ASIA’s richest man Li Ka-Shing and Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang have invested US$23mil (RM76mil) in a California-based company that produces artificial chicken eggs, Sin Chew Daily reported.
The company, Hampton Creek Foods, is producing the artificial eggs using ingredients from 12 types of plants.
