“Our team has developed expertise turning plants into food to tackle our biggest undertaking to date: creating seafood made from plants with superior texture and flavour. We know we cannot create meaningful impact without great tasting food consumers want to eat, can afford to eat, and can easily integrate into their daily life. We are thrilled to be able to share the results of our hard work and are looking forward to delighting consumers,” says Founder of Konscious Foods, Chef Yves Potvin, .
Konscious Foods is expanding availability at a crucial time as the World Bank1 reports despite the fact over three billion people worldwide rely on seafood for their protein intake or livelihood, nearly 90% of global marine stocks are now fully exploited or overfished.
“We’re on a mission to change the way people eat,” says Yves Potvin
'We know what we are doing is better for the consumer and better for the planet and extends far beyond our products and I’m proud that all employees have shares in the company and a commitment to driving forward the next era of the 'better for you' food movement.”
