Shares in Bill Gates’ Fake Meat Company Tank as Consumers Reject Bioengineered ‘Food’ | Neon Nettle

Shares in the fake meat company co-owned by Bill Gates, Beyond Meat, have plummetted as growing numbers of consumers reject bioengineered “food.”

Despite an ongoing push from the global elite – who unlikely consume the stuff themselves but insist that you eat nothing else -, demand for lab-grown “meat” has slowed far beyond shareholders’ predictions.

On Wednesday, Beyond Meat Inc (BYND.O) forecast fourth-quarter revenue below estimates.

The move came as the once red-hot plant-based “meat” producer reported slowing demand in both grocery stores and restaurants.

The news ended up driving the company’s shares down by a whopping 19 percent in extended trading.

The company, which generates the bulk of its revenue from retailers, had cut its third-quarter revenue forecast last month.

The company reported taking a hit from fewer people stockpiling plant-based burgers and sausages at home after they returned to dining out.

However, Beyond did not sell as many products at restaurants during the quarter either.

    Much like “vegan meat” in the supermarkets here in Australia. It is hard to sell even when discounted, as meat comes from animals after all.
