You probably saw last week the news that the vegan company Beyond Meat's COO was arrested after literally taking a bite out of human flesh:
Perhaps it's not the most surprising thing in the world, then, that the company is, y'know, not doing well.
Beleaguered plant-based food producer Beyond Meat has lost a second senior executive days after it suspended its chief operating officer.
Bernie Adcock will step down as chief supply chain officer at the end of the month "to pursue another opportunity", the US company announced on Friday. ...
It comes as Beyond Meat's share price continues to flounder amid broader concerns about the growth of the plant-based meat market in the US. Its stock dipped to US $14.7 on Friday and has plummeted 36.71% in the past month alone and 86.16% in the past year.
So the company is hemorrhaging senior executives and its stock is plummeting into near-negative territory. I am starting to think that enough people got to bite into a Beyond Burger and figured out it wasn't really the best meal on the planet.
You know what's a pretty good meal? A veggie burger. I'm not talking about those awful 1980s-style frozen hockey pucks with no identifiable vegetables in them. I'm talking about a nice fresh black-bean burger or something – made with good ingredients, seasoned well, and cooked well.
It's a fine product. It's not meat, but it doesn't have to be. We don't have to create fake franken-meat and creepy fake blood and stuff.
If you want to enjoy a vegetarian meal, just make one out of normal vegetables and you will be fine. No "expeller-pressed canola oil" necessary!
