Shanghai, China - July 18, 2022 - Beyond Meat, Inc. (NASDAQ: BYND), a leading plant-based meat company, today announced the introduction of its latest product, Plant-based Pork Patties, to the Chinese market. The protein-rich and trans-fat-free new products mark Beyond Meat’s latest offering available in Chinese retail, and makes it easier than ever for local consumers to enjoy delicious, nutritious plant-based protein.
Made from simple plant-based ingredients and available in two flavors – classic and spicy – Beyond Meat Plant-based Pork Patties are designed to deliver the delicious taste and juicy texture similar to traditional animal pork patties with added nutritional benefits. The Classic Plant-based Pork Patties contain around 16.4 g of protein and 21.1 g of fat per 100 g serving, while Spicy Plant-based Pork Patties contain about 17.1 g of protein and 22.4 g of fat per 100 g serving – much less than traditional animal pork patties (which have around 30.1 g of fat per 100g serving) . As the healthy diet is gaining popularity among young consumers in China, the Plant-based Pork Patties will satisfy the growing appetite for great-tasting home-cooked meals.
With eight patties per package, the Plant-based Pork Patties are a great plant-based protein option for cooking a nutritious family breakfast, weekly meal prep for the office, or just a balanced home-cooked dinner for wellness enthusiasts. Also a good fit for career go-getters needing a quality late-night snack, trend-setters preparing a weekend brunch, or fitness fanatics needing a post-workout protein boost, Beyond Meat’s Plant-based Pork Patties are a convenient and accessible product for everyone.
“We are thrilled to expand our product portfolio in China with the debut of the Plant-based Pork Patties, enabling more Chinese consumers to incorporate nutritious plant-based protein into their diet throughout the day,” said Jeremy Yeo, Beyond Meat’s Acting General Manager in China.
Beyond Meat’s Plant-based Pork Patties are easy to prepare without defrosting and can be conveniently cooked from frozen to finished in under five minutes. Whether using a non-stick pan, skillet, stewing pot, or air fryer, Plant-based Pork Patties make it easier than ever for consumers to enjoy Beyond Meat’s delicious, plant-based proteins any time of day.
The Plant-based Pork Patties are Beyond Meat’s second plant-based pork product available in China, which joins Beyond Pork™ in Beyond Meat’s product portfolio. Both plant-based pork products, along with Beyond Beef™, and the Beyond Burger® are produced locally at Beyond Meat's manufacturing facility in Jiaxing, China.
Beyond Meat’s Plant-based Pork Patties are currently available on Tmall and will be offered at retailers in the near future.
