New plant-based alternatives to meat are rolling out all the time — and luckily, it seems like even more are on the horizon. As reported by VegNews, the Good Food Institute (GFI) has finally awarded its $3 million grant to researchers working on new faux meats. Thanks to this grant, 14 scientists will have funding to develop new meat alternatives. VegNews added that each team will get approximately $250,000 to work on their project.

As GFI explained on its website, the $3 million grant came from just two donors, and 66 teams from 18 countries applied for the grant. Every proposal that GFI read was full of "tremendous potential," which shows how cruelty-free meat alternatives really are the future.
