The plant-based food takeover is happening! We recently shared the exciting news of the Impossible Burger, an all-vegan burger moving into university, company cafeterias, and cultural venues. And now even more exciting news from food technology company, Impossible Foods … their drool-worthy burger is going to be available at EVERY Bareburger restaurant location in the U.S. by the end of this month!
The organic restaurant chain with 44 locations in five countries added the Impossible Burger to one of their NYC locations earlier this year. Clearly, the plant-based addition to the menu went over well because now you can find the juicy burger that “bleeds” nationwide in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Philly. You can search for a Bareburger near you to go get your grub on by using the search locator on Impossible Foods website.
Given the burger’s meat-like texture and flavor, it’s no wonder it’s been called the “future of food.” With more people choosing to leave meat off the menu due to health and environmental concerns, innovative plant-based options are swooping in to fill that demand. This is great news considering global demands for protein are at an all-time high and only stand to grow with the population – sadly, this is coming largely at great cost to the environment and animals. Providing hearty and healthy plant-based protein alternatives in a chain venue, like Bareburger means that more people can have access to options that are better for them and the planet as well.
Impossible Foods just recently announced a $75 million dollar investment to construct a new production factory in Oakland, California and they also recently hinted that vegan seafood could be in the cards next. It certainly seems like the times are changing — and the future of food is, no doubt, vegan.
