McCains comments what does it suggest for Maple Leaf foods stock is around 25 52wk high 35. Beyond meat has had a nice run of late 74 to 114. What is McCain telegraphin ? they've gotten into the fake meat biz maybe not as fully appreciated lately as Beyond

Use your taste "Buds " on this one. I have tried veggie burgers but haven't found anything that fooled me . Aside from that this stuff isn't more nutritional than beef so who is the target consumer. Food for thought.

Oscar, pretty well every young person has been taught and believes meat is evil (talked to a teen lately?) so I'd say the future consumers for the less-nutritious and pricier meat alternatives are well-established and growing in number, though I've no idea which particular businesses will prosper or fail.

You crazy??? Maple leaf and maple lodge have the most recalls in meat industry. Stay away from 'chewed up' food. Better to eat rabbit droppings you find in your backyard as snack than pre-packaged meat from these two above.
No wonder life expectancy on this continent goes down.

Bill , you're right . Green new deal religion is the agenda. The way things are going I'm surprised no one has suggested Soylent Green as a necessity to avert the climate emergency.Technically speaking , Soylent green already exists as they are now able to grow meat in the lab so now it's just an ethical debate on offering human lab grown meat as a matter of choice to the consumer. Who wants seconds ?
So then if I had a stake in the game I would try to find out who has best chance of securing contracts to supply prisons , retirement homes and other "conscripted clientele " as they were accurately described as in a book I once read. Also find out who supplies the ingredients .
Rabbit droppings are vegetarian approved

Perhaps Mccain is using the iran controversy to raise the profile of Maple Leafs veg division to compete with Beyond the leader. "Texas" meat eaters take offence but who he's really targeting is the left animal rights eco peace activists who will forgive "listeria" for a nod to their cause. He's using his liberal connections, "ranchers" vote con.

pooreva, StatsCan stats indicate life expectancy in Canada has never been higher than today, though it is true that life expectancy for those over 75 has only gone up a little over the last 90 years.

The Beyond burger is made from peas and mung beans and the Impossible burger from soy. I'm not sure if one is healthier than the other since I don't know which protein is better for you. I do know they are both laden with saturated fat and salt so they aren't healthier than beef or poultry. Having said that, I would definitely buy them over beef or poultry if they were of comparable price to them, as I prefer not to have to eat "food that came from something with a face". Right now they seem to be very pricey.

A lot of people think vegan diets are healthy plus there's a crowd that likes to virtual-signal via their food buying & consumption. I don't see that changing anytime soon so there may be a large market for this stuff in the next few years, may be money to be made for investors.

The word on these Ultra Processed 'Beyond Burgers' is already starting to get out.

Best to invest your hard-earned $$$ elsewhere❗

If you really want a burger made of meat, then why not just make your own and you'll know exactly what's in it. It's about the easiest thing you could possibly make!

If you want to eat vegetarian, don't eat burgers. I don't think any of the prepared ones are any good nutritionally, but there are tons of healthy veg alternatives.
You can make homemade veggie burgers, but in our experience, they don't work out very well and fall apart.

I am indifferent. I eat a burger about once every five years. I don't like them, no matter what they're made of.
I have, however, tasted the ones that A&W sells. I forget the name of the brand. They're pretty good if a burger is what you want, and really do resemble meat taste. I read somewhere that have have created synthetic heme, which does the job. The price, however, is ridiculous, at least to buy them in a store. I think they were $2 per patty.

I wouldn't invest in any of it. Our food habits are going to change a lot in the next few years. They will have to. But who knows what that will look like?

Maybe some of those "ethical" or "socially responsible" mutual funds or ETFs are a way to get exposure to this growing industry without having to try to pick the winners out of the crowd, some research might reveal which ones are buying into this. I'll not change my diet but apparently a lot of folks are so it certainly seems to be a growth area.

I for one, won't be investing in Any of them❗
