At Beyond Meat, we believe there is a better way to feed the planet and that the small changes we make can add up to make a big impact. By shifting from animal to plant-based meat, we can address four growing global issues: human health, climate change, constraints on natural resources, and animal welfare. Our delicious products include plant-based burgers, beef, sausage, chicken and more.

Protein, fat, minerals, carbohydrates, and water are the five building blocks of meat. We source these building blocks directly from plants. Using heating, cooling, and pressure, we create the fibrous texture of meat from plant-based proteins. Then, we mix in fats, minerals, fruit and vegetable-based colors, natural flavors, and carbohydrates to replicate the appearance, juiciness, and flavor of meat. The result? All the flavor you want, none of the cholesterol, hormones, or GMOs you don't.
Absolutely! Beyond Meat® products are plant-based and vegan.
