Fast-growing St. Louis agtech firm Benson Hill said it will begin commercially selling ultra-high soybean varieties aimed at meeting the demand of the growing plant-based meat industry.

“In the next 10 years, the projection is that the alternative meat market will be about $140 billion. We know that soybean is the No.1 protein source to meet that market demand. For us, it’s matter of how quickly can we scale these lines in order to help contribute to meeting it,” said Benson Hill co-founder and CEO Matt Crisp.  Learn more about this significant milestone via a St. Louis Business Journal feature.
