Planted is a foodtech startup that produce delicious meat from alternative proteins, focusing on the perfect bite and only clean ingredients.

Planted is committed to using only clean and natural ingredients and no additives in all its products - making it a healthy and sustainable option for all. Truly better than animal meat. 

Planted was founded in 2019 by Pascal Bieri, Lukas Böni, Eric Stirnemann, and Christoph Ianni. The company is headquartered in Zürich.
