• Rebellyous Reveals “World’s First” Vegan Nuggets at Price Parity With Chicken

    Seattle’s Rebellyous Foods announces that, following three years of development, the company has produced what it says are the first restaurant-quality vegan nuggets at price parity to poultry, stating that these first iterations will allow the company to eventually outperform animal-based nuggets.

    “Our team is now working on the successor which will beat the competition … chicken”

    Rebellyous, founded by former Boeing engineer Christie Lagally, says the nuggets were created using a proprietary system that will “reinvent” the process of producing vegan meat, fulfilling its original mission to make vegan meat affordable through the use of innovative technology.

    Reinventing the process of manufacturing plant-based meat

    The nuggets were created with Rebellyous’ patented novel production equipment called the Mock 1S, which has five patents pending, and according to the company “re-invents the process of manufacturing plant-based meat with continuous, automated, self-contained processing equipment and methods” which will reportedly enable the following:
    • 90% reduction in production workforce costs through automation
    • 10% reduction in energy costs by eliminating the need for a chilled environment
    • 1/3 of the footprint on the production floor vs. current production methods
    • 1/4 reduction in sanitation staff, reducing labor costs further
    • 90% reduction in material waste through continuous production
    • 100% elimination of re-work for work-in-progress

    “Rebellyous Foods was founded to solve some of the major issues inherent in current plant-based meat manufacturing: quality, consistency, and price. We are thrilled that our Mock 1S passed all functional tests,” enthuses Lagally.

    “Our team is now working on the successor which will produce Rebellyous nuggets, patties, and tenders at 95% lower cost of manufacturing, and beat the competition … chicken!”
