Many food manufacturers have lost the public’s trust because they are not forthright in their production and do not honestly reveal the ingredients being used in their products. Although one would think the vegan food industry would be more open and honest, this is not always the case. Unfortunately, many food producers today use chemical products and fillers that are unhealthy. Many products contain animal byproducts that not only harm the environment but are also unhealthy for humans to consume on a regular basis. Because of this, Hampton Creek sought from the very beginning to be completely open and honest in every step they take in producing their vegan food line.
Realizing the use of animal products is greatly harming the environment, they sought to create sustainable food ingredients that were healthy and offered the same delicious tastes as non-vegan foods. With Hampton Creek’s environmentally friendly foods, the vegan food industry is slowly making changes. Hampton Creek has been so successful in their own food line, they are now encouraging others due to sheer competition. Now that consumers all over the world are demanding higher quality and healthier foods, other companies have had no choice but to rise to the challenge of Hampton Creek.
What started out as a Just Mayo line has recently grown to include many more products. In fact, Hampton Creek recently announced they would be adding up to 43 new vegan food products to their lineup. They also announced they are working on as many as 500 other food products. In their work, they have researched thousands of plants to learn about their properties and how they can used in food production. Their greatest breakthrough came in the form of a pea protein they were able to successfully use to create an egg substitute that could be used to create mayo, dressings, and a host of baked goods.
As Hampton Creek continues to strive for perfection in vegan food production, they hope other food producers will continue to rise to the challenge and change the way they produce food, along with the ingredients they use.
