Despite a Difficult First Quarter, We Think Beyond Meat's Long-Term Prospects Remain Promising

Business Strategy and Outlook

| Rebecca Scheuneman, CFA |

Beyond Meat is a pioneer in the plant-based meat, or PBM, industry, offering the first burger to look and taste like meat, although it was soon followed by Impossible Foods and many others. Given the rapidly changing marketplace, we think it is too early to tell if Beyond’s first-mover advantage will result in an enduring market leadership position. Until we have better visibility on the strength and durability of its brand, we don’t assign Beyond a moat.

Beyond Meat Inc's Company Profile

Business Description

Beyond Meat is a provider of plant-based meats, such as burgers, sausage, ground beef, and chicken. Unlike other vegetarian products, Beyond Meat seeks to replicate the look, cook, and taste of meat, is targeted to omnivores and vegetarians alike, and is sold in the meat case. The products are widely available across the U.S. and Canada and in 83 additional countries as well. International revenue represented 31% of 2021 sales. The firm’s products are available in retail stores and the food-service channel. In 2019, before the pandemic struck, sales were evenly split between these two channels, although mix stood at 70% retail/30% food service in 2021. We think the recovery from the crisis and new deals with McDonald's and Yum Brands will return food-service sales to 50% in time.
