Soy, seitan, lupines, green spelt and the like have been on everyone’s lips for a long time as bases for meat alternatives – in the truest sense of the word.

This has resulted in various products, all of which, according to the company, are ‘enjoyable, plant-based and sustainable’. We asked Mr Oliver Schenkmann – one of the founders of this new enterprise – to briefly introduce the products and the business model in more detail.
