COLORADO GOVERNOR URGES STATE AGRICULTURE SECTOR TO GO MEATLESS 08/19/2019

Colorado Governor Jared Polis urged the Department of Agriculture (DOA) to move toward producing crops to support the growing plant-based meat industry during a recent gathering at a new DOA research facility in Broomfield, CO. In between bites of Burger King's new plant-based Impossible Whopper, the governor explained that meatless meat is poised to be a leading industry in the future, akin to marijuana, hemp, and blockchain technology. The governor urged the Department of Agriculture to consider that the plant-based patty is made with crops that could potentially be grown in Colorado, stating, "Everything that's in this was grown on a farm." During the discussion, Polis—whose partner, first gentleman of Colorado Marlon Reis, is vegan—promised to buy 100 Impossible Whoppers for the employees of the newly opened facility to encourage the state to capitalize on the booming plant-based meat industry.
