We craft food we feel good about

Working at Rival Foods

Rival Foods stands out as a pioneering Dutch FoodTech startup with a passionate commitment to crafting innovative plant-based meat alternatives. We produce a variety of unique products including Chicken Filet, Boneless Ribs, Pulled Chicken and Pork, as well as several other innovations that are currently under development. What truly sets our creations apart is the authentic whole-muscle fibrous texture, which is created through a self-developed and patented technology that enables the unique recreation of meat products to enrich a great variety of cuisines in a sustainable and healthy manner.

Rather than competing with other companies on processed meat products such as burgers and sausages, Rival Foods focuses on the other 50% of the meat market, the so-called whole cuts that are especially crucial for the food service industry. By only using a very limited amount of natural and plant-based ingredients, we promise our customers a nutritious and protein-packed selection of cruelty-free meat alternatives that are good for the planet, people and animals.
