Next Gen Foods

Next Gen is a foodtech company on a mission to make leaving a better world for our kids a pleasure, not a pain.

Next Gen uses plants to create delicious and satisfying foods that will make you forget why animals were ever needed for food.

Next Gen was founded in 2020 by Timo Recker and Andre Menezes. The company is headquartered in Singapore.


Next Gen’s first product is called TiNDLE, a versatile, easy-to-work-with, plant-based chicken that has caught the eye of all-star chefs and culinary professionals due to its unique versatility and similarities in taste and texture to chicken from birds.


TiNDLE features the distinctive flavor of chicken, thanks to Lipi™ – the company's proprietary emulsion of plant-based ingredients that mirror the aroma, cookability and savory qualities that typically comes from chicken fat.


TiNDLE is made of nine simple ingredients, all of which are ubiquitous and well known to international regulators and food manufacturers. TiNDLE is now available in a range of iconic restaurants across the East and West Coasts in some of the country's leading "foodie" cities.


Next Gen is backed by Temasek, GGV Capital, Alpha JWC, EDBI, K3 Ventures, EDB New Ventures, NX-Food, FEBE Ventures, Blue Horizon, MPL Ventures, and others. The company raised $100M in Series A round on Feb 15, 2022. This brings Next Gen's total funding to $132.5M to date.
