PLANETARIANS

The next gen plant-based meat combining the power plants and fermentation.

To address climate change PLANETARIANS makes the best meat combining the power of both worlds: plant-based proteins and fermentation. PLANETARIANS developed a zero-waste tech that allows processing multiple types of plant-based protein sources in their native form into alternative meat by fermentation. The resulting product has a meaty texture, umami flavor and lower costs than traditional meats. PLANETARIANS was featured by Good Food Institute and raises funding to launch a manufacturing facility to sell alternative meat on par with beef.

HOW WE GET PARITY WITH CHICKEN
Our plant-based meat has price parity, and eventually superiority, to animal meat without sacrificing product quality.
We are able to achieve this through innovative processing technology that reduces the #1 cost of plant-based meat - plant protein.
Our first product - plant-based whole muscle chicken - can be produced at the same cost as conventionally raised chicken and at a lower cost than leading plant-based analogs.

CLAIMS CONSUMERS LOVE
Clean. None of the chemicals used.
Zero Waste. Protein extraction discards other valuable nutrients such as fiber and loses up to 25% protein during processing. Planetarians keeps all other nutrients in place.
Low Sodium. Soy Concentrates (900mg/100g) and Isolates (1005 mg/100g) are higher in sodium, which is used for leaching. Planetarians’ chemical-free process leaves 3 mg/100g of protein.

Water-efficient. Planetarians’ process uses 7 liters of water only, compared to 30 liter for Concentrates and 40 liters for Isolates per kg of protein.
Methyl-cellulose and Gluten-free. The fiber kept in protein allows creating a muscle-like texture without extra chemicals and keeps the label clean.
Affordable without losing protein quality. The low waste process brings the costs down and makes proteins affordable for consumers.
