After being named one of Time Magazine’s “100 Best Inventions of 2020,” Impossible Pork Made From Plants is now available at Asian Box restaurants in California, as well as Momofuku Ssäm Bar in New York City! Pork lovers in Hong Kong can also find it in over 100 restaurants in the region starting next month.
First we took on the cow; now we’ve taken on the pig. Impossible Pork has the tender, juicy, versatile flavor and texture of pork... and did we mention that it’s made from plants?
Pork is one of the most popular meats in the world, accounting for about 38% of meat production worldwide. Like all animal meat production, making food from pigs comes with a high environmental cost. Impossible Pork has a much smaller environmental footprint, requiring 81–85% less water, 66–82% less land, and generating 73–77% less greenhouse gas emissions than its animal counterpart, allowing pork lovers to pig out in a way that’s better for the planet.
If Impossible Pork isn’t in your neighborhood just yet, not to fear -- this is just the beginning, and there’ll be many more restaurants around the US serving it up soon.
