Danny O’Malley saw the future when he hit the streets years ago to educate and sell an innovative new product—Beyond Meat.
The plant-based burger excited his customers, and they wanted more before the analogue had made it to their menus.
Spotting a growth path, O’Malley left the growing company to birth his own, Before the Butcher. The company offers the butcher counter and more in plant-based form: deli slices, grounds, shreds, chunks and tips and, of course, burgers.
In this episode of the Fodder podcast, we chat about:
The rise of flexitarians and meat reducers.
Who is leading—and buying into—the plant-based meat revolution.
Where the plant-based market could grow.
Why 2020 will mark a pivotal time in the analogue meat movement.
And why the market already is very different for plant-based entrepreneurs today.
“We are still on the tip of the iceberg, where things are going to continue to trickle down in a very, very big way, and will continue to grow this segment of the industry, which is good for all of us,” O’Malley said.
