Amidst an international uproar directed at Air New Zeland over the decision to offer the vegan Impossible Burger as an in-flight meal, one surgeon has spoken out in favor of the meat-free option.

Earlier this week, New Zealand acting Prime Minister Winston Peter publicly denounced the plant-based burger, stating, “I’m utterly opposed to fake beef.” According to Peter, New Zealand should have prioritized offering meat from local industries as opposed to the American-born Impossible Burger.

Dr. Mark Smith, a Dunedin-based surgeon who specializes in bariatric weight loss surgery, told the Otago Daily Times that he found the aggressive attitude towards the Impossible Burger to be “dismaying.”
