 Hampton Creek is a technology company pioneering new ways of using plant proteins to bring healthier and affordable food options to everyone. Hampton Creek is a technology company utilizing plant proteins from all around the world to make food healthier, more sustainable, and more affordable. Its philosophy circles around the concept that good food should be better and radically more affordable. The technology Hampton Creek uses is built around a data platform that screens through the 400,000 plant species worldwide and identifies predictive relationships between molecular properties and functionalities. This database enables Hampton Creek to identify species of plant cultivars to improve food for consumers, food manufacturers, and the largest retailers globally. Its Just Mayo product, for example, replaces eggs with Canadian yellow peas. WHY A SUSTAINIA100 SOLUTION? Hampton Creek’s goal is to transform the current food system by making sustainable and healthier food the easy option for all customers. To achieve this, its team of chefs along with experts in biochemistry, bioinformatics, and food science are scouring the world’s plants to find novel ways of replacing animal proteins.

“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.”
