One year after Beyond Meat’s plant meat entered the Chinese food market, their latest production plant was officially opened in the Jiaxing Economic and Technological Development Zone a few days ago. This plant is Beyond Meat’s first end-to-end plant meat production facility outside the United States. Its completion is expected to help Beyond Meat “significantly increase the speed and scale of product production and distribution in China” and help the company “optimize costs” Structure and enhance the sustainability of operations.”
According to the official introduction, the Jiaxing plant will produce “a series of innovative plant-based pork, beef and poultry products”, which will also include the Beyond Pork pork developed by Beyond Meat specifically for the Chinese market. In the eyes of Beyond Meat, China is an important “long-term development market”, and the new factory will provide “strong support” for its growing retail and catering services business in the future. After the Jiaxing plant, Beyond Meat’s first plant in Europe is expected to be put into use later this year.
