This year, Meatless Farm launched a vegan steak made from pea protein, adding to its range of plant-based food that includes meat free mince, burgers and chicken. Danish entrepreneur Morten Toft Bech founded the Leeds-based business in 2016. It opened production hubs in the Netherlands and Canada last year and now exports to more than 20 countries. Its products are available in retailers and foodservice outlets, such as Sainsbury’s, Tesco, Pret and Fridays restaurants. Meatless Farm has raised £38m to date, including £3.3m on crowdfunding platform Crowdcube last year. Investors include cyclist Mark Cavendish.
