Reducing humanities impact
Impossible Foods began in 2011 with an ambitious goal: To drastically reduce humanity’s destructive impact on the global environment by completely replacing the use of animals as a food production technology.
They observe animal products at the molecular level and select specific proteins and nutrients from greens, seeds, and grains to recreate meats and dairy products, while still delivering the texture and aroma of conventional beef.
Production requires 75% less water & 95% less land
Today’s Impossible Burger requires approximately 75% less water and 95% less land, and generates about 87% lower greenhouse gas emissions than a conventional burger from cows.
Products are produced without using hormones or antibiotics and contain no cholesterol.
Impossible Foods is a cutting-edge FoodTech company based in Redwood City, California.
Their mission is to restore biodiversity and reduce the impact of climate change by transforming the global food system.
To do this, we make delicious, nutritious, affordable and sustainable meat, fish and dairy from plants.
Animal agriculture occupies nearly half of the world’s land, is responsible for 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions and consumes 25% of the world’s freshwater.
We make meat using a small fraction of land, water, and energy, so people can keep eating what they love.
