The duo spent nearly a decade in the University lab working different temperatures and pressures to get their mixture of soybean and pea proteins “as close to the look and feel of real chicken as possible.” It took them another five years to come up with a recipe for Beyond Meat’s first product, “Chicken-Free Strips,” which the company released to limited locations in 2012. The company has received venture funding from GreatPoint Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Obvious Corporation, Bill Gates, Biz Stone, the Humane Society and Tyson Foods.
