Beyond Steak Earns the Prestigious Good Housekeeping Nutritionist Approved Emblem
Beyond Steak is the first plant-based meat product to earn this recognition from Good Housekeeping Institute’s Nutrition Lab, which assesses food products based on specific nutritional criteria as well as taste, simplicity, convenience and transparency.
EL SEGUNDO, Calif., April 03, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Following a rigorous evaluation by the Good Housekeeping Institute’s Nutrition Lab, Beyond Steak by Beyond Meat (NASDAQ: BYND), a leader in plant-based meat, has received the Good Housekeeping Nutritionist Approved Emblem, making it the first plant-based meat product to receive this honor.
The latest innovation from Beyond Meat, Beyond Steak is seared to a perfect crisp1 and chopped into bite-sized pieces, quickly becoming a favorite2 and receiving rave reviews for delivering a juicy, meaty3 taste that satisfies meat lovers and flexitarians alike. Made with simple and clean plant-based ingredients, Beyond Steak boasts a strong nutritional profile and is an excellent source of protein, with 21g of protein and 170 calories per serving. Beyond Steak is also low in saturated fat (1g per serving) with no cholesterol, GMOs, added antibiotics or hormones.
“Our nutrition experts at the Good Housekeeping Institute are committed to maximizing consumers’ overall health and wellbeing by providing trustworthy, evidence-based nutrition content and recommendations that encourage a balanced diet,” said Good Housekeeping Institute’s Registered Dietitian and Nutrition Director Stefani Sassos, MS, RDN, CSO, CDN. “Through our evaluation, it was clear that Beyond Steak is a groundbreaking innovation with its balanced flavor profile, tender texture and, most importantly, very impressive nutrition facts. Made free from GMOs, Beyond Steak is also cholesterol-free and low in saturated fat but still high in protein. With Beyond Steak, consumers don’t have to compromise on taste, nutrition or sustainability.”
The Good Housekeeping Nutritionist Approved Emblem was developed to help consumers lead healthier lives by empowering them to make informed food choices. Not only does the emblem provide a solution for those looking to be more health-conscious, but the products selected are also practical and evoke the tried-and-tested assurance of the Good Housekeeping brand in the food space. The Nutrition Lab assesses food products based on specific nutritional criteria as well as taste, simplicity, convenience and transparency.
“Beyond Steak is a perfect example of our brand promise to continuously innovate toward a North Star that not only delivers on delicious taste, but also provides clear nutritional benefits relative to animal-based meat,” said Kate Dugan, Vice President of Brand Innovation at Beyond Meat. “To have this product aligned with such a prestigious emblem reinforces the health impact of Beyond Steak, which was achieved without sacrificing on taste or sustainability. We’re so excited for consumers to continue enjoying Beyond Steak in their favorite dishes.”
As part of its commitment to improving human health, Beyond Meat is dedicated to supporting scientific and evidence-based research on the health implications of shifting from animal-based meat to plant-based meat. For example, in the SWAP-MEAT study, which was published in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, researchers reported the positive impacts of replacing animal-based meat with Beyond Meat’s plant-based meat over an eight-week period, including the improvement of several cardiovascular disease risk factors, such as LDL cholesterol levels and TMAO. Beyond Meat continues to support ongoing studies at the Plant-Based Diet Initiative at Stanford University School of Medicine and last year signed a multi-year agreement with the American Cancer Society to advance research on plant-based meat and cancer prevention.
Consumers can find Beyond Steak at a retailer near them by visiting the Beyond Meat store locator.

