Elements to consider before selling or buying Beyond Meat shares

Analysis N°1

The growth strategy implemented by this company is of course one of the factors that you should prioritise. The group appears to aim its strategy towards an improvement in the key activity sectors in which it operates and an increase in its market share, revenue and global profitability.

Analysis N°2

The competition in this activity sector is particularly high and intense so it is therefore extremely important to pay particular attention to all events and announcements made by this company’s competitors. A rise in the number of competitors in this market could notably reduce its market share and thereby its profit margins unless the Beyond Meat Company succeeds in protecting itself through a proactive strategy.

Analysis N°3

The particularly rigorous regulations of this activity sector should also be closely monitored as any non-respect of the established policies could have a major impact on the operations and financial performance of this group.

Analysis N°4

Finally, we know that the profitability of Beyond Meat is particularly sensitive to the risks of the Forex market. The company generates a large part of its income from the international markets and due to this fact the volatility of the foreign exchange market can directly impact the company’s financial performance and its position relating to its competitors.

The activity sector in which the Beyond Meat group operates has a growing number of players so it is important to learn about the various competitors of Beyond Meat and the major companies in this activity sector. Here therefore is a quick summary of each of the major adversaries of the Beyond Meat Company together with their activities.

Impossible Food

This is an American company specialised in the development of meat substitutes and vegan cheese products. This company is also based in California and aims to provide customers with products that offer the nutritional benefits and taste of animal based foods without the negative health, animal welfare and environmental aspects of the same. The flagship product of this company is the Impossible Burger that was created in July 2016 and which was the result of several years of research.

Memphis Meat

This Californian company is a food technology company that cultivates long lasting cultivated meat products. This company was founded by a cardiologist and creates various meat products using biotechnology to incite stem cells to produce muscle tissue thereby creating meat products in bioreactors.

Eat Just

Also known as simply ‘Just’, this American company is specialised in the manufacture of plant based foods that are sold internationally. It came into being in 2011, employs around 130 people and notably manufactures alternatives to mayonnaise, vinaigrettes, biscuits, cookie dough, breakfast proteins and cultivated meat.

The major partners of Beyond Meat

Let us take a moment now to explore the principal allies of Beyond Meat and the partnerships that have contributed to a significant increase in its growth and development. Here as follows are the details of recent partnerships signed by the group.


In 2020, the Beyond Meat group notably strengthened an existing partnership with the French Roquette group that supplies it with peas to enable this company to meet the growing demand for its vegan products. In fact, these two companies have worked together for more than a decade now and after the success enjoyed by the meat alternatives produced by the Beyond Meat Company they decided to formalise an agreement relating to the foreseen increase in the volume of vegetable protein provided by the peas sold by Roquette to the Beyond Meat Company.


Another strategic partnership concerns the Casino supermarket chain which signed an agreement with Beyond Meat in 2020 for the distribution in France of their plant based ‘beef’ burgers. Up to this point vegan burgers had only been available in certain French restaurants. The contract between these two companies is in fact a contract of exclusivity for a period of a few weeks as Beyond Meat reserved the right to enter into new partnerships after this time.


Finally, the latest partnership signed by Beyond Meat was with the Starbucks Group and relates to the forthcoming integration of fake meat steaks patented under the American group’s brand name on the Canadian market.
