About us


We craft products we feel good about. Good for planet, people and animals.
Many of today’s plant-based meat or fish alternatives are processed products like burgers, minced meat, sausages and battered products. Alternatives for unprocessed whole-cuts, such as chicken breast, ribs and fish filet are still rare to find. With our unique production process, we transform plant-based ingredients into whole-cut products that have a remarkable texture, taste and juiciness and are easy to prepare with different cooking methods


How it all started

It all started during co-founder Birgit Dekkers’ PhD project at Wageningen University where she started to work on these products in 2014. Joined by co-founder Ernst Breel in 2019, the adventure of Rival Foods officially took off. Today Rival Foods has established a small scale production to deliver first products to you!
