USA, El Segundo. Beyond Meat announced its latest expansion of product offerings at Walmart.
Starting this week, within the approximately 2,400 Walmart locations nationwide in which Beyond Meat products are currently sold, Walmart will be adding Beyond Sausage Hot Italian to the fresh meat aisle at more than 400 stores as well as expanding the frozen Cookout Classic value-pack to approximately 500 stores. This increased distribution at Walmart is Beyond Meat’s second in the past year and is part of Beyond Meat’s effort to increase worldwide accessibility to simple, plant-based meat products made without GMOs or bioengineered ingredients.
As demand for plant-based meat continues to rise, this increased distribution complements the company’s expansive retail presence at approximately 28,000 retail outlets across the US in which consumers have made their preference for Beyond Meat clear: according to the 52-week SPINS and NPD data ending December 2020, Beyond Meat was the #1 selling plant-based meat brand in the refrigerated category at grocery stores1and across foodservice.
Beyond Meat first launched its products at Walmart in 2015. Since then, offerings at Walmart have expanded to include the Beyond Burger, Beyond Sausage Brat Original, and Beyond Breakfast Sausage patties, along with the latest additions of Beyond Sausage Hot Italian and Cookout Classic.
