    Leonardo DiCaprio Joins the Beyond Meat Family

    Today we welcomed Leonardo DiCaprio to the Beyond Meat family as an official investor and advocate. Our relationship with Leo began a few years back when he first visited our research center and subsequently provided feedback on early iterations of The Beyond Burger. Leo shares our vision that we can positively impact climate change by bringing satiating, appealing, plant-based meats to the center of the plate, and we are thrilled to have his partnership.

    Why This Cardiologist Is Betting That His Lab-Grown Meat Startup Can Solve the Global Food Crisis

    Uma Valeti remembers the first time he really thought about where meat comes from. A cardiologist turned founder, Valeti grew up in Vijayawada, India, where his father was a veterinarian and his mother taught physics. When he was 12, he attended a neighbor's birthday party. In the front yard, people danced and feasted on chicken tandoori and curried goat. Valeti wandered around to the back of the house, where cooks were hard at work decapitating and gutting animal after animal to keep the loaded platters coming.

    Why I became a vegan – and why you should, too

    In early October, I surprised my family, friends and colleagues by announcing that I had become a vegan. Up until then, I wasn’t even vegetarian. I loved sausages, I ate chicken several times a week and I couldn’t imagine living without cheese. I have, of course, known for a long time that animal farming is a nasty business. Like everyone, I have seen those distressing pictures of the conditions endured by poultry, cattle and pigs in factory farms.

    Cattle ranchers sue to return country-of-origin labeling

    Ranchers on Monday sued the U.S. Department of Agriculture, seeking to force meat to again be labeled if it's produced in other countries and imported to the United States. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in Spokane, seeks to overturn a March 2016 decision by the Department of Agriculture to revoke regulations requiring imported meat products to be labeled with their country of origin. That change allowed imported meat to be sold as U.S. products, the lawsuit said.

    An experienced butcher admits: “When we see cancer in the pork, we just cut it and still sell it to customers”

    Most people end up believing exactly what they want to believe, and that includes the truth about the food that they are shoving into their faces. This guy said he’s been a butcher for 30 years and when he sees cancer in the pork he just cut it out then they still sell the meat to customers. Smh. Unfortunately, in the United States today we can’t even rely on the big food corporations to label their products accurately. Just check out what a different new study recently discovered. Some hotdogs were labeled as pork meat only, but were found to contain traces of horse meat after all.

    Commentary: Why It’s Time for America to Tax Meat

    Cheap meat comes at a high cost, and it’s American consumers who foot the bill. According to data provided over email by research firm Technomic, the average fast food cheeseburger costs $4.02, but that price tag doesn’t take into account a number of invisible external costs, also known as “externalities.” These include poisonous methane emissions from cows that accelerate climate change and higher health care costs associated with unhealthy diets, which are ultimately paid for by society.

    Where’s the beef? For Impossible Foods it’s in boosting burger sales and raising hundreds of millions

    Any company that’s looking to replace the more than 5 billion pounds of ground beef making its way onto tables in the U.S. every year with a meatless substitute is going to need a lot of cash. It’s a big vision with lots of implications for the world — from climate change and human health to challenging the massive, multi-billion dollar industries that depend on meat — and luckily for Impossible Foods (one of the many companies looking to supplant the meat business globally), the company has managed to attract big-name investors with incredibly deep pockets to fund its meatless mission.

    Kroger ground beef recalled after consumer found plastic in meat

    A recall has been issued for about 35,464 pounds of raw ground beef, including some products sold at Kroger that may contain hard plastic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service said Wednesday.

    Don’t listen to Big Cattle — lab-grown meat should still be called "meat"

    Lab-grown meat is on its way, and the government is trying to figure out how to regulate it. This week, the US House of Representatives released a draft spending bill that proposes that the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) regulate lab-grown meat and figure out how it should be labeled — which is a contentious topic since Big Cattle doesn’t want it to be called “meat.” Regulation is important, and there’s plenty more to learn, but the USDA shouldn’t be the only one regulating. And when the product comes to market, yes, it should be called “meat.”

    Lab-Grown Meat Is Getting Cheap Enough For Anyone To Buy

    In 2013, producing the first lab-grown burger cost $325,000. By 2015, though the cost had dropped to around $11, Mark Post, the Dutch researcher who created the burger, thought that it might take another two or three decades before it was commercially viable. But the first so-called “clean meat,” produced from animal cells without an actual animal, may be in restaurants by the end of 2018.

    Why plant protein is better for you than animal protein

    It’d be great if a burger-a-day diet was healthy. Don’t get me wrong—it’s not the worst. You’ve got protein in there and hopefully some veggies on top (and on the side) , and even some fiber from the roll (you used whole grain, right?). Unfortunately, study after study shows that meat as a protein source just isn’t that healthy. It’s far better to get that necessary protein from plants. But why?
