Beyond Meat Inc. and PepsiCo Inc. announced the debut of Beyond Meat Jerky. The convenient plant-based jerky is the first product from the two companies' joint venture, Planet Partnership, LLC.
Rolling out at stores nationwide starting in March, Beyond Meat Jerky offers an on-the-go snack that furthers Beyond Meat and PepsiCo's shared passion for creating products that are better for both people and the planet.
Available in three different sized packs, Beyond Meat Jerky is Beyond Meat's first shelf-stable product, unlocking new channels of distribution with availability everywhere from grocery stores to gas stations, and club stores to pharmacies, powering better-for-you snacking that's convenient and accessible.
Beyond Meat Jerky is marinated and slow roasted to offer the savory experience of traditional beef jerky in three flavors: Original, Hot & Spicy and Teriyaki. Beyond Meat Jerky contains 10 grams of protein per serving, no cholesterol, and is made with simple, plant-based ingredients like peas and mung beans, all without GMOs, soy or gluten.
"We are thrilled to introduce the first product from Planet Partnership, our joint venture with Beyond Meat and PepsiCo," said Dan Moisan, CEO of Planet Partnership. "The nationwide launch of Beyond Meat Jerky will make plant-based meat accessible to millions of households. It tastes great, it's a good source of protein, and it's convenient to eat whether you're on the go, at the office or out on adventures."
