Finnish plant-based brand Gold & Green claims it has managed to mimic the nutritional profile of meat by blending pea, fava beans and oats to get the right amino acid balance.
It sells its range of plant-based meat alternatives (available in pulled oat, sausage, burger or meatball format, for instance) in Finland and Sweden.
According to Liisa Tervinen, design manager, the patented production process is “natural and mechanical”.
The company was founded in 2015 and sales were so strong it built its own factory within the first year, Tervinen said. It recently built a second factory in Sweden to serve export markets and has the capacity to fully scale up production, she added.
In 2016, Finnish manufacturer Paulig acquired a 51% stake in Gold & Green.
