protein giant Beyond Meat is set to open a new factory in Columbia, Missouri to
accommodate rapidly growing demand.


The new
factory will accommodate increased production of existing products – including
Beyond Meats flagship product, the Beyond Burger, which is currently outselling
meat burgers at a number of California retailers.

It will
also allow the brand to expand its range – fulfilling promises made by CEO
Ethan Brown
early this month.

on the new facility, COO & CFO Mark Nelson said: “Our expanded 100,000
square foot manufacturing footprint will provide the scale we need to service
our rapidly growing retail, foodservice and international customer base.”


explained that the new facility – and the growth of Beyond Meat – will allow
the company to do more than increase plant-based offerings.

He said: “Our
expansion not only brings more jobs and opportunity to this special community
but also furthers Missouri’s position as a leader in the production of
plant-based meat.”

The company
currently employs more than 200 people, from twelve different countries.
