EL SEGUNDO, CALIF. – Beyond Meat Inc. recently announced that Bernie Adcock resigned from his position as chief supply chain officer.

In an SEC filing on Sept. 20, the company said Adcock submitted his resignation letter to “pursue another opportunity.”

Before joining Beyond Meat, Adcock held the same position at Tyson Foods, where he worked for 31 years. 

The role of chief supply chain officer has been eliminated,” Beyond Meat said in the filing. “Mr. Adcock’s responsibilities will be performed by Jonathan Nelson, the company’s current senior vice president, manufacturing operations.”

Adcock only joined Beyond Meat in December 2021 along with fellow longtime Tyson Executive Doug Ramsey, whom the meat alternative company suspended following a physical altercation after an Arkansas Razorbacks football game earlier this month.
