NYC Mayor, Eric Adams, Serves Beyond Meat

May 31, 2023

NYC City Mayor, Eric Adams, hosted a plant-based breakfast featuring the award-winning Beyond Steak and Beyond Breakfast Sausage as part of the city’s Fleet Week celebrations. 

Adams is a proponent of plant-based eating after having a health scare, and his experience inspired him to write a book, Healthy at Last: A Plant-Based Approach to Preventing and Reversing Diabetes and Other Chronic Illnesses.

Serving only plant-based foods at city-hosted events is just one of several ways Mayor Adams is working to increase plant-based foods education and access in NYC as he believes that, “when those changes are scaled up across the city, they are not just creating better health, but lowering our emissions and improving our lives. As mayor of America's largest city, my job is to lead the way on these kinds of big systemic transformations.”

Mayor Adams’ vision aligns with Beyond Meat’s mission to create absolutely delicious plant-based proteins that deliver the taste and texture of their animal protein equivalent while being better for people and the planet. Most recently, Beyond Steak was certified by the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check Food Certification Program after meeting the organization’s exacting nutrition criteria for being a heart-healthy food as well as named one of TIME’s Best Inventions of 2022 for being a “healthier steak.”
