Vegan Outlook

The food and beverage industry have welcomed plant-based products in the mix. Companies such as White Castle, Burger King, and Beyond Meat are all offering new products that are vegan friendly.

Beyond Meat burgers have garnered a huge following and the sales of the vegan burgers have grown 10% this year.

Experts are expecting a bullish future for Beyond Meat stocks and its potential for expansions. Although the overall sales of vegan burgers are still below the $1 billion mark, analysts are saying that there is enough room for its expansion.

A forecast of a 194% growth this 2019 is expected for Beyond Meat and sales are expecting to climb $259 million. The company’s growth revenue may be struggling but the public’s interest for plant-based products is enough to keep the stakeholders.
