The company that bought chicken-free chicken to supermarket shelves around the country has plans to build manufacturing plants around the world.
“These products are game changers, a world first – try and find anything as good as this in the global market. You can’t. New Zealanders know how to do protein.”
"Tastes like chicken" might be the most overused phrase to describe an unknown foodstuff, but for clean protein company Sunfed it is music to their ears.
Sunfed CEO and founder Shama Sukul Lee isn’t counting her chickens. Her start-up’s Chicken Free Chicken products are launching in Australian supermarkets.
Sunfed is already successful in New Zealand, available nationwide.
Shama Sukul Lee is on a huge mission: to create plant-based meat-replacement products that are clean, sustainable and firmly in the mainstream.
New Zealand plant-based protein company Sunfed has raised NZ$10mn and aims to tackle the Australian market in its mission to go global.
Auckland-based food startup Sunfed has raised NZD $10 million in Series A funding, to lead the charge towards a solar-powered planet.
Sunfed raises $NZ10 million from investors including Australian venture capital firm Blackbird Ventures and Chris Hadley, head of Quadrant Private Equity, which owns the Rockpool Group.
Sustainability is on Lee's mind. The former software engineer chucked in her successful tech career four years ago to create Sunfed Meats, a New Zealand-based company that creates meat out of pulses.
Sunfed featured on TVNZ Sunday's special on the future of the farming industry where Mark Crysell gets a sneak peek at the eagerly anticipated Sunfed Bull Free Beef Burger™.
Auckland-based Sunfed Meats, which has consistently sold out its Chicken Free Chicken in New Zealand, is expanding production to meet big demand.
Sunfed founder Shama Lee talks to Idealog about creating a plant-based meat free meat that cooks and tastes like animal meat, and the implications for New Zealand's food exports.
Health, environmental and animal welfare concerns are all becoming priorities for consumers, which is why Auckland start-up Sunfed Meats is experiencing significant expansion.
Following the raging success of its chicken-free chicken, Sunfed Meats is expanding production, with cow-free beef and pig-free bacon.
"We've got a good problem, which is that we can't meet demand. It's the best time to scale up."
It looks like chicken and tastes like chicken, and people can't get enough of it!
Auckland-based company Sunfed Meats is taking a no compromise approach to producing meat from pulses, reports Rob O’Neill.
Chicken made from peas keeps selling out in New Zealand supermarkets!
"Plants! Not meat at all, whoa, can't believe that," said one person, while another said: "It really tastes like chicken."
With just a handful of natural wholesome ingredients, and clean water-based proprietary techniques, we turn premium protein-packed pulses into delicious meaty goodness. That's it!
Clean. Minimalist. Delicious.
