    Beyond Meat has listed on the NYSE.

    Beyond produces plant based meat alternatives that look, feel and taste like real beef burgers, sausages and chicken products.

    Their sales have been growing rapidly in recent years, and they are spreading around the globe.

    Even large chains like Burger King in the USA have begun serving their burger patties on new “vegan whoppers”.

    I just bought some shares in the company, just a token investment of $500 USD, 7 shares in total @$69.83.

    At least now I will feel even better when I eat burgers, hahaha.

    I haven’t done nearly enough research to commit a proper amount, but I thought since I like the products, and feel strongly that this is a major growth business, in was worth atleast a token investment while I do further research and wait for the USD/AUD exchange rate to improve so that I can get more USD’s into my account.

    Tyson Readies Alternative-Meat Debut After Exiting Beyond

    By the end of the year, Tyson Foods Inc.’s new alternative-meat product could already be a major player in the U.S., perhaps giving the likes of the Beyond Burger and the Impossible Burger a run for their money.

    Tyson is preparing to introduce meatless protein products on a limited basis around the middle of the year and on a much larger scale soon after that, Chief Executive Officer Noel White told analysts on an earnings call Monday. More...

    Beyond Meat’s Valuation Is ‘Absurd,’ Says Stock’s First Short

    Now that Beyond Meat Inc. has soared about 225 percent since going public last week -- and saw the strongest first day of trading for an IPO since the 2008 financial crisis -- the first skeptics on Wall Street are coming out with guns blazing.

    The valuation has become "absurd" and the stock should pull back soon, according to Atlanta-based Harrington Alpha Fund founder Bruce Cox. His newly launched long/short fund initiated a short position in the stock on Wednesday, the first fund manager to go on record as questioning Beyond Meat’s runup. More...


    Burger Joints Cash In on Faux-Meat Mania as Shares Surge

    It may be a bit early in the trend, but faux meat may be the next fintech, or even marijuana. Especially if it comes smothered in Havarti cheese, beer onions, waffle sweet potato fries and smoked ketchup.

    Hooters operator Chanticleer Holdings Inc., which also owns and runs restaurants under the American Burger Company, BGR – Burgers Grilled Right, Little Big Burger and Just Fresh brands, announced a partnership with Beyond Meat Inc. Wednesday, and said 50 plus individual store locations would start designing and offering their own unique burgers. More...
