China's pork void brings Impossible opportunities for mock meat

American plant-based purveyors prepare alternatives in wake of African swine fever

NEW YORK -- Chinese consumers may soon be able to get a taste of plant-based pork products from Impossible Foods, Beyond Meat and others poised to enter a meat market traumatized by African swine fever.

American mock-meat producer Impossible Foods is working on pork-related products and talking to potential partners for a speedy entry into China, while Hong Kong-based alternative-protein retailer Green Common, a distributor for Nasdaq-listed and U.S.-based Beyond Meat, will launch a store on Alibaba Group Holding's Tmall online shopping site later this month.
