Impossible Foods and the Plant-Based Opportunity in Asia >October 24, 2019
What makes Asia such an important focus for Impossible Foods at this time, and how important has it been for the company to launch initially in Hong Kong?

We want to make Impossible Foods’ product available everywhere, but most urgently in the region where meat consumption is growing exponentially. Similarly, Hong Kong has more restaurants per square foot than any other city in the world and is a leader in food and cultural trends, so it made sense for us strategically to start our Asia expansion in the city.
