Beyond Meat has unveiled a plant-based ground pork alternative, its first product designed specifically for the Chinese market.
With 18.5g of protein per 100g serving, Beyond Pork is designed to deliver the taste and texture of traditional ground pork for a seamless swap in dishes such as dumplings, noodles and meatballs.
Beyond Meat first entered the Chinese market earlier this year through a partnership with Starbucks.
The brand says that pork is the most popular meat in the country and that its new plant-based alternative contains roughly 50% less saturated and total fat than traditional 70/30 ground pork.
Made without GMOs, antibiotics or hormones, Beyond Pork was developed through a collaboration between Beyond Meat teams in Los Angeles and Shanghai.
Beyond Meat recently announced that it is launching two new versions of its Beyond Burger in early 2021, as part of a new platform to offer consumers an expanded choice of plant-based burgers.
