SHANGHAI, China - November 16, 2022 – Beyond Meat, Inc. (NASDAQ: BYND), a leading plant-based meat company, today announced the launch of Beyond Dumplings® in the Chinese market. Designed to cater to the Chinese dining table by making the popular traditional delicacies available in a plant-based option, the new Beyond Dumplings are available in two varieties, boiled and fried, and are now available nationwide through the brand’s e-commerce stores on Tmall and JD.com*.
The Beyond Dumplings are packed with mouthwatering Beyond Beef™ or Beyond Pork™ fillings, providing delicious, juicy and satisfying bites in both boiled dumplings and fried dumplings choices.
Beyond Boiled Dumplings are filled with a tasty blend of refreshing vegetables and Beyond Meat’s plant-based meat, and wrapped in a delicate dumpling skin made from Inner Mongolian Hetao flour for a rich, “meaty” and chewy dumpling experience that is nostalgic of the hand-made dumplings of Northern China.

- Beyond Boiled Dumplings with Beyond Beef, Celery and Wood Ear Mushroom contain around 190 kcal and 6.0 g of fat per serving (100g);
- Beyond Boiled Dumplings with Beyond Pork, Shepherd’s-purse and Nanohana contain around 195 kcal and 5.3 g of fat per serving (100g).
Beyond Fried Dumplings combine Beyond Meat’s plant-based meat and locally-inspired vegetables for a tender, juicy and savory dumpling filling. Wrapped in crispy gyozas, the pre-cooked dumplings make for an authentic Asian mealtime favorite or a convenient all-day snacking option for the whole family that are available in two flavor profiles:
- Beyond Fried Dumplings with Beyond Beef and Miso Wakame contain around 187 kcal and 6.3 g of fat per serving (100g);
- Beyond Fried Dumplings with Beyond Pork, Chinese Chives and Lettuce contain around 185 kcal and 5.6 g of fat per serving (100g).
Jeremy Yeo, Beyond Meat's Acting General Manager in China, said: “We are excited to expand our product portfolio in China with the unveiling of our new Beyond Dumplings line. With this launch, we are proud to make plant-based protein more accessible to local consumers by enabling them to enjoy a traditional and ubiquitous Chinese dish without having to sacrifice on taste or nutrition.”
With 12 pieces per package, the dumplings can be prepared in an air fryer, steamer, fry pan, oven or microwave, providing a convenient meal choice for anytime of the day that's ready in under (10) minutes.
The introduction of Beyond Dumplings follows other new Beyond Meat product launches in China this year, including the debut of Beyond Meat Plant-Based Pork Patties. The company has also recently announced exciting foodservice partnerships in China with brands such as Dicos. Beyond Meat’s other products are also available at local retailers like City Shop and Sam's Club, as well as on China's three major e-commerce platforms — JD.com, Tmall and Pinduoduo.
