Concerned about health and the environment, Morten Toft Bech launched Meatless Farm Co. in the U.K. in 2018 after two years in development. It made its retail debut in 2019 providing meatless products to Sainsbury’s supermarkets after raising $17 million, and last September was successful with another funding round of $31 million.
Today it is the fastest growing plant-based, meat-alternative company in that country and, with a desire to be closer to the yellow peas from which it gets its protein, looked to Canada, which produced 4.2 million tonnes in 2019.
