blue horizon Invests in Outstanding Foods
blue horizon has recently expanded its plant-based foods portfolio with an investment in Outstanding Foods. With this investment, blue horizon hopes to support companies that will bring plant-based foods to previously untapped market segments. Bacon-like snacks are just one such segment that needs more plant-based options.
Outstanding Foods was founded with the mission of making it easier for anyone to eat more plant-based foods because they taste “addictively delicious!” The company’s first product, Pig Out Pigless Bacon Chips, will hit stores in the US this year, adding to the variety of plant-based snack products available to consumers.
Outstanding Foods has created a new innovative category of savory snack foods that taste just like crispy bacon. What’s more, they are 100% plant-based and are tasty as hell! The patent-pending formula and process has been perfected by the renowned chef Dave Anderson. Chef Dave led product development at Beyond Meat for 4 years, was cofounder of Hampton Creek, and owned the award-winning restaurant Madeline Bistro in Los Angeles.
Bill Glaser, founder and CEO of Outstanding Foods, says: “We’re very pleased that blue horizon is a shareholder of Outstanding Foods. It’s investors like Blue Horizon that provide the resources and support to allow us to develop innovative products, procure intellectual property, implement marketing and sales, and hire the best team. Therefore we can fulfill our mission to make it easier for anyone to eat more plant-based foods because they taste addictively delicious!“
Roger Lienhard, founder and CEO of blue horizon, adds: “As we’re always looking for innovative approaches to plant-based foods, we at blue horizon are delighted to include Outstanding Foods in our portfolio. We hope to develop alternatives to all animal-based products in the future, and Outstanding Foods will fill in some of these crucial gaps.”