IGEN provides 2022 Year-End Results and 2023 Progress Updates
Lake Elsinore, CA | April 03, 2023 07:35 AM Eastern Daylight Time -- IGEN Networks Corporation (OTC: IGEN) (CSE: IGN), a leading innovator of solutions for the consumer automotive, fleet management, and supply-chain industries, today provides unaudited 2022 fiscal year-end financial results along with progress updates on key initiatives for 2023:
For the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company recognized revenues of $318,016 an 18% increase from the previous year. Expenses for the year ended December 31, 2022, totaled $903,048 a decrease of $2,670,235 or 75%, from total expenses reported for 2021. Excluding stock-based compensation expense to our directors, operational expenses increased by 4% year-on-year. Total deferred revenue balance for year ended December 31,2022 was approximately $291,000 of which $136,000 will contribute to 2023 revenues.
For the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company had a net loss of $907,598 (or ($0.00) per basic and diluted share) compared with a net loss of $3,428,937 (or ($0.00) per basic and diluted share) in 2021. Included in the net loss of $907,598, is $301,360 of other income related to the Company's gain on settlement of debt recognized in 2022.
For the year ended December 31, 2022, the Company saw a net decrease in cash of $64,429. Cash used in operating activities was $978,056, an increase in cash used of 2% from the $962,960 net cash used in 2021. This was offset by net financings of $543,746 raised via private placements.
During fiscal-year 2022, the Company shifted marketing focus from automotive dealerships to Credit Unions supported by Federal subsidy programs offering higher profit margins along with monthly and annual re-occurring revenues. Following the contract award for fleet management services granted by a major New York State County, the Company expanded its commercial asset management platforms with the integration of Prolog sourced technologies, a world leader in supply-chain and logistics consulting services. In addition to the renewed focus on Credit Unions and Government markets, IGEN filed Patent-Pending 17/850,250 to expand its patent portfolio to approximately 40 patent claims.
Neil G. Chan, CEO of IGEN stated, "For 2023 our priorities and focus will be to leverage our exclusive channel relationships with the Association of Credit Unions Executives of Puerto Rico (ASEC), the County Executives of America, Michigan Credit Union League Service Corporation (MCULSC), and Hyperion Partners, a Master Agent for several wireless carriers in the US. We will also aggressively protect our patents along with a comprehensive review of the insurance industry and all major insurers who are billing their customers through measurement of driver behavior and performance."
Intellectual Property Portfolio – as we complete our due diligence of the insurance industry and major insurers who are using driver scores as actuarial metrics for billing, protecting IGEN's patent rights will be the company highest priority in 2023. IGEN's intellectual property portfolio will focus on normalizing the "big data" elements that influence driving habits along with correcting gross errors in assessing driver performance and driver behavior. Reducing what the insurance industry refers to as "rating-errors" is the single biggest opportunity for insurance companies. With an estimated $8B of annual rating-errors attributed to demographics and historical driver data rather than actual driver data, IGEN technologies and patents will improve the accuracy of measuring driver performance and risk. With close to 40 patent claims as part of Patent No. 11,037,378 and Patent-Pending 17/850,250, IGEN's patent portfolio defines the "big data" elements essential for accurate measurements, regardless of the data source. Whether originating from mobile phones, third-party GPS devices installed in vehicles or directly from video cameras and sensors integral to electric vehicles (EV), accumulated data from a minimum of 1M access points will contribute to significant improvements in accuracy and measurement of driver performance.
Consumer Product Brand focus for 2023 will market CUTrak and FamilyShield services to Credit Unions and their members through certified organizations representing specific regions across the US – namely the Association of Credit Union Executives of Puerto Rico (ASEC), comprised of approximately 90 Credit Unions and 1M members. In addition, with the successful deployment in the Upper Peninsula region, Michigan Credit Union League Service Corporation (MCULSC) is expected to expand CUTrak services amongst its members that represent approximately 80 Credit Unions located in seven districts. For each Credit Union program participant in 2023, revenue contributions are estimated to range from $48K to $120K annually per branch depending upon the number of car loans granted during the fiscal period.
Commercial Fleets and Asset Management Brands Medallion GPS and Medallion PRO will be sold through our partnership agreements with Hyperion Partners and the County Executives of America (CEA). IGEN's recent award to provide Fleet Management Services to New York State Counties offers opportunity for Counties and State governments to manage their self-insured vehicles. Initial deployment for the first major County in New York State was completed in late 2022. Subsequent deployments with Counties in New York State are being finalized along with newly enlisted members for 2023. The opportunity base for IGEN Commercial Fleet Services with the CEA is estimated at 12,000 active commercial vehicles with a target market share of 30% for fiscal year 2023.

Not a complete total, just the 69M I believe he's dumped below the bid to date, and these shares since Oct excluding March (enter HIRU) https://otce.finra.org/otce/marketStatistics/monthlyShareVolume
Whoops I had that date wrong. It's Oct 20th when BLAS showed up, but the rest is the same. Dumping below the bid and no idea when he'll be gone for good
Here's the first time we saw BLAS on L2: https://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=170245830
Replying to: https://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=170245613
"This new co-packing agreement with Voss Water has been in the works for several months now and is a natural outgrowth of our ever-expanding ability to meet large client demand on the West Coast of the United States and our successful production history in servicing other similar national brands. We expect this co-packing relationship to become a significant and ongoing revenue source as we continue to meet their future delivery expectations and our manufacturing footprint continues to grow. The Company is growing at a rapid pace and now includes almost all of the national water bottling companies that are well known to the consuming public."
Staying tuned, LTI here. I expect this to play throughout the entire year 2023 and beyond. Thank you for your insightful posts Poo, which have always come to fruition
"The Alkaline88 1-Gallon is now conveniently accessible to organic food shoppers in every Whole Foods Market across the country," stated Frank Chessman, President and CEO of The Alkaline Water Company. "Initially available in over 200 stores across five Whole Foods divisions, our 1-Gallon product can now be found in a total of 514 Whole Foods Market stores throughout all eleven divisions.
Just saw that, very nice! Once BLAS is totally gone, this should fly. He's had way more shares than I expected

I believe today is the first time in many sessions that we haven't seen an AH print or t-trade suggestion dilution. Hopefully this is the new trend for a while, and we move up
Is buy vs sell volume available days later or longer? If so, I'd like that link too. All I know is today's trading. I do know yesterday had 391k shares traded that were reported in the ?Vol column since I track that as well as double prints for the same amount of shares listed as buys and sells that occur at the same time
Then it's being routed through GTSM, CDEL, NITE, or INTL. They only display the highest bid they represent on L2, and even then will sometimes just show the minimum bid display requirement, which in this case is 10k
Thank you for the update Poo. This will likely play through the entire year 2023 and beyond
The Prolog merger will most likely be finalized. It's been in the works for a while as the two entities have something that can benefit the other
My thoughts are the same as they've been for months. We need BLAS gone for good before this can really move. It's undervalued sure, but until BLAS stops dumping below bid and clogging the ask, we're probably stuck here (or until Kathryn releases blockbuster news)
BLAS has dumped over 55M shares below the bid now since Dec 23rd. It has to end someday, the question is when. I thought it was going to end at 20M but that wasn't the case unfortunately

Chief Financial Officer
Maybe so, or a few large holders. Interesting that BLAS hasn't dumped anything yet today. Maybe he's getting limited or doesn't want to send this to mid teens
