What makes meat unique? Believe it or not, it took five years of research for Impossible Foods to find out. And as the company’s first employee, Nick Halla was there for every minute. Once they found the answer, they set out to recreate it with plants.
Nick leads corporate strategy, business development and international development. Before joining Impossible, Nick was an expert in food commercialization at General Mills, where he developed and launched several new product lines and designed large-scale food manufacturing systems.
He also has experience in agriculture, having grown up on a family dairy farm, and commercializing new technologies such as solar, energy storage and biofuels. Nick holds a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Minnesota, an MBA from the Stanford Graduate School of Business, and an M.S. in Environment and Resources from the Stanford School of Earth Sciences.
