Beyond Meat said on Friday it would eliminate the role of chief supply chain officer after Bernie Adcock gave notice that he would be stepping down, effective September 30.
The plant-based meat producer said interim chief operating officer and senior vice president of manufacturing operations Jonathan Nelson will oversee the company’s supply chain responsibilities once Adcock leaves.
Beyond Meat added that Adcock was leaving to pursue another opportunity.
Earlier this week, Nelson was tasked with overseeing operations on an interim basis after Chief Operating Officer Doug Ramsey was arrested for allegedly biting off a man’s nose.
Rising inflation has slowed the company’s efforts to make its costlier plant-based meat more affordable for consumers, forcing it to cut its 2022 revenue forecast and cut 4% from its global workforce in August.
