The Better Meat Co

The Better Meat Co is a food technology company located in Sacramento, California, and founded by Paul Shaprio and Joanna Bromley in 2018, making plant-based proteins for food service providers and meat processors.

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.
