The party's primary industries spokesman Mark Patterson called the promotion of the "Impossible burger", which contains a plant-based meat substitute on some worldwide flights a "slap in the face" for New Zealand's red meat sector.
Speaking of their collaboration with Impossible Foods, Air New Zealand's Inflight Customer Experience Manager Niki Chave said, "We're confident vegetarians, flexitarians and dedicated meat lovers alike will enjoy the delicious taste of the Impossible Burger, but for those who want to stay with the tried and true it will sit alongside our regular selection of menu items prepared by our talented culinary team and consultant chefs".

This is also the first time the burger has been available in New Zealand.
