Impossible Foods’ mission is to make our global food system truly sustainable. Meat has been a delicious, central part of our diet since we lived in caves. But using animals to make meat is a prehistoric and destructive technology: animal agriculture occupies almost half the land on earth, consumes a quarter of our freshwater, and destroys our ecosystems. So we found a way to make meat using plants, so that we can keep eating all the meat we want -- for as long as we want -- and save the best planet in the known universe.
Compared to ground beef produced in the US, Impossible™ Burger production uses 96% less land, 87% less water, and produces 89% fewer greenhouse gas emissions. Learn more about sustainability on our mission page.
