Rescuing ugly produce to create novel plant-based meats
Headquarters Seoul, South Korea
Zikooin Company develops plant-based meat made from upcycled grains, oats, and rice that otherwise would be thrown away due to aesthetic imperfections. As food tech experts, Zikooin developed a patented and innovative technology called 'protein extrusion' that gives their products a meat-like texture. Rather than attempting to compete with common Western meat products like hamburgers and hot dogs, Zikooin's plant-based meat brand UNLIMEAT (Unlimited Meat) are inspired by traditional Korean cuisines such as Korean beef dishes and bulgogi. Moreover, their flagship product is sliced beef which is the most standard shape for Asian meals. UNLIMEAT slices are sold at all Subways in South Korea as well as on vegetarian-friendly Dominos' pizzas. Vegan and cholesterol and trans-fat-free, UNLIMEAT is the next generation of superfood with 26 grams of protein, competitive with actual meat products. From vegan to vegetarians, UNLIMEAT can be enjoyed by anyone who wishes to take care of the planet.
- Raised over USD$28M to date.
- Launched plant-based menu with global franchises in/out of Korea (Domino's, SUBWAY(400 stores), Paris Baguette(4,000 stores))
- Rapidly expanding the global market (Hong Kong, Vietnam, China, Taiwan, US, Australia, etc.)
