With a name like “The World’s First Self-Sufficient Organic Vegan Cheeseburger,” this burger is already on the menu of a restaurant in London.
But is it sustainable?
And if so, does it taste any better than regular cheeseburgers?
The answer to both questions is “yes.”
For this article, The Jerusalem Provenience is partnering with food producer and food innovator Sarma Foods to review the burger, its meat, and its environmental impact.
The article will also feature a taste test of the burger as it stands today.
For the uninitiated, “Sarma Foods” is an Israeli food production and distribution company specializing in organic meat, cheeses, and other sustainable food products.
The company was founded in 2013 and is now in the process of opening a plant in Israel to produce the burger.
It has received some praise for its work, including the fact that the burger has a zero-tolerance policy on antibiotic use in meat production.
According to the company, its burgers are organic, vegan, grass-fed, and cruelty-free.
Its cheeses and meats are also organic.
Its “sustainability” focus is evident in the company’s website, which includes a list of the “sustainable” and “eco-friendly” practices that go into the creation of the burgers.
For example, Sarma says it does not use artificial preservatives or antibiotics, which are commonly found in other meat substitutes.
The burgers are made from grass-finished beef and are not treated with hormones or pesticides.
Sarma also notes that the burgers have been certified organic by a third-party certifier and that they are certified “specially engineered for meat, cheese, and meat-related products” by a USDA Organic Certification Program (OCP) certified organic lab.
The meat is certified “organic, non-GMO, and free of antibiotics, synthetic preservatives, and artificial flavors and colors.”
Sarma says the burgers are certified for sustainability by the International Meat and Poultry Association (IMPA), which is responsible for certifying organic food, but Sarma also has its own certification agency, which is independent from the IMPA.
The certification agency tests food, including meat, to ensure that it meets the standards of the IMPS Code of Ethics.
Samyas claims the burgers meet these standards, and that the company has done extensive research into the impact of animal products on the environment and the environment’s health.
“We take into account the environmental impact of the production of our products,” the company says on its website.
“Our aim is to make sure that we do not contribute to the environmental problems or to the spread of disease that affect the world.
We have been making the products for many years and our mission is to be environmentally responsible and responsible of our production and consumption.”
Sama Foods claims that the production and quality of its products are “well-known” and that its customers have come to expect its burgers to be as close to sustainable as possible.
“We believe that the sustainability of our business and the quality of our meat products are of paramount importance,” it states.
“Sama’s sustainable approach to food production ensures that our burgers are safe and environmentally friendly.”
The burger’s meat, meanwhile, is “completely self-sustaining,” according to the article.
“The burgers are grown on the land and the whole process of growing them is sustainable,” the article says.
“It takes only 3.5 kilograms of meat to make one burger.”
Samyars meat comes from cows that are raised in small herds and are raised on land owned by the company that produces the burgers in Israel.
“This means that the cows are not confined to the small paddocks where they can graze on grass,” the Sarma website states.
It further notes that all the meat is grown on land that is open to the air, allowing the animals to graze freely.
The company also says that the meat itself is “made with 100% organic, pasture-raised beef.”
“All the meat that we make at Sarma is grass-raised.
We do not use antibiotics in our production process, and all our animals are treated with antibiotics and no hormones, pesticides, or antibiotics residues.
Sarma does not sell any antibiotics, and we are 100% committed to being environmentally friendly,” it says.
Sama says that it does “all the necessary research” and is working to develop its sustainable meat production process.
The report concludes that the products “have been tested and confirmed to be of very high quality.”
As the report notes, “We take our responsibility to be good stewards of the land seriously.
The land that we grow on is the most fertile and productive land in the world, and the land is also very suitable for the production, consumption, and marketing of our burgers.”
The report concludes, “Our burgers are sustainable, and this is the reason why we are the only burger producer in the UK that is certified as sustainable
