Plant Based Burgers in the news this week.
It seems that each and every week more plant-based burger news is hitting the stands and consumers are certainly talking. The plant-based and vegan meat and burger movement look set to stay and certainly isn’t going away any time soon.
So what is plant-based meat?
Plant-based meat is any meat made using plant, pea or soy protein rather than the traditional animal proteins of cows, chickens, ducks, and pigs.
Whilst some critics say plant meats are ‘unnatural’ we think that Beyond Meats CEO makes a very compelling case for the definition of what meat really is (in the video below).
Locally here in Australia we have seen the recent introduction of the ALT MEAT Co. burgers, sausages, and mince and have been incredibly impressed with their offering through Coles.
So whilst this is now such a hot topic in the media, we thought we would take a look at the week in news from some of the big and small plant-based companies from around the world.
