Stock Making Biggest Move Beyond Meat, Inc. Expanding in China’s $130 Billion Revenue Industry

Beyond Meat, Inc. (NASDAQ: BYND) is one of the fastest growing food companies in the United States, offering an alternative choice to animal meat and offering plant-based meats.

With the global coronavirus pandemic disrupting the supply chain for beef and chicken, consumers have increasingly gravitated toward meat alternatives. Sales of plant-based meat products surged 264% in the U.S. in the early months of the lockdown.

Beyond Meat, Inc. (BYND) Nasdaq Beyond Meat announced it will be expanding into the China Market with a new distribution deal the stock Rose in early morning trade. Beyond Meat will continue to distribute its food through Sinodis a division of the French dairy maker and distributor Savencia. Chuck Muth said in a news release. “China is an important market given its large population and interest in plant-based proteins.”

Beyond meat was able to take an edge over meat due to the fact that meat distribution was seriously hampered by the Coronavirus pandemic.
