Gold & Green Foods makes meat alternatives and other products targeting vegetarian, pescatarian, flexitarian, and meat consumers. The company was founded in 2015 by Maija Itkonen, Reeta Kivela, and Zhong-Qing Jiang, and is headquartered in Helsinki, Finland.
Gold & Green Foods makes their products using Nordic ingredients such as Nordic oats and legumes, and combines them using Asian food technologies mixed with findings from Nordic food science to create their plant-based products.
In 2016, Gold & Green Foods launched their first product line in Finland called Pulled Oats made out of Nordic oats, fava beans, and pea proteins. Pulled Oats are offered in three different flavors: Nude, Tomato, and Ginger.
On September 9, 2016, the Finnish food company Paulig acquired a 51% stake in Gold & Green Foods for an undisclosed amount. Prior to Paulig's acquisition of a majority stake position in Gold & Green Foods, Gold & Green Foods raised over €1,000,000 from private investors.
