Beyond Meat, a prominent plant-based meat producer, has agreed a new multi-year pea protein supply agreement with Roquette, a pioneer of plant proteins. The supply agreement builds on a longstanding partnership that began approximately ten years ago.
The new deal significantly increases the amount of pea protein to be supplied by Roquette to Beyond Meat over the next three years as compared to the amount supplied in 2019.
Ethan Brown, Beyond Meat’s Founder & CEO said: “This latest contract with Roquette reflects Beyond Meat's commitment to further scaling the plant protein supply chain as global demand for our products continues to rise. Along with our supply chain partners, including Roquette, we are driving innovation and access to existing and new plant protein feedstocks.”
Jean-Marc Gilson, CEO of Roquette, said: “This agreement with Beyond Meat enables both of us to continue to write the history of this promising market and to grow our businesses together.”
