SYSCO BRINGS THE BEYOND BURGER TO MORE AMERICAN PLATES AND MENUS NATIONWIDE!
September 13, 2017
Today we are SO excited to officially announce our partnership with Sysco, the nation's largest food distributor.
What does the nation's largest food distributor do?
Sysco sells, markets and distributes food products to an enormous amount of restaurants, hotels, healthcare facilities and schools nationwide who prepare meals away from home.
Sysco hand-selected The Beyond Burger to be the latest addition to their Cutting Edge Solutions (CES) program. This program is designed to spotlight and offer new products to customers based on emerging food trends.
So why is this exciting?
By teaming up with Sysco, The Beyond Burger will expand its potential reach to tens of thousands of restaurant and food service establishments across the country, enabling millions of people to experience the sizzling Future of Protein!
This exclusive deal is making delicious, plant-based options to thousands of burger joints, restaurant chains, hospitality properties, healthcare centers and educational facilities nationwide a reality!
"Similar to how we've partnered with conventional grocery stores to bring The Beyond Burger to the meat aisle where everyday consumers shop for protein, we are thrilled to be a part of Sysco's Cutting Edge Solutions program to bring The Beyond Burger to menus alongside beef at thousands of mainstream restaurants nationwide" said Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat CEO.
There is a cultural shift happening in the U.S. food ecosystem from animal-based protein to plant-based protein and we're BEYOND happy we can help feed this growing appetite!
