" is a lie. While some big companies do have vegan products, they have much more at stake concerning their much larger meat and dairy operations. Furthermore, sole dairy and/or meat companies far outweigh sole vegan companies in terms of profit and power.
Veganism is as much a financial force as the meat and dairy lobby.

Nonsense. The cattle industry is a giant compared to the trending beyond burgers. They evdn get help from the feds to shoot wild horses that use graising land.
Two companies making headlines, and money, in this space are US-based Impossible Foods and Beyond Meat, both of which have received the UN’s highest environmental honour, the Champions of The Earth award.
These innovators, described by UNEP as “plant-based revolutionaries,” invested in research to strip the basic building blocks of meat down to protein, fat, water and trace minerals, recreating meat entirely from plants—at a fraction of the cost to the environment.
