This recognition from Fast Company alongside some of the most innovative, purposeful, and meaningful companies in the world is an honor, and a waypoint on our path toward both what is possible and what must still be done to preserve our food system and ultimately feed our planet’s 9 billion (and growing) inhabitants. It is up to institutions — corporations, policy makers, and other gatekeepers — to help drive change and grow understanding of the true cost of food and make it more affordable, more accessible, and more acceptable for the eaters of the world to make thoughtful food choices.
An end-to-end system designed to bring more protein, more profitably, to more people — and at less environmental cost — than ever thought possible, benefitting the growers, the makers, and the eaters along the way. This is coming to life through our grower network with PURIS Grains, our R&D and innovation lab with PURIS Holdings and our unmatched, domestic vertical supply chain with PURIS Proteins.
The public’s perception toward plant-based eating is accelerating at breakneck speed thanks to the outspoken brands that have come before us, and we owe them (many of whom are PURIS partners) for their trailblazing work, but they’d be the first to admit this is just the beginning of the journey. Here’s to another 35 years of dreaming up with better ways to feed people and nourish the planet. Together, we are one.
