Beyond Meat Rolls Out Vegan Sausages

Food

Ethan Brown—the founder and CEO of vegan company Beyond Meat—has big dreams for his products, and they appear to be coming true in rapid succession.

His first goal was to have his revolutionary vegan Beyond Burger available in stores' refrigerated meat sections (in order to appeal to meat-eaters, too). The first Whole Foods to carry it sold out of the product within an hour. Now, Beyond Meat has unveiled its new vegan Beyond Sausage.


The brats—whose soy- and gluten-free protein comes from peas, fava and rice—will be available in three varieties: Original Bratwurst, Sweet Italian and Hot Italian.

There's been quite a buzz because of Beyond Meat's impressive list of investors—including Bill Gates, Twitter cofounders Biz Stone and Evan Williams, Tyson Foods, and former McDonald's CEO Don Thompson. Brown knows that the future of food is vegan, and Beyond Meat aims to disrupt the $48 trillion meat industry.

See how realistic these meat-free sausages look:

And see how juicy and delicious they look when grilled:

The new vegan sausages are being previewed at Whole Foods' Pearl Street location in Boulder, Colorado. Additional locations that will carry them will be announced in January, so keep your eyes peeled.

In the meantime, you can try Beyond Meat's vegan beef and chicken products.

Investment in U.S. offshore wind projects are set to hit $78 billion (€69 billion) this decade, in contrast with an estimated $82 billion for U.S. offshore oil and gasoline projects, Wood Mackenzie data shows. This would be a remarkable feat only four years after the first offshore wind plant — the 30 megawatt (MW) Block Island Wind Farm off the coast of Rhode Island — started operating in U.S. waters.

The COVID-19 pandemic has revealed both the strengths and limitations of globalization. The crisis has made people aware of how industrialized food production can be, and just how far food can travel to get to the local supermarket. There are many benefits to this system, including low prices for consumers and larger, even global, markets for producers. But there are also costs — to the environment, workers, small farmers and to a region or individual nation's food security.
