Vegan sues Burger King over grilling of meatless Whopper

  Vegan sues Burger King over grilling of meatless Whopper A man is suing Burger King because the meatless Impossible Whopper is cooked on the same grill as meat products, the lawsuit alleges. The class action lawsuit, filed Monday in the Southern District of Florida, claims that although the burger chain advertises its vegan option as meat-free, it is contaminated by meat by-product because it's cooked on the same grill as meat products.The suit accuses Burger King of false advertising and benefiting monetarily from offering a vegan option that is not in fact vegan.Burger King declined to comment to several media outlets.

We 're developing cell - based meat –without the animals–so that the world can enjoy the same delicious meat we always have, in a way that's better for the environment, the body and the Cells are building blocks of all food we consume and at Memphis Meats they are the foundation of our approach.

Cultured meat is meat produced by in vitro cell culture of animal cells , instead of from slaughtered animals. It is a form of cellular agriculture.

One of the leading Silicon Valley startups making high-tech, cell-cultured meat says it’s about to build the first pilot production plant in the United States.

California-based Memphis Meats today announced it closed a $161 million Series B funding round, much of which will go toward building the plant in the Bay Area. Once operational, the facility will grow meat from animal cells without having to slaughter a single creature. The plans for a new plant signals Memphis Meats is ready to begin scaling up the volume of meat it can produce, which will eventually help drive the cost of its products down to an acceptable level for consumers.

Impossible Foods' plant-based pork is here, and it's scary-similar to the real thing

At CES 2020 in Las Vegas on Monday, the company debuted Impossible Pork, a plant-based substitute designed to mimic ground meat from pigs. It'll launch Impossible Sausage later this month.

The meat industry is long overdue for innovation. We 're developing cutting-edge innovation to grow real meat without the animals, for the benefit of the planet , the animals and humanity.

Plant - based meat is a food made entirely from plants that serves to replace or replicate traditional San Francisco start-up Memphis Meats is now producing clean meat for US per gram, which is No. The first set of cells needs to be taken from an animal, even if the animal lives happily ever after

Globally, Memphis Meats is only the second cell-cultured meat company to announce plans for a pilot facility. In October 2019, Israel-based Future Meat Technologies said it is building a 10,700 square-foot facility in Rehovot, just south of Tel Aviv. That startup will aim to put a hybrid cell-cultured and plant-based product on the market sometime in 2021, followed by a cost-competitive, 100% cell-cultured chicken product by 2022.

Memphis Meats did not release specific details about where its pilot facility would be located, how big it would be, or how many of its custom-built bioreactors would be housed inside. Bioreactors are crucial components of any cultured meat production facility; they’re where the animal cells will grow and proliferate. CEO Uma Valeti did say, though, that his company’s first marketed meat would be 100% cell-cultured.

Memphis Meats wins million investment as Beyond Meat triples its store space. The first to market have been the plant - based alternatives, including Impossible and Beyond Meats , which They plan to use the m of funding to expand the company and reduce production costs to levels

But only one , Memphis Meats , has Future Meat plans to use the proceeds to expand research and development efforts and build a cultured meat manufacturing facility to begin production next year. Like Impossible Foods, Future Meat plans to focus primarily on beef and to start selling its products

“I don’t want to be first to market unless we are the best on the market,” Valeti says.

The development is a big one for the companies vying to get cell-cultured meat to market. There are around 30 cultured startups around the world, with a handful in the US including JUST, Mission Barns, Finless Foods, and New Age Meats. For years, cultured meat companies have shown photos and offered rare tastings of meat products grown in small batches. Some are approaching the moment when they can start scaling up their technology—and Memphis Meats and Future Meat Technologies have just raised the stakes for those competitors.

The new pilot plans are also noteworthy from a regulatory standpoint. No government on the planet has given cell-cultured meat a green light to be served to consumers. Working closely with the US Department of Agriculture and the US Food and Drug Administration, Valeti says he hopes to work with regulators in his new pilot facility.

Nestlé adds sausages to its range of plant-based meats

  Nestlé adds sausages to its range of plant-based meats Nestlé has revealed that it's adding another plant-based meat product to its selection after the "huge success" of its alternative burgers and grounds. It's launching plant-based sausages in the US and in Europe, and they're supposed to "taste and cook like a sausage should." The version coming out in the US is a pea protein-based sausage under Nestlé's Sweet Earth brand, which was also behind the veggie mix Awesome Burger. It will come in three variants -- Habanero Cheddar, Asian Ginger Scallion and Chik'n Apple -- and will be available for purchase in April.

“For the first time, we ’re replacing meat with meat - not a meat alternative. That gets Tyson and Cargill enormously Memphis Meats is trying to figure out a way to increase protein production globally to meet demand Two Years Alone in the Wilderness | Escape the City to Build Off Grid Log Cabin

“The regulators would like to see that we have good manufacturing practices,” he says. “When they come to the plant they should be able to see high-quality cells, high-quality feed, and a clean production plant.”

Valeti said the funding round also helps his company make inroads into markets in China, Australia, and New Zealand. Two of its three lead investors, SoftBank Group and Temasek, are from Asian nations, giving investors in that region of the world more exposure to the work happening in Memphis Meats’ labs (the third is Norwest, of California).

Memphis Meats’ funding round—which will also go toward tripling its headcount from 45 to 135—received additional investments from Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Threshold Ventures, Cargill, Tyson Foods, Finistere, Kimbal Musk, Fifty Years, and CPT Capital. Since its founding, the company has raised close to $180 million, making it the top fundraiser among startups working exclusively on cultured meat. But that shouldn’t discourage competitors from entering the race to scale: Future Meat Technologies is diving into its plant with just $14 million raised.
