Seattle Food Tech

Seattle Food Tech is a food manufacturing technology and production company producing plant-based meats. They make plant-based food and plant-based chicken nuggets.

For its first product - chicken nuggets - which will initially be targeted at the high-volume end of the foodservice sector, Seattle Food Tech is using a fairly standard textured wheat protein, safflower oil, an emulsifier, some starch, vegan flavoring and some corn-breading and is designed to perform like a Tyson chicken nugget. The second product - chicken strips - has a similar formulation but also contains some soy.



The company is coming out of Y Combinator's 2018 summer class. Seattle Food Tech raised $1m in a seed round led by Fifty Years, Blue Horizon and VegInvest in April 2018.
