Comments Off on KFC partners with Beyond Meat for vegan chicken nuggets

KFC and plant based meat creator Beyond Meat recently shook things up in the quick service restaurant industry by whipping up a limited one-off test sampling of its Beyond Fried Chicken for select fans in Atlanta, Georgia on Aug. 27. Lucky KFC restaurant-goers at a Smyrna, Georgia location got to sample the crispy vegan nuggets near Atlanta’s SunTrust Park. Louisiana-based KFC plans to use their feedback to consider future U.S. restaurant testing and a national campaign for the vegan chicken meals. Related: Beyond’s ‘Meatless Marinara’ sub coming to Subway “KFC Beyond Fried Chicken is so delicious, our customers will find it difficult to tell that it’s plant-based,” said KFC U.S. President and CCO Kevin Hochman . “I think we’ve all heard ‘it tastes like chicken’ – well our customers are going to be amazed and say, ‘it tastes like Kentucky Fried Chicken!’” Testers had the option of accompanying the crispy nuggets with flavorful dipping sauces like the chain’s best-selling Finger Lickin’ Good sauce. The sample menu also featured Beyond Meat Fried Chicken boneless wings covered in Nashville Hot, Buffalo or Honey barbecue sauce to tingle taste buds. Beyond Fried Chicken nuggets were priced at six or 12-piece combo meals (including a side and medium drink) for $6.49 and $8.49, or four-piece à la carte at $1.99. Beyond Fried Chicken boneless wings were offered in six or 12-pieces for $6 and $12 (plus tax). “KFC is an iconic part of American culture and a brand that I, like so many consumers, grew up with. To be able to bring Beyond Fried Chicken, in all its KFC-inspired deliciousness to market, speaks to our collective ability to meet the consumer where they are and accompany them on their journey. My only regret is not being able to see the legendary Colonel himself enjoy this important moment,” said Beyond Meat founder and CEO Ethan Brown. According to CNN , Beyond Meat’s stock shares have catapulted from $25 during its IPO debut in May to its current $150 per share. As of Wednesday, Aug. 28, reports indicated the Beyond Fried Chicken test run was successful and sold out in five hours. +KFC Via The Guardian, CNN, Mashable Images via KFC

Comments Off on Beyond’s ‘Meatless Marinara’ sub coming to Subway

Fast food franchise Subway is jumping on the plant-based meat bandwagon with a meatless meatball sub coming to you soon. Using Beyond Meat’s plant-based meat, which is said to resemble beef in taste and appearance when cooked, Subway will begin selling The Beyond Meatball Marina sub at 685 restaurants throughout the U.S. and Canada in September. Beyond Meat and Subway have joined forces to create the forthcoming Meatball Marinara sub, made using the new Beyond Meatball, and it will be exclusive to Subway restaurants. Related: Alternative meats — are they actually healthier than the real thing? The sandwich institution isn’t the only fast food chain experimenting with meat alternatives to attract those who prefer staying off meat for their health and/or for environmental reasons. Dunkin’ Donuts said it’s testing out a Beyond Meat sausage in Manhattan, while Burger King is offering a meatless version of its popular and longstanding menu item, the Whopper. It is comprised of a patty made by Beyond’s competitor, Impossible Foods, and as of August 8 is available nationwide. Other restaurants opting to offer meatless options include White Castle , Del Taco, Carl’s Jr., Tim Hortons and Qdoba. Many fast food chains are trying to attract flexitarian eaters versus just strict vegans. For example, Subway’s Beyond Meatball sub will be sprinkled with Parmesan cheese, while Burger King’s Impossible Whoppers are cooked alongside the restaurant’s meats. Going meatless is big business as U.S. retail sales of plant-based foods have increased 11 percent in the past year, according to a July report from trade group Plant Based Foods Association and the Good Food Institute, a nonprofit supporting plant-based companies and businesses. Banking institution Barclays is forecasting the alternative meat industry could reach about $140 billion in the next decade. As for Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, the two companies have witnessed gigantic increases in demand. Beyond Meat’s revenues reached $67.3 million in the second quarter, up from $17.4 million during the same period last year — a 287 percent jump. + Beyond Meat + Subway Via CNN Image via Beyond Meat

