EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Beyond Meat, a plant-based meat company, today launched its new Beyond Chicken Tenders. Crafted to look, cook and taste like traditional chicken tenders, the plant-based Beyond Chicken Tenders are breaded.
Consumer demand for chicken is continuing to skyrocket, the company said. In fact, it continued, chicken is so in-demand that the nation is currently facing a shortage.
Chicken Tenders are also made with no GMOs, antibiotics or hormones, and have no cholesterol, Beyond Meat said.
This new product builds on the success of its first plant-based chicken product in 2012. Beyond Meat said nearly 200 research, innovation and culinary team members have spent almost a decade on the Beyond Chicken Tenders.
