Cargill has announced plans to launch a plant-based meat alternative. The company announced that restaurants will begin to receive their plant-based offering in April.
According to the report in the New York Post, Cargill will offer meatless ground beef patties in April. “We need to keep all protein options on the table,” Brian Sikes, the leader of Cargill’s global protein and salt business, said in a statement. “Whether you are eating alternative or animal protein, Cargill will be at the center of the plate.”
Tyson Foods and Smithfield Foods have both launched their own plant-based meat alternatives to compete with Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods.
