The company said it expects net revenue of $210 million, an increase of more than 140% compared to 2018. Analysts were expecting sales of $205 million, according to Refinitiv IBES data.
"We are in the early stages of achieving the growth that Beyond Meat is capable of," Chief Executive Officer Ethan Brown said in a statement, adding that the company is focused on increasing brand awareness, expanding distribution channels and launching innovative products.