Bloomberg gives $64 million to anti-coal campaign

Comments Off on Bloomberg gives $64 million to anti-coal campaign

The Donald Trump administration has made a lot of noise about bringing back coal . But with renewable energy soaring , and coal plants retiring, their efforts may go in vain – and a new $64 million donation from Bloomberg Philanthropies could facilitate progress towards cleaner sources of power. Michael Bloomberg , former New York City mayor and philanthropist, said, “The Trump administration has yet to realize that the war on coal was never led by Washington – and Washington cannot end it.” The Trump administration has decried the so-called war on coal. Maybe they didn’t realize pollution from coal-fired power plants used to kill around 13,000 people every year. 7,500 Americans still die from the pollution yearly, but the number is down since the Sierra Club ramped up their Beyond Coal campaign in 2011. Bloomberg’s $64 million will go to that campaign. Related: Renewables keep booming despite Trump administration’s attempts to axe Obama’s Clean Power Plan Bloomberg said the war on coal “was started and continues to be led by communities in both red and blue states who are tired to having their air and water poisoned when there are cleaner and cheaper alternatives available.” Since 2011, 259 coal-fired stations, almost 50 percent of America’s coal plants, have shut down. Beyond Coal aims to replace coal with solar , wind , or geothermal energy. Reuters said coal exports have increased this year, pointing to information from the Energy Information Administration, which said United States coal exports from January to July went up 62 percent, compared against the same time period in 2016. But coal-fired plants keep shuttering. Since Trump entered office, according to Reuters, 10 plants have announced closures, and just last week an energy company said they’ll be shutting down a Texas plant next year. Bloomberg has given over $100 million in total to the Beyond Coal campaign; their original grants helped the effort grow from 15 states to 45. + Beyond Coal Via Bloomberg Philanthropies and Reuters Images via Pixabay and Bloomberg.org on Twitter

Comments Off on The US government is trying to take down egg-free mayo

A group appointed by the U.S. government tried to destroy a Silicon Valley start-up after concluding that the plant-based food company was “a crisis and major threat to the future” of the $5.5-bn-a-year egg industry in the U.S. A series of emails obtained under the Freedom of Information Act shows the American Egg Board (AEB), a US department official, and egg industry executives working together to bring down Hampton Creek who make vegan mayo, plant-based egg replacer and other egg-free products.

Comments Off on Conservationists to Move Rhinos Threatened by Poaching from South Africa to Botswana

After years of unsuccessful cries for protection, some of South Africa’s threatened rhinos are finally being rescued. Conservationists have announced a plan to relocate the endangered animals to Botswana after repeated attempts to enact protections within their native country have failed. Last year alone over 1,000 rhinos were killed for their horns, which are in demand in many Asian countries. But despite conservationist’s attempts to curtail the slaughter, the situation hasn’t improved. In fact, it has only gotten much, much worse.  Read the rest of Conservationists to Move Rhinos Threatened by Poaching from South Africa to Botswana Permalink | Add to del.icio.us | digg Post tags: &Beyond , conservation groups , conserving rhino populations , consevations groups protecting rhinos , Great Plains Conservation , protecting rhinos from poaching , relocating endagered animals , relocating rhinos , rhino conservation efforts , rhino horn , rhino horn Asia , rhino horn demand , rhino poaching , rhino poaching South Africa , rhino protection , Rhinos Relocated , rhinos relocated from South Africa , rhinos relocated to Botswana , South Africa poaching

Comments Off on Faux Meat Throwdown: Would You Eat Sergey Brin’s Lab-Grown Beef Burger or Twitter-Backed Beyond Meat Chicken Strips?

This week we watched as taste testers sunk their teeth into the world’s first lab-grown beef hamburger , which cost $332,000 to grow and was funded in part by Google’s Sergey Brin. Meanwhile, there are plenty of affordable plant-based proteins, and companies such as Beyond Meat (in which Twitter co-founders Biz Stone and Evan Williams heavily invested) provide meat alternatives said to look, feel and taste like the real thing. But which would you rather eat – a burger made from 20,000 strips of muscle and lab-grown fat or chicken strips made mostly with soy protein ? Take our poll below!
