“Just.” by Hampton Creek, Inc, is pioneering new ways of using plant proteins to offer healthier and more affordable food options to everyone.

“Just.” utilizes plant proteins from all over the world to make food products, such as mayo, dressing and cookies, that are healthier, more sustainable and more affordable. Its philosophy is based on the idea that good food should be better and radically more affordable.

"Eating well is a basic right."

The technology that “Just.” uses is built on a data platform that screens 400,000 plant species worldwide and identifies predictive relationships between molecular properties and functions. This database enables “Just.” to identify species of plants that could be used to improve food for consumers, food manufacturers and large retailers globally. The Just Mayo product, for example, replaces eggs with Canadian yellow peas.

Today’s food system is insane and demands more sustainable options. What would it look like if we just started over? This is what we ask ourselves every day.

Josh Tetrick – CEO, Hampton Creek.
