Beyond Meat will now have a meal kit distributor for its product.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – Beyond Meat, a maker of plant-based meat substitutes, has partnered with meal kit provider Chef’d to distribute its Beyond Burger product to consumers via e-commerce channels.
“Now, anyone, anywhere within the Chef’d footprint can be just a click away from having our delicious, satisfying plant-based burger delivered to their door,” said Ethan Brown, founder and CEO of Beyond Meat. “We’ve been looking forward to launching this partnership and are thrilled to get it underway.”
Chef’d will offer the Beyond Burger in two recipes: Classic Beyond Burger with Red Potato Salad and a Sautéed Mushroom and Onion Beyond Burger with Crunchy Carrot Slaw.
“Beyond Meat shares our commitment to innovation and the future of food, improving what we eat and how we eat,” said Kyle Ransford, Chef’d founder and CEO. "The Beyond Burger is simply a great burger, and we’re excited to offer more ways for our consumers to enjoy it.”
In addition to the growing distribution with Chef’d, the Beyond Burger is expanding into more grocery stores with the recent entrance into more than 1,400 Kroger and Albertsons company-owned stores nationwide.
