Begin the scenes at Impossible Foods

You might not have heard of Impossible Foods, but if things go right they could be the game changer in the meat industry. They're making hamburgers in a lab, out of plant materials. Apparently they're very difficult to distinguish from a real beef patty and probably impossible to do so when they're smothered in ketchup and mayo.
