Beyond Meat Partners With Einride to Introduce Electric Vehicles to US Fleet

Swedish freight technology company Einride is working with Beyond Meat to provide digital, electric transportation solutions to its US operations, in a bid to reduce the company’s CO2 emissions whilst reducing operational costs and increasing transportation capacity.

“We are committed to optimizing the journey our products take to reach consumers’ plates to make it more sustainable”

Initially, Einride is to deploy five electric trucks as well as develop and install the associated charging infrastructure, then over the following five years will scale the e-trucks across Beyond Meat’s operations in the US. Similarly, Einride collaborated with Oatly back in 2020 to provide electric vehicles for the Swedish market.

“Achieving a sustainable future requires collaboration and cooperation among brands from every industry and we’re thrilled to add Beyond Meat to our growing network of U.S. companies committed to creating a clean and efficient supply chain,” said Einride’s Niklas Reinedahl, General Manager of North America. “Working with Beyond Meat was a natural fit given our aligned efforts to offer actionable products rooted in creating a more sustainable future. By offering our services to help build a more intelligent shipping system for Beyond Meat, we’ll be able to reduce CO2 emissions.” 

“At Beyond Meat we recognize the importance of not just focusing our sustainability efforts on our products, but incorporating this mindset across our business operations as well. We are committed to optimizing the journey our products take to reach consumers’ plates to make it more sustainable, and our partnership with Einride is one of many steps we are taking to make that a reality,” said Christopher Pimentel, Director of Environment, Health, Safety at Beyond Meat.
