Meatless Meat

There are a number of meatless meat companies (Impossible Burger, Memphis Meats, etc.) working to claim their stake (pardon the pun) in the beef industry. As a producer of beef, how concerned are you about the meatless meat industry? Do you think it will have an impact on the beef industry in the next five to 10 years or is it a fad that will pass with time?

 

Thanks for your insight!

Re: Meatless Meat

Not concerned about "meatless meat."  Other than items like tofu, I am barely aware of meatless meat-like protein options.  I did hear about chemically created meat a few years ago in the news.  If I remember correctly the cost of creating it was outrageous.
