CHICAGO / LOS ANGELES, USA, April 9, 2020 / — Inspired by COVID-19 and consumer and investor demand for healthier, more sustainable foods, including a solution to meat-borne pandemics, plant-based journalist, news expert, radio host and TV Producer, Elysabeth Alfano has launched a new digital show: THE PLANTBASED BUSINESS HOUR. Airing at 1p on the Jane UnChained News Network on Facebook Live and archived on, The Plantbased Business Hour LinkedIn Page and her Awesome Vegans Podcast, Elysabeth talks to the plant-based business leaders who are working on a safer food supply for our future: plant-based foods. Speaking with venture capitalists, CEOs, innovators, analysts, entrepreneurs, start-ups, and more, the conversations cover a myriad of topics from impact investing to the newest plant-based and cellular agriculture innovations.

Plant-based business represents big money. Plant-based business also represents the big solution for a healthier food supply. Meat-borne pathogens are an expensive threat to our physical, financial and mental health, as we are currently experiencing with the Coronavirus. Ebola, Mad Cow Disease, Asian Bird Flu, Swine Fever are all examples of illnesses that exist, spread and begin with eating and handling animal meats.

“During this time of incredible stress and worry, many people want news, insights and solutions as to how things will be different in the future so that we don’t find ourselves right back in this same position. Investors and consumers are interested in the plant-based arena as they search for healthier options and a safer food supply. The Plantbased Business Hour and my interviews on same give the leaders in this sector a platform to share their strategies and advancements in plant-based innovation with the general public. On the show, I share hopeful business news about how many are working to create a better future for us through their business models. Up until now, and with the exception of Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods, plant-based business hasn’t been covered by the media. And there is so much more rhan Beyond Meat and Impossible foods. "

During these ‘safer at home’ weeks, the Plantbased Business Hour will air weekdays, and will mostly likely move to weekly when/if life resumes its previous schedule.

Ethan Brown of Beyond Meat, Founder of Before the Butcher, Danny O'Malley, Chief Communications Officer of Impossible Foods, Rachel Konrad, Clear Current Capital Venture Fund Manager, Curt Albright, CEO of Beyond Investing, Claire Smith, and Miyoko Schinner of Miyoko's Cheese are just a few of the examples of guests on The Plantbased Business Hour with Elysabeth Alfano.

To keep your finger on the pulse of the dynamic, money-making, solution-oriented, plant-based business world, tune in weekdays at 1p on the Jane UnChained News Network for The Plantbased Business Hour with Elysabeth Alfano and find archived episodes on and the Awesome Vegans Podcast.
