Pepsico and Beyond Meat have partnered to launch a plant-based jerky product Beyond Meat Jerky, which is the first output of their joint venture.
This is part of the Planet Partnership, which is a collaboration between Beyond Meat and PepsiCo to develop and produce plant-based snack and beverage products.
Featuring three flavours – Original, Hot & Spicy and Teriyaki, the meatless jerky contains 10g of protein, is cholesterol-free and is sourced from plant-based ingredients like peas and mung beans, without GMOs, soy or gluten.
According to two companies, the jerky offers an on-the-go snack that is convenient to purchase and is good for people as well as the planet.
“The nationwide launch of Beyond Meat Jerky will make plant-based meat accessible to millions of households,” said Dan Moisan, CEO of Planet Partnership.
“It tastes great, it’s a good source of protein, and it’s convenient to eat whether you’re on the go, at the office or out on adventures.”
The vegan jerky is available in three different-sized packs and can be bought through grocery stores, gas stations, club stores and pharmacies across the US.
