Beyond Meat VS 80/20 Beef

Dariush Ajami is the Chief Innovation Officer of Beyond Meat. In a statement sent to PBN, he said: “We’re continuously working on understanding beef flavor at a deeper level to ensure our plant-based beef platform delivers a delicious and satisfying sensory experience. 

“The new Beyond Burger’s rich flavor profile resembles that of ground beef. Extensive testing with our consumers validated this new flavor direction with likeability scoring on-par with 80/20 ground beef burgers.”

‘Delicious plant-based meat’

Moreover, Ethan Brown is Beyond Meat’s founder and CEO. He added: “The launch of the latest Beyond Burger iteration is another strong step forward in providing consumers with absolutely delicious plant-based meat that is better for people and the planet, no sacrifice required.

“It’s my hope that these meaningful advances in taste and nutrition, using only non-GMO plant-based ingredients, will delight existing consumers and invite others to join us in Going Beyond.”
