Btw, after the impossible not being available for at least the last three months supply is finally starting to trickle back into my warehouse in the Midwest. Unbelievably customers are all about it and say it is way better than the beyond burger. Only available in bulk though no patties

Subway is the latest to menu plant based meat with their meatball sub. Now why would these national chains allow a manufacturer the rights to create the proprietary product that consumers develop a bias for? That flies in the face of my experience in national accounts where proprietary products/formula is most times owned by the retail chain and that helps justify their 8% of sales charged to franchisee's----- and no system is more skewed toward franchise ownership than Subway.  Hmmm...

Impossible patties are available thru Sysco @ least in So Cal. Can't believe FDA approves of factory farmed beef? This is not the most balanced way to eat a healthful plant-based diet, It's junk food for sure, but at least it is cholesterol-free, and far more sustainable. Damn tasty for a splurge. What's all the resistance about boyz?

Had one Friday and I was impressed. I last tried the Impossible a year ago at another Causal Dining chain restaurant and it was just okay. I would have the Impossible Whopper again.

This scam has to be driven by the planned "green initiatives" out of the City of London

Why is USDA championing “phony” milk/meat? (p. 11): Pete Hardin lambastes former USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack and present USDA chief Sonny Perdue for their support of “phony” milk and meat, respectively. Under Vilsack’s tenure at USDA, the department developed genetically-altered yeast cultures to create dairy protein substitutes. Soon, the Perfect Day company is preparing to market that “stuff” (for lack of a four-letter word) to consumers. And Perdue is crowing about how cell-cultured meat products (beef, fish and poultry) will benefit U.S. agriculture and help feed the world. What portion of U.S. agriculture does our nation’s overstuffed ag chief imagine will benefit from cell-cultured meat products produced in laboratories. Livestock farmers won’t benefit. Grain producers won’t benefit. We’ve heard all this “feed the world” technology horseshit before – when Monsanto was trying to cram recombinant bovine growth hormone down the throats of suspicious consumers.

Swiss based commodity speculator Cargill is investing in these phony meat products.
