According to a statement by Beyond Meat Founder and CEO Ethan Brown: "Reflecting rapid demand growth in the United States and sustained interest from international markets, we've taken steps to significantly increase our production capacity.
"These additions make it possible for us to support international launches, building upon the successful 2017 introduction of the Beyond Burger in Hong Kong."
Beyond Meat has partnered with a select group of distributors to enter over 50 countries including Germany and the rest of Europe, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Chile, Israel, UAE, Korea, Taiwan and South Africa.
In order to meet demand, the company announced the construction of its new research and innovation facility in Los Angeles earlier this year.
