Animal Welfare Organization Says Plant-Based Fast Food Burgers Are Saving 250,000 Animals A Year

World Animal Protection wants people to think about how each Impossible and Beyond Meat meal represents an animal’s life saved from factory farms and unappetizing treatment.

JEFF KART: ‘World Animal Protection says 2019 was the year that fast food fell in love with meat alternatives… The Impossible Whopper is easy to get, just visit a Burger King. It’s one of at least 18 quick service restaurants serving Impossible Foods. Another nine fast food joints are offering options from Beyond Meat. An animal welfare group called World Animal Protection says it all adds up to the equivalent of around 140,000 pigs and 110,000 cows per year being “saved from the food system.” The numbers are based on estimated sales at national chain restaurants, according to Ben Williamson, U.S. programs director and lead author of the research…

But while the 250,000 total may sound like a lot, it’s just a fraction of the 120 million pigs and 30 million cows killed each year for food in the U.S., and sold in grocery stores and the like. Beyond the gee-whiz factor of the 250,000 estimate, World Animal Protection wants people to think about how each Impossible and Beyond Meat meal represents an animal’s life saved from factory farms and unappetizing treatment.

Williamson says he expects the numbers of saved animals to increase in 2020 as more plant-based products are rolled out nationwide and more restaurants add their own versions to the menu. Also on the horizon: the next generation of plant-based products that mimic chicken and fish. And this will have a larger impact, since these smaller animals are processed in significantly higher numbers’. SOURCE…
