Largest ever funding round for plant-based meat. Even more ridiculously good chicken for you.
15 February 2022
We’ve got news! Next Gen Foods, TiNDLE’s parent company, just closed a record-breaking US$100 million Series A funding round, which is the most to date for any plant-based meat company. We love the support investors and business leaders are showing our Ridiculously Good chicken made from plants, which can only mean even more good things to come for chicken lovers around the world!
More TiNDLE for everyone.
TiNDLE has been plated in more than 200 restaurants within months of its launch and has quickly grown from its home ground in Singapore to Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Macau, Kuala Lumpur, and the UAE. But there are still many key food hubs of the world to go! With this funding, we are excited to now bring TiNDLE’s game-changing plant-based chicken to the US – partnering both with popular chicken joints that foodies will recognize, as well as through foodservice operations. First up: we’re heading to New York City, and then the South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami this February!
Hear it straight from Andre, our CEO: “There’s no question that the United States is home to some of the best food cities on the planet – and we’re excited to bring TiNDLE to this market and hear what consumers think. The U.S. has long been a target market for us, and thanks to our lineup of fantastic investors who have participated in this funding round, this is only the beginning of our journey in delivering delicious and sustainable foods to reverse our climate crisis.”
There’s fish in the works.
Beyond this ridiculously good chicken supremacy, our parent company is also getting its hands in other exciting plant-based projects. Next Gen is opening its flagship, state-of-the-art R&D and Innovation Center in Singapore, where we will develop and trial whole new products and future categories including plant-based seafood and dairy. We’re partnering with Asia Sustainable Foods Platform’s Food Tech Innovation Centre (FTIC), which will open later this very year!
Naturally, that means we’re also bringing on even more plant-based experts to join our team! Some of the best food technologists and protein scientists, especially with ingredient and product development expertise, are joining Next Gen Foods from across Singapore and the United States.
