On September 13, Beyond Meat announced via Facebook that its in-demand faux meat product would be launching in more Whole Foods Market stores. The new states set to receive Beyond Meet are Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Kansas. The highly anticipated meat alternative company plans to change the way people look at vegan meat as it becomes more available to consumers nationwide. In July, VegNews reported on the vegan meat company saying both well-known writers Mark Bittman of The New York Times and Farhad Manjoo of slate.com were completely shocked by how chicken-like the product looked and tasted. On September 8, LA-based restaurant Madeleine Bistro announced on Facebook that Beyond Meat will now be offered in the eatery.
