According to Upstart, former Burger King chairman Brian Swette is the force behind Sweet Earth Natural Foods: a relatively new company focused on providing healthy plant-based proteins.
The article explains, “From the looks of its products, which include seitan, veggie burritos, and quinoa and lentil burgers, it would be hard to guess that its founder was once a board chairman of Burger King and a top executive at PepsiCo.” But that’s exactly the case.
The author continues, “Brian and Kelly Swette launched the company about two years ago, operating out of a 35,000-square-foot site in Moss Landing. Since then, they've produced 425,000 pounds of plant-based proteins, which is the equivalent of 280,000 chickens.”
Not only is this terrific news for animals; it highlights the growing business opportunities within the vegan food market, which are directly linked to increasing interest in vegetarian eating!
