Meat-alternative giant Impossible Foods is about to launch its first retail product.
Consumers will soon have access to 12oz packages of the brand’s ground-beef alternative, which they can prepare at home.
While this is the first retail launch of the product, which controversially required animal testing to be approved by the FDA, it is already available at a number of restaurants. Chains stocking the brand’s meat alternatives include Burger King, Little Caesar’s and Bareburger. The product has proven successful with meat eaters, and plant-based diners alike.

This is based on the fact that animal testing was used in the early stages of the meat alternatives’ development.
