Impossible Foods is addressing the most catastrophic threats
facing humanity: climate change and biodiversity collapse. A global
transition to a plant-based food system will turn back the clock on
atmospheric CO2 levels, restore natural ecosystems and reverse
meltdown in wildlife biomass.
The easiest -- if not only -- way to make our civilization
sustainable is to eliminate livestock, the most dangerous
technology on Earth. But humans won't give up meat. So we need to
make meat better -- more delicious and more nutritious, without
animals as the underlying production technology. That means that
making meat sustainably is the most important and urgent problem
for the global scientific community.
Impossible Foods' mission is to completely replace the use of
animals as a food-production technology by offering consumers
everything they currently value about animal products -- and making
products that are vastly superior to their animal analogues.
To do this, we are taking a revolutionary scientific and
market-based approach. We are inventing efficient, sustainable ways
to transform ingredients from plants into meat, fish and dairy
foods that deliver all the pleasures and nutritional benefits
consumers demand, without the destructive environmental or public
Our world-class R&D team has been building the know-how and
technology platform to produce meat, fish and dairy foods from
plants. Impossible Foods is experiencing rapid growth and is
resolutely committed to leading all aspects of the plant-based food
revolution-from discovery to commercial production. The only thing
that will separate Impossible Foods from success and failure is our
ability to recruit more world-class experts.
