Realistic vegetarian meat products hit the mass market via fast food chains

Implications - As consumers become more aware of and concerned with the origins of their food, a shift toward both more natural and plant-based foods has taken place. Though not previously widely available, meat alternatives that closely resemble meat have been gaining traction over the past few years and are now becoming widely available by way of fast food chains. Signifying an openness to more sustainable yet science-based food products, this shift could potentially popularize plant-based diets with an even wider audience.
