Beyond Meat (NASDAQ: BYND), a leading plant-based protein company, was featured in a recent analysis report that discussed the steady drop of adoption in the plant-based diet trend and potential future shifting. The piece discusses current pacing of -20% QoQ and -15% YoY in overall consumer mentions of following a plant-based diet as well as purchase intent mentions for BYND failing to get off the ground. While trending is down, the report, written by LikeFolio Founder Andy Swan, outlines a potential near-term increase. “BYND’s tumble has us asking ourselves: is there any sign of any light at the end of the tunnel? Perhaps…in the very near term. Here’s why: Inflation is Driving Meat Prices Higher – Historically, one of the main obstacles to consumers trying and repeatedly purchasing plant-based meat has been elevated prices vs. real meat. Beyond and Impossible Foods have been working to improve pricing for some time. But now the scales are changing. From April 2021 to April 2022 chicken prices have risen 16.4%, beef is up almost 15%, and fish and seafood are up 11.9%. This is weighing on consumers. Food price concern mentions are at all-time highs, currently pacing more than +300% higher on a YoY basis. Meat price sensitivity mentions make up a large portion of this trend. Consumers are starting to take notice… Beyond Meat affordability mentions have risen by +14% YoY. Bottom Line: The plant-based meat industry (and BYND specifically) has an opportunity to tempt would-be buyers with price parity for the first time in the company’s history. But, it’s up to the company to keep any new consumers around and manage internal supply chain pressures effectively. We’ll be monitoring BYND demand long-term to see if the company can capitalize.”
