In 2019, the food industry is very much interested in natural foods and saving the planet. Plant based burgers are all the rage at the moment with fast food chains jumping on the latest craze. “Beyond Burger” and brand variations have people taking sides on whether or not it is truly healthy for people or how tasty it is.
