Impossible Foods was founded to transform the global food system and reduce the impact of climate change by making the world's most delicious, nutritious, and sustainable meat, fish, and dairy - from plants.

Through the revolutionary work of our world-class R&D team, we're inventing efficient, sustainable ways to transform ingredients from plants into meat, fish and dairy foods that deliver all the pleasures and nutritional benefits consumers demand, without the negative environmental or public health impact.

Our flagship product, Impossibleā„¢ Burger, uses 96% less land, 87% less water and generates 89% less greenhouse gas emissions than conventional beef from cows. And the burger is just the beginning. We're working on recreating every animal product, from chicken to fish, with plant-based ingredients that are vastly better for people and the planet.

Impossible Foods has experienced spectacular growth over the last few years, and we continue to lead all aspects of the plant-based revolution - from discovery and innovation to commercial production and consumer education. We're building an amazing team of brilliant, collaborative, mission-driven individuals who take pride in using their diverse skills to contribute to a better world. Our core values include leading with heart, thinking like scientists, and doing the right thing, and our employees embody these attributes in their work every day.
