Bill Gates-funded start-up Hampton Creek Foods aims to replace eggs.

16 March 2014

A friend of Josh Tetrick, founder of Hampton Creek Foods, told him about this issues with eggs, like the high cholesterol and the bad living conditions of chickens. Furthermore he told about the environmental impact of big agriculture. Because of our fast-growing world population and the consequently growing need for proteins, the world would need a substitute for eggs.

Tetrick decided to set up his own company: Hampton Creek Foods. Their mission is simple: finding plant replacements for eggs.

The plant-based alternatives to eggs and poultry, which are used in the products of Hampton Creek Foods, have a positive effect on the environment reducing the number of animals reared, which requires large amounts of land, water and crops to produce. Furthermore, Hampton Creek Foods focuses on reducing energy waste, pollution and the circumstances in which animals are reared. You can’t deny that Hampton Creek Foods is one of those next generation companies giving us another perspective on the way we eat.

Hampton Creek Foods doesn’t target vegans only, they produce for a broader public.

Bill Gates noticed the company and their mission. He decided to fund this new start up company, because of the necessity to create alternatives to keep on feeding the entire world. A call for important influencers to continue supporting these sort of initiatives.
