Just two plant-based food companies have helped spare at least 630,000 animals’ lives in 2021, and that’s just in the US.

Non-profit World Animal Protection (WAP) collated the data, and stresses that the actual figure is likely significantly higher – nearing to one million.

The international charity looked at some of the US restaurant chains offering Beyond Meat or Impossible Foods’ products, such as Burger King and Panda Express.

Given that the calculations only scratch the surface of the plant-based movement, WAP believes the figure is closer to one million animals in the US alone.

Nearly 80,000 cows were spared last year thanks to diners choosing Beyond Meat or Impossible Foods products.

For instance, last year Impossible Foods rolled out its products to 20,000 grocery stores – up from just 150 locations.

Roughly 120 million pigs, nine billion chickens, 30 million cows, and 320 million laying hens are raised or killed for food every year in the US. »
