Europe's Largest Plant-Based Meat Factory To Open In The UK

by Agi Kaja

The largest European plant-based meat factory is set to open in the UK in 2021.

Food manufacturer Plant & Bean will launch a new vegan "meat" factory to help meet increasing demand for vegan products. 

The giant 65-acre facility set to open in Boston, Lincolnshire, creating up to 500 jobs.

The site is due to open in the new year, and the company said it would be Europe's largest plant-based "meat" production facility.

According to Plant & Bean chief executive Edwin Bark producing plant-based food on such a large-scale would help lower prices for consumers.

He said: "Like it or not, the change to eating less [animal] meat is a change everyone needs to think about making to help save the planet."

"We can't continue following the same diet as we do today in 20 or 30 years from now."

He also said that Lincolshire was also a perfectl location due to its surrounding farmland.

"Our dream scenario would be to have a local supply of ingredients," he said. "It's an opportunity for us to truly localise production."
