Eye On Innovation – Plant-based meat analogues

“Plant-based meat is created to look like, taste like, and cook like conventional meat. Companies globally are producing remarkable plant-based steaks, mince, burger patties, chicken, bacon and sausages loaded with taste and texture. They are all on a mission to make it easy for people to reduce meat consumption by swapping to a meat-like plant-based alternative.  

As this new food group grows in popularity, these plant-based products are shaking up the meat industry.  And it is more than just the grocery stores who are on board – Burger King introduced a meatless Whopper to New Zealand in 2020 and many other fast-food chains overseas are taking advantage of this growing trend amongst their consumers by launching plant-based meat alternatives. In the States Burger King launched the Impossible Whopper in 2019 using Impossible Foods plant-based meat product. And Beyond Meat’s Beyond Burger, which is available in New Zealand grocery stores, has been a mainstay of fast-food outlets in the USA for some years now.”

Kia ora! Sustainability is at the core of my soul ever since I was a kid. I always strive to finish the food on my plate and live as a minimalist. I love to cut down on waste in order to live sustainably and harmoniously with our planet. This brings me to my passion as a Food Scientist to integrate new technologies into innovative and creative solutions to meet customer demands and market trends and to optimize products and processes for quality, savings and sustainability. To these goals, I have published a Journal on my work on sustainable packaging and patented a new Antimicrobial wash. Nothing is more satisfying than working hard and smart at the workplace and playing hard outside of working hours. I enjoy rejuvenating myself through spending quality time with my two adorable kids and my awesome soul mate and getting close to nature when possible, be it gardening, tramping or going to the beach. I also love to learn about our magnificent universe and how sustainability is working in the grand scheme of things. I strongly believe that Work, Life & Balance is the key to a healthy state of mind, both physically and mentally. I look forward to making a positive difference wherever and whenever I can. Through this Blog, I hope to catalog recent Food Trends and Food Technologies that I come across so that anyone who is interested can have access to it (articles and resources). Please use these resources at your discretion. On top of that, I would also like to share related news and technologies of the future that would help mankind advance towards a Type 1 Civilization. Please feel free to contact me if you would like to share and contribute to the “Resources“. I would like to thank you in advance for dropping by. I sincerely hope that you can benefit from the recent Food Trends and Food Technologies I catalogued. Kind regards | Ngā mihi RenSun Lee
