Impossible Foods was founded in 2011 by Patrick O. Brown, M.D., Ph.D. to end the use of animals to make food. Instead, we aim to make meat, dairy, and fish from plants.
We started with a simple question: “What makes meat taste like meat?” Our team spent years trying to understand everything people love about meat -- from its sizzle and smell to its taste and nutrition. We searched the plant world for specific ingredients that would recreate those experiences but be better for both people and the planet.
We launched our first product in a single New York City restaurant in 2016. Today, our products are available in tens of thousands of restaurants and supermarkets around the world, and we’re still growing every day.
