Wall Street just got a little greener.
Beyond Meat, the Los Angeles-Based vegan protein company that gave us the immensely popular Beyond Burger finally took its company public on Friday. Major investors in the company include Academy Award-Winning Actor Leonardo DiCaprio and Microsoft founder Bill Gates, but Friday’s news means that literally anyone with the means and motivation can own a piece of the revolutionary plant-based company.
Beyond Meat’s decision to go public doesn’t come as a surprise. After expanding their iconic Beyond Burger to restaurants and major supermarkets, the company’s next step mirrors that of other plant-based protein providers like Impossible Foods. The move signals that the company is ready to expand, and they believe the plant-based meat market has a lot of growing left to do.
To some experts, Beyond Meat’s venture might seem like a safe bet. According to a report published by Research and Markets, the global meat substitute market size was valued at $4.2 billion in 2017, and is expected grow to $7.5 billion by 2025. At the moment, it seems like the company still has room to expand.
