Who We Are

We're a food company using sustainable ingredients and thoughtful food science to replicate our favorite foods in ways that make them more affordable, less harmful, and really, truly just as delicious. We believe that in our best future, the best foods - the ones we love the most - will not just be earth-friendly, but also easy to afford and hard to resist.

We've taken some of your favorite foods - think peanut butter, coffee & chocolate - and recreated them using upcycled ingredients and innovative food science. From food allergies to climate change and unjust labor practices, the foods you love are in serious need of an upgrade. Our Nut-Free Spreads, Bean-Free Coffee & Cocoa-Free Chocolate are top 9 allergen-free, vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, affordable and most importantly, utterly delicious.

Earlier this year, we were proud to announce our global B2B partnership with Cargill and our $52 million Series A+ raise, in a round co-led by Level One Fund and Horizons Ventures, bringing our total funding raised to over $94 million. This funding is earmarked for hiring additional headcount, meeting greater than anticipated consumer and commercial demand, funding expanded manufacturing facilities, and building out our foodservice channel. It is a great time to join us on our voyage!

How We Work

We're a rapidly growing team who value diversity in all its forms. We love adding new perspectives and appreciate those who ask questions that help us challenge assumptions, explore new directions, bias towards action, and improve what we've already built. We are a group of like-minded difference makers. Curiosity drives our development. We have tenacity and a risk-taking mentality at every level of our organization to keep challenging normalcy. We believe it's our responsibility to create an environment in which every person can bring their full, authentic selves to work. We push each other to be our best and make every stakeholder proud.
