It began as a passion project. We wanted to do something meaningful to solve two of the world’s most pressing problems: the HEALTH OF HUMANKIND and the HEALTH OF OUR PLANET.
From the beginning, we approached the opportunity differently.
We’d already been eating plant-based for decades, but we knew that in order to transform our food system, we had to create delectable plant-based meats to fit our modern lifestyle. We set out on a mission to craft a wide range of proteins to feed our growing human family, prevent environmental destruction, avert global pandemics, and reduce animal suffering. Crucially, they had to be a simple switch for conventional meat, while also delivering superior nutrition.
After a decade of culinary R&D, we developed the most authentic and complete range of plant-based meats available in the world – and the innovation continues. Our expert chefs perfected Hungry Planet Chicken™, Beef, Pork, Italian Sausage, Chorizo and Crab, enabling more chefs and customers to make an easy plant-based swap in any recipe, any cuisine.
Hungry Planet® is now in thousands of venues across the U.S., Australia and New Zealand including fine dining, fast casual, university, hospital, retail, grocery, deli, and, through our philanthropic arm, we’ve helped provide over 1 million Hungry Planet® meals to public K-12.
Our greatest hope is that we’re making it easier for people to choose plant-based meats, and we believe that our collective food choices have the power to heal our world.
