Tysons answer to fake meat craze halfpea halfbeef burger

first_img 2 Comments Comment Tyson Foods Inc., the biggest U.S. meat processor, wants in on the veggie protein market that’s hot with consumers and investors alike.The meat giant is aiming to satisfy demands of the so-called flexitarians, a rapidly growing segment of people who eat meat but are cutting back and adding more vegetable-based protein to their diets. Tyson’s solution: a half-pea-protein, half-Angus-beef burger.In what could be the biggest foray into the burgeoning alternative protein market this year, Tyson said it will debut the hybrid meat-plant patties and a series of other related products this year in grocery stores as well as restaurants. CEO Noel White said he expects the offerings will become a “billion-dollar brand” and that the company will be a leader in the space. Pulse of the nation: How Beyond Meat could turn this humble pea into Canada’s new gold Why Beyond Meat’s euphoric investors should heed the lessons of Tilray Inside the battle being waged over Beyond Meat’s push to be found in the grocery store meat aisle The company is joining the scrum of companies rushing headlong into meat alternatives after Beyond Meat Inc.’s sizzling initial public offering in May left them playing catch up. Tyson sold its stake in the latter company just before the stunning equity debut. Beyond Meat shares are up more than five-fold since they started trading.Tyson produces a fifth of the U.S.’s chicken, beef and pork. More than 60 per cent of consumers are actively adding protein to their diets, and 75 per cent are open to including both meat and plant-based proteins, according to Noelle O’Mara, chief marketing officer at Tyson. For plant-based proteins specifically, 40 per cent of consumers want more in their diet.“We’ve confirmed that alternative protein is growing and that it makes sense for us to be a part of it,” O’Mara said.Tyson’s beef/plant hybrid burger, sold under the brand Raised & Rooted, is expected to reach consumers in the fall. Other new products the company plans to offer include sausages and meatballs made of a chicken/plant blend under the Aidells Whole Blends brand. The meat producer is also introducing a pure plant-based chicken nugget substitute, which will come to market this summer.We’re bringing forward an entire set of offerings across brands and channels that satisfy how consumers are eating today rather than one approach.Justin Whitmore, chief sustainability officer and head of alternative protein, Tyson Foods June 13, 201912:03 PM EDT Filed under News Retail & Marketing Facebook Email Twitter Lydia Mulvany and Leslie Patton Reddit Bloomberg News More Aiming to satisfy demands of the so-called flexitarians, Tyson half-plant half-beef burger will have “fewer calories and less saturated fat” than other pure plant-based burgers, the company says.

The new products are coming to several major retailers where consumers regularly shop, he said. The blended burger and sausages are a noticeable shift away from that of the company’s purist vegan rivals, namely the Beyond and Impossible Burgers.“We’re bringing forward an entire set of offerings across brands and channels that satisfy how consumers are eating today rather than one approach,” he said.Tyson is making a health pitch as well with its new products. The hybrid burgers made of Angus beef and pea-protein isolate have fewer calories and less saturated fat than other pure plant-based burgers on the market, Whitmore said.The move also fits into the sustainability goals for the giant producer of beef, a protein that has long weathered attacks from environmentalists that say the industry contributes heavily to greenhouse gas emissions. Tyson recently pledged to reduce emissions by 30 per cent by 2030.“We care deeply about all proteins and what it takes to be as efficient as possible,” Whitmore said. “This fits in with our total story.”Bloomberg.com Share this storyTyson’s answer to fake meat craze: half-pea, half-beef burger Tumblr Pinterest Google+ LinkedIn Tyson’s answer to fake meat craze: half-pea, half-beef burger The offerings expected to be ‘billion-dollar brand’ leading the space: CEO Join the conversation →last_img read more
