You won't want to miss this webinar! The insights from this analysis have been pretty revolutionary in our thinking, guiding greater focus on plant protein enrichment facilities, infrastructure investment, and solutions for key ingredient bottlenecks. Sign up for free! https://t.co/o8aEiKOc8G

Good lord. This is abhorrent. https://t.co/aJAfRMQCbt

I increasingly feel like land use should be *the* most important environmental impact we're all looking at. It's far more irreversible than GHG; once native ecosystems have been disrupted, it's way harder (and longer) to truly restore them, if even possible at all. https://t.co/ZcGD7uZyJX

Great thread with specific examples of how alt protein companies are going above-and-beyond to make their production processes even more efficient, in addition to the environmental benefits inherent in alt proteins relative to animal proteins. https://t.co/tgJl0awXDB

Hearing a lot about plant-based meat lately and want to dive deeper? Here's a one-stop-shop for resources on everything from the underlying food science to the latest market, consumer, and investment data: https://t.co/wvGiUfYwvI

Love this so much! Thanks for the h/t, @carolinebnell! The plant-based meat space has seriously stepped up its game in recent months. If you felt burned by a lackluster veggie dog years ago & swore off the category forever (as I once did), it's a great time to give another try. https://t.co/PNvr6I2bD2

Yesterday from director general of OIE: "This time the situation is more difficult and more risky because we see more variants emerge... Eventually the risk is that it mutates or that it mixes with a human flu virus that can be transmitted between humans." https://t.co/B3ffefqGJo https://t.co/0LDDip1Pkt

NEW: Avian flu transmission to a human reported in the UK. UK Health: "Currently there is no evidence that this strain... can spread from person to person, but we know that viruses evolve all the time and we continue to monitor the situation closely." https://t.co/efnrNjmkxI

Had this yesterday and loved it! Great visibility for the launch in stores too -- two huge panels announcing the new plant-based chorizo took up about 1/3rd of the menu board real estate! https://t.co/r0YRU7D7Hc

Two HUGE nationwide fast food launches of plant-based meat announced this week at major chains, including a big reversal from one CEO. 1) KFC rolling out Beyond Meat plant-based chicken options nationwide next Monday, after first trialing them in 2019. https://t.co/3JjXYXISOK

Excellent piece by @bruunlasse on opportunities of a plant-based workforce transition: "Farmers are transforming old hog barns into productive mushroom farms, replacing chicken with hemp and growing oats where dairy cows once grazed." https://t.co/4lFlUKCTtF

Excellent analysis by @GoodFoodInst's lead scientist for cultivated meat on the significance of the recent fundraise and cost estimates from @FutureMeat1. https://t.co/QG8rj47dKq

πŸ₯›πŸ„πŸ₯œ Two common questions: 1. Are plant-based milks really better for the environment? ➑️ Yes, across most environmental metrics all have less impact per litre. 2. If so, which is best? ➑️ Depends on the metric, there is no winner-takes-all. Post: https://t.co/QGamQxvD4R

The only way to build back a better meat industry is to replace animal carcasses with plant-based or cell-based alternatives, as @LizSpecht and I wrote for @WIRED last year. https://t.co/3rVs9Wlom4

125-year-old seafood processor Handy Seafood just debuted its first plant-based option πŸ¦€πŸŒ±πŸ™Œ It's awesome to see another legacy seafood company recognizing the importance of diversifying its offerings to appeal to a wider consumer base! https://t.co/sqXvrCATaE

Plant-based foods are poised to surge in 2022 as they are predicted to not only go mainstream, but to be preferred by consumers opting for healthier and more enviro friendly foods. #FutureOfFood https://t.co/KjZvOkrT8c

Love this statement by @ChipotleTweets. "Plant-Based Chorizo is our best chorizo ever and proves that you don't have to sacrifice flavor to enjoy a vegan or vegetarian protein." It's not their best *alternative* chorizo, it's their best chorizo period. https://t.co/BARZEwC40B

It’s no longer a secret that raising billions of animals for food is at the heart of so many of humanity’s most pressing problems, from environmental degradation to pandemic risk and more. https://t.co/h00Gz3RYnn

"One of the most immediate, politically feasible, & high-impact ways to address long-term security risks is for the U.S. govt to invest in & accelerate alternative ways to produce meat." -Matt Spence, fmr Dept Sect of Def & @WHNSC sr offcl, in @Slate: https://t.co/5nEL1iUqBK 1/4

.@FutureMeat1 has raised $347M in a Series B roundβ€”the largest single investment in a cultivated meat company to date! They plan to build a production facility in the U.S. and aim to have a product on shelves in late 2022, pending regulatory approval. https://t.co/8TKl7AXjjT

I've been working on this for the last couple months and now I get to share it: Meat/Less β€” a 5-part @voxdotcom newsletter to help people eat well & do good. Tips on what to eat/cook/buy, but also a detailed look into the impact of our food choices. https://t.co/h1YRXIpH5S
