Both companies will work to create plant-based meat that has the same taste and texture as real meat with the help of Lypid's innovative “vegan fat”. Dr.Lalana Thiranusornkit, senior vice president for Food Innovation and New Product Development of CP Foods, announced a collaboration with Lypid, a San Francisco-based food-tech startup and the winner of the recent Asia-Pacific Agri-Food Innovation Summit in Singapore.

“Lypid's vegan fat will create a better experience for consumers," said Dr. Lalana, explaining that 'Fat' is a part that makes meat taste delicious. Lypid is developing 'vegetable fats' to have the same texture, melting point, and oil content as animal fats, which will be the key to more 'real meat-like' taste. Moreover, it has better nutritional value than usual animal fats.
