What does your startup do and what is your mission?
Kushal: Naka Food is developing superfood-based products, namely meat alternatives for the market in India. Our products mostly aim to replace products that currently exist, but with more sustainable, healthier alternatives. We use high-quality, naturally derived ingredients in order to create food products that are nutritious and tasty.
The first product developed by Naka Foods was an algae-derived snack bar, which provides a healthier alternative to other options on the market. For our second product, we are developing plant-based chicken. The main ingredients we are using are jackfruit, chickpeas, and spirulina.
Our mission is to help solve inefficiencies in the global food system by introducing more plant-based and sustainable options.
