Demand for meat is going up, both in the U.S. and globally, which poses strains on humanity’s ability to sustainably feed ourselves. On average, animal proteins have a heavier footprint than plant proteins. That’s why, for example, replacing 30% of beef with mushrooms in the 10 billion burgers served annually in the US would reduce emissions equivalent to taking two million cars off the roads, according to the World Resources Institute.
We love fully-plant-based meats, yet we also know that they still represent far less than one percent of the total meat market, both in America and internationally. That’s to say that even quadrupling the demand for plant-based meats would result in a situation where still nearly all meat comes from animals.
That’s where blending comes in. By partnering with us at The Better Meat Co., we can help you, our food service customers and meat processors:
