO Ethan Brown said in a statement.

BEYOND MEAT DOUBLES R&D SPENDING

Beyond Meat’s burgers are made from plant-based ingredients and contain no soy or gluten.

The value pack will be carried in the frozen meat aisles of Walmart, Target and select other retailers starting June 22. It’s a limited-edition item, but Beyond Meat said shoppers at other grocers like Kroger, Publix, Albertsons, Whole Foods, Shoprite, Giant and Stop & Shop will also find savings on its products through July 4.
