Impossible Foods: Friends of the Earth is ‘anti-science fundamentalist’ group

| | June 28, 2018

This article or excerpt is included in the GLP’s daily curated selection of ideologically diverse news, opinion and analysis of biotechnology innovation.

For more than a year, the non-governmental organization Friends of the Earth (FOE) has been trying to malign and defame Impossible Foods because we use genetic engineering to make delicious, wholesome meat, using simple plant ingredients, without the disastrous environmental impact of animal farming.

Why would a nongovernmental organization purporting to “champion a more healthy and just world” launch a smear campaign against Impossible Foods, a startup whose entire purpose is to eliminate the world’s most destructive technology?

Simple: The US wing of FOE is an anti-science fundamentalist organization that wants to eliminate genetic engineering at any cost, including the lives of people, the health of the planet, and even FOE’s own credibility. This is an organization on the wrong side of history, doomed to irrelevance for failing to acknowledge and embrace reality.
