From there, we’ll be looking to partner with renowned distributors and producers in the food and beverage technology space to elevate us to the next echelon not only in Europe but beyond as well.”

The company’s UK operations has the same goals as the U.S. operation, which is to establish an ethically sustainable system for food. Planet Based Foods works alongside local growers to source their core ingredient, hemp. The company is looking forward to continuing to promote sustainable food systems while contributing to the UK’s agricultural sector.
