Hey, we all know times are changing. Thought you needed animals to get protein? Not any more. We get our protein from plants. Welcome to the age of Alternative Meats. Grown not bred. Here at Alt Meat Co. We’re just passionate foodies who care about our planet. We say it’s same same but different. It looks, cooks and tastes the same as meat, but it’s 100% plant-based. Now you’ve got an alternative choice. Get cooking and tell us what you think.
Agriculture and food consumption are identified as one of the most important drivers of environmental pressures, especially habitat change, climate change, water use and toxic emissions 1. Whilst protein is important for health, animal sourced protein has been linked with health risks.
