About Hungry Planet
Hungry Planet is the first company to develop a full range of premium plant-based meats -- including beef, chicken, pork, turkey, lamb and crab -- that handle, prepare, cook and taste like conventional meat. Developed to delight the demanding tastes of meat lovers and chefs, Hungry Planet's 100% plant-based meats use fewer resources from planet to production enabling us to nourish a hungry planet while feeding our deepest values.
