Washington, DC (CTZNSIX) –
It’s projected that by 2040, 60% of global meat supply will be alternative meat options.
Grocery store shelves cannot keep meat alternatives stocked for long. Meat lovers are choosing plant-based, healthier options instead of the traditional meat products. Companies like Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods seek to revitalize the meat industry with foods that are lower in fat and cholesterol while still serving nutritional needs.
Pat Brown, CEO/Founder of Impossible Foods, says that his company is looking to “completely replace animals [in food production] by 2035.”
The ambitious goal looks feasible as meatless options have found their way to the fast food menus. In August, Burger King added the ‘Impossible Whopper’ to its menu. The sandwich substitutes beef with Impossible Foods’ meatless alternative. Since then other restaurants like Dunkin, Little Caesars, Applebee’s, White Castle, and more have added meatless alternatives to their menu.
According to A.T Kerney, it’s expected that by 2040, 60% of the global meat supply will not come from dead animals. As if its growing popularity among restaurants isn’t evidence enough, meatless companies are also on an upward stock market trend.
