Today, TIME revealed the first-ever TIME100 Most Influential Companies, a new list—and an expansion of the annual TIME100 franchise—that highlights 100 businesses making an extraordinary impact around the world. Beyond Meat is proud to be recognized as a category leader and to be included in the inaugural list of TIME100 Most Influential Companies.
To assemble the list, TIME solicited nominations across every sector—including health care, entertainment, transportation, technology and more—from its global network of editors and correspondents, as well as from industry experts. Each company was then evaluated on key factors, including relevance, impact, innovation, leadership, ambition and success. Beyond Meat is the only plant-based meat company on the prestigious inaugural list of companies that are making significant impacts on the world alongside other game-changing brands such as Amazon, Apple, Google, Netflix, Nike and Tesla.
This honor is especially timely as it coincides with the launch of our latest game-changing product innovation, the even-better, even-meatier, even-juicier new Beyond Burger. First launched in 2016, the Beyond Burger has since become a ubiquitous symbol for the future of food innovation and reflects Beyond Meat’s unparalleled commitment to creating the world’s best tasting plant-based meat products without GMOs that are better for both people and the planet.
