via Facebook

Hampton Creek, the company best known for its eggless, plant-based mayonnaise product, unveiled its efforts to develop meat made by feeding plant material to animal cells. The company has been quietly working on this for the past year.

The company plans to release its meat product by the end of 2018 and will cost at most 30% more than the same product from mainstream food manufacturers, according to the Wall Street Journal.
