Beyond Meat has raised USD 55 million in a financing round supported by Tyson Foods. Beyond Meat was now in around 19,000 stores with products including Beast Burgers, Beyond Chicken Strips, Beyond Beef Crumbles, and the famous Beyond Burger. Beyond Meat’s products contained no meat, with many being based on pea-protein. The money raised would be used to more than triple the size of its production, fund research and development, and expand sales and distribution.
