Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods are Champions of the Earth


In New York, the United Nations named Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods the 2018 Champions of the Earth for Science and Innovation for their breakthrough alternatives to meat-based food products.

“This proves that positive climate action can taste even better!” Erik Solheim, head of UN Environment said. “Saving the planet requires something of a gastronomical rethink in some parts of the world, and Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods prove that this doesn’t mean our taste buds are making the sacrifice.”

Working with top scientists to achieve breakthrough approaches to their respective products, Beyond Meat and Impossible foods are delivering sustainable choices to consumers worldwide. Livestock cultivation is responsible for 18 percent of the greenhouse gas emissions in the world and together the process employed by these Champions of the Earth aims to show the world ecologically conscious decisions don’t have to mean sacrificing quality, convenience or in this case – taste.
