Seattle-based Rebellyous Foods has launched a new range of plant-based meat products including nuggets, patties, and tenders.
Backed by HRH Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal bin Abdulaziz Al Saud’s KBW Ventures, Rebellyous Foods aims to make products that taste just like their meat counterparts but are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Christie Lagally, founder and CEO of Rebellyous Foods, said, in a statement,
“Our fans from chefs to individual consumers love our nuggets and have long been asking for patties and tenders,”
Christie Lagally, added,
“We’ve been hard at work creating the next generation of products that taste exactly like one expects when they bite into a chicken sandwich, nugget, or tender: crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside. We believe these are a game-changer and set a new industry standard for taste.”
In April 2020, Rebellyous raised $6M in Series A funding co-led by Clear Current Capital, Fifty Years, and Liquid 2 Ventures. Previous funders include KBW Ventures, CPT Capital, Agronomics, and Vulcan Capital, the investment arm of Vulcan Inc. the company founded by Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Paul Allen.
The latest range of Rebellyous Food products is currently available for retail and foodservice in the US Pacific Northwest.
Prince Khaled recently spoke at Abu Dhabi Sustainability Week and KBW Ventures has recently invested in fish cell seafood company BlueNalu, cell-based meat firm Memphis Meats, and cell-based milk company TurtleTree Labs, where Prince Khaled has also joined the board.
