SINGAPORE, November 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Shandi Global (Shandi) is proud to announce his launch and opening of that of Singapore largest plant-based chicken manufacturing facility following a second round of seed funding to commercialize and scale Shandi’s unique and proprietary plant-based chicken products. Shandi produces plant-based chicken products in various formats such as patties, pieces, strips, strips and drumsticks.

Shandi, which means “because we care in Hebrew”, was founded on the principle of creating truly sustainable, affordable and nutritious meat alternatives that could benefit millions, if not billions. The reality of a global food shortage as the world’s population continues to grow prompted its founders to continue to innovate and while searching alternatives for a sustainable food source for the whole world, and for which Shandi was designed.

Founded in 2019 by Dr. Reena Sharmaentrepreneur and research veteran and Dr Gaurav Sharmaan expert in the food flavoring industry, the food technology company uses a 5-patent process that uses only non-genetically modified (GMO) natural ingredients such as pea protein, chickpeas, quinoa, seeds flax, brown rice and coconut. oil, to develop and manufacture their plant-based chicken.

Shandi has succeeded, through its proprietary technology, in recreating a plant-based product that smells and responds to cooking, almost exactly like meat. The meat texture of different parts of a chicken differs before and after cooking, as does its taste. This changing natural characteristic inherent in meat has never been successfully recreated in a plant-based product before.

Easy switch to plant-based chicken for restaurants

Shandi’s technology is the first in the world to have been able to introduce this natural changing characteristic of meat into its product, making it almost indistinguishable from real chicken meat. More importantly, due to its similarity to real chicken meat, Shandi has created a viable and versatile alternative meat choice that can be easily deployed in any kitchen, for making chicken drumsticks and chicken curry that taste and feel like real meat.

Thanks to the versatility and ease of use of the product, chefs do not need to experiment and recreate entire menus to adopt this new offer in their kitchens. Ingredient compatibility is a major deterrent for food establishments to replace current suppliers, as changing a single ingredient can affect the taste of the dish and their entire kitchen operations. This probably explains Shandi’s rapid entry into the market – in just 12 months, Shandi has been accepted by more than 50 food establishments, which serve more than 18,000 people in Singapore every day.

Highest protein content in plant-based foods, on par with real meat

Additionally, Shandi’s plant-based chicken is the only one in the world to have a protein content of almost 30%, on par with the protein content of real chicken meat. This makes Shandi’s offering most appealing to schools and hospitals who have begun to offer Shandi’s plant-based chicken on their menus as a healthier, more sustainable option without sacrificing the benefits of protein for those on the go. on a meatless diet.

Long-term healthy and sustainable food for the world’s population

Shandi has chosen to focus on plant-based chicken products first, as part of its mission to create a truly healthy and sustainable alternative to meat for the world. Chicken is one of the most consumed meat products in the world[1]with 118 million tonnes produced each year, and getting even a small percentage of the population to switch to eating just one less part of chicken per day, will contribute major ecological and environmental benefits to the planet[2]. On top of that, the ability to produce plant-based chicken at scale will also create more cost-effective and consistent supplies to alleviate hunger and food accessibility. It’s part of Shandi’s philosophy, with one of their investors, Singapore food tech startup incubator, Innovate 360, which runs the Feed 9 Billion collaboration platform for food tech companies in Singapore. Feed 9 Billion aims to create an ecosystem for food suppliers to prepare to feed the expected 9 billion people in the world by 2050.

“Shandi is committed to driving food sustainability through innovation in food technology, and to doing it at scale and speed. We are currently focusedng on B2B (business to business) partnerships, of which we exploit the established networks to quickly present our products to the greatest number, in order to obtain a mass adoption of Shandi in kitchens around the world. This will allow us to grow rapidly, so that we can continue research and development to further improve our offerings,” says Dr. Reena SharmaFounder and CEO of Shandi Global.

“Working with companies like Shandi Global is truly satisfying as we aim to alleviate global food issues today and in the future. Innovate 360 ​​and Feed 9 Billion are proud to be involved as investors and partners in support of a truly innovative meatless product, proudly made in Singapore,” said John ChenChairman of Feed 9 Billion and CEO/Founder of Innovate 360. “Together we will feed the worldrdd!
