  • Plant-based food is on the rise globally as many are looking to reduce our reliance on animal agriculture and find reliable and consistent sources of protein
  • Andre Menezes and Timo Recker were inspired to create a company that aimed to make saving the planet easy, enjoyable and delicious - thus, Next Gen Foods was born
  • Next Gen Foods secured the largest ever seed round funding of $20M for a plant-based startup and was able to introduce its flagship product, TiNDLE, “ridiculously good chicken made from plants,” to 150+ restaurants throughout Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Kuala Lumpur, Amsterdam and the UAE
  • The key to their success has been their ability to create an asset-light business model that is able to scale quickly to serve new global markets
