Tough to Swallow

We’ve called them out before. And we’ll call them out again.

Impossible Foods with its Impossible Burger is an impossible disaster for the environment. And with its GMO ingredients, not so great for your health, either.

Last week, an article published on Medium by one of our colleagues in the regenerative ag movement caught the eye of Dr. Shawn Baker.

Baker brought up the article, “Software to Swallow—Impossible Foods Should Be Called Impossible Patents,” to his YouTube followers. Baker agreed with the author’s premise:

“Impossible Foods should really be called Impossible Patents. It’s not food; it’s software, intellectual property—14 patents, in fact, in each bite of Impossible Burger with over 100 additional patents pending for animal proxies from chicken to fish.”

Then Baker followed up with his take on corporate consolidation in the industrial meat industry, and the lack of enforcement of antitrust laws that allow Big Meat companies to unfairly dominate the market—a timely topic, as Pilgrim’s Pride was sued this week for price fixing.
