Beyond meat is a company that is creating meat by chemically and mechanically altering plant proteins to create a product that tastes and feels like meat, but isn’t. Their CEO Ethan Brown calls it the solution to the four main problems the meat industry struggles with- climate change, animal welfare, natural resources, and human health. They aren’t the only ones who believe in this solution. The Obvious Corporation, Kleiner Perkins, and Bill Gates are major investors funding their experimental products (1). They’ve developed a pretty sophisticated chicken imitation that has received some very positive reviews by taste testers. This is a very promising alternative to meat that will definitely have some exciting developments in he upcoming years.
