Hey Blanca I am a professional food blogger and looking to get my hands on Beyond Meat or any of the newly non-beef products to review. I am a Vegan but cheat sometimes when I cannot tell in a sauce. I am here in Lisbon for 3-months on assignment with a food magazine. Any idea where I can find the stuff? Also, I would love your feedback on an article about it.
I asked my startup connection from the San Fran area and a chef for Daniel Boulud and both told me not yet. Check again during the summer at Corte Inglese. I have requested they’re buyer to note the Beyond people. I would assume they would first do it at one of the restaurants then launch countrywide. Remember Europeans are really suspicious about "engineered" foods.
As of July 2019, you can get the Beyond Burger at Continente supermarket in Centro Comercial Colombo in Benfica. Apparently Continenet Supermarket has a new thing called "Food Lab" that promotes the food of the future. As of now, that includes Beyond Meat (which IMHO is a good veggie burger – but still does not taste like meat), Salsichas de Ovo (Egg Hot Dogs – these were not so great), Lemon’mate (caffeinated soda made of lemons and Yerba Mate), and Vadia’s Bread Beer which is made of bread. I’m sure they will get more fun stuff.
Just an update for all of you that want to buy Beyond Meat in Lisbon. Looks like Beyond Meat is opening up their first factory outside the US in the Netherlands. It is supposed to open in the first quarter of 2020. Their goal is to distribute throughout Europe, so I have a feeling we will be seeing Beyond Meat in other supermarkets in Lisbon and Portugal soon.
