Beyond Meat will move into a new global HQ at 888 N. Douglas Street in its home town El Segundo, California this fall.

The nearly 300,000 square foot space “will house cutting-edge fundamental and applied research, alongside globalized product development teams, all in service to a single goal: creating meat from plants that is indistinguishable from its animal protein equivalent​,” said CEO Ethan Brown.

Construction will take place in three phases and will include increased pilot space to support multiple product lines while enabling space for 3-4x growth of research personnel over current levels, said the firm.

The campus will also feature “future-forward research incubators that will enable the development of new technologies and more innovative products utilizing artificial intelligence and machine learning,” ​said the company, which will gradually replace​ its flagship plant-based Beyond Burger this year with two new variations: a “juicier and meatier​” burger featuring 35% less saturated fat than 80/20 beef burgers, and its “most nutritious patty yet​,” featuring 55% less saturated fat.
