Founded in early 2018 and based in Sacramento, The Better Meat Co. is a business-to-business company that helps institutional food sellers achieve their goals of culinary excellence by providing plant-based proteins for foodservice providers and meat processors.
The company asserts that its plant-based proteins are designed to be blended seamlessly into ground meat products, enabling major food users to enhance the taste of their products while improving both health and sustainability — all in a cost-competitive way.
Albina 100 is The Better Meat Co's first product. It is a shelf-stable mixture of plant based ingredients intended to be mixed and served in traditionally full-meat dishes, such as burgers or sausages.
The Better Meat Co has raised $800,000 in pre-seed funding as of August 2018.
