Hampton Creek Foods

Hampton Creek is a food company headquartered in Northern California that uses technology based upon understanding plants from every corner of the planet, and enables consumers, food manufactures, and the largest retailers around the world, to offer better, healthier products, at a more affordable cost. Hampton Creek has a mission to bring healthier and more affordable food to everyone, everywhere and is backed by Li Ka-shing, the wealthiest man in Asia, Khosla Ventures, Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, Eagle Cliff Partners and the Collaborative Fund, amongst others. The company was founded in December 2011 by CEO, Joshua Tetrick.

Hampton Creek was chosen by Bill Gates as one of three companies shaping the future of food and was selected by Popular Science for the 2013 Best of What’s New Grand Award. Their first product is a mayonnaise called Just Mayo which is in Whole Foods across the United States. They work with three manufacturers across America: in Tennessee, Washington, and Southern California. Hampton Creek is also working with numerous corporations on removing eggs from existing products already on the market.

CEO/Founder Josh Tetrick has reported that Hampton Creek will be rolling their products out with six undisclosed Fortune 500 companies by summer 2014. The company has a team with various backgrounds including science, culinary, and engineering.
