Hi. We're Impossible Foods, and we make meat, dairy and fish directly from plants. Founded in 2011, our mission is to make the global food system truly sustainable by eliminating the need to make food from animals. Why? Animal agriculture uses a tremendous amount of the world's natural resources: it's responsible for 15% of global greenhouse gas emissions, consumes 25% of the world’s fresh water, and occupies nearly half of the world’s land. But we knew that facts wouldn't feed cravings. So in 2016, we launched our first product, the Impossible Burger: meat made from plants, for people who love to eat meat. Delicious, nutritious, and made using but a small fraction of the land, water and energy used to make meat from a cow.
Patrick O. Brown, MD, PhD, is the CEO and founder of Impossible Foods. He's a former Howard Huges Medical Investigator, inventor of the DNA microarray, member of the National Academy of Sciences, recipient of the American Cancer Society Medal of Honor, and a proud grandfather.
