Beyond Meat to open a production facility near Shanghai

Development includes one of the world's largest and technologically advanced plant-based factories

Beyond Meat has signed a deal with Jiaxing Economic & Technological Development Zone (JXEDZ) to open a production facility within easy reach of financial hub Shanghai.

Beyond Meat said it will develop two production facilities, including one of the world's largest and technologically advanced plant-based meat factories. Trial production is expected to begin within months and reach full-scale production early next year.

This makes Beyond Meat “the first multinational company focused only on plant-based meat production to bring its own production facility into China”, the company said.

China is one of the world's largest markets for animal-based meat products and potentially for plant-based meat said Beyond Meat. It therefore considers it a major market in which to invest.
