Leonardo DiCaprio is investing in a plant-based food producer that makes the Tesla of meat-free burgers.
Beyond Meat is committed to “conserving natural resources and respecting animal welfare” in its bid to make a “positive impact on climate change”.
The company’s burgers, made from plant proteins, are available in supermarkets across California, to students at Yale and in a city which eats more meat per head than any other.
“Livestock production is a major contributor to carbon emissions. Shifting from animal meat to the plant-based meats developed by Beyond Meat is one of the most powerful measures someone can take to reduce their impact on our climate,” DiCaprio said.
