Auckland-based meat substitute producer 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!
