Globally one-fourth of the greenhouse gas emissions come from food production. It includes everything like farming, dairy and meat industries. In fact dairy and meat account for nearly 15% of the emissions. So how can a brand contribute to less land, less water and fewer emissions while selling plant-based meat alternatives?
On this episode Todd Boyman, Co-Founder & CEO of Hungry Planet joins me for an insightful conversation.
The origins of hungry planet
“From the beginning, we approached the opportunity differently. We’d already been eating plant-based meat 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, regenerate our environment, enhance personal health, and increase animal well-being. 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.
