Mumbai Startup Makes Cholesterol-Free Vegan Eggs That Taste & Feel Like Eggs
A startup based in Mumbai, EVO Foods’ vegan egg is cholesterol-free antibiotic-free and matches eggs in taste, texture, and protein quality — all at a fraction of the environmental footprint.
Eggs are amongst the most prevalent animal-based foods in India, consumed across regions and religions. The technology and talent needed for making a good egg substitute from plants were also readily available.
While he was chewing on this idea, he met Shraddha at a conference for food startups. She had recently come back from the US armed with an education in hospitality and experience in the restaurant industry. She runs her own vegan restaurant in Mumbai called Candy & Green and is a huge proponent of sustainability, nutrition and a vegetarian lifestyle.
They discussed the future of food and really hit it off. This was in December 2018. In August next year, they set up Evo.
“What I really wanted was to change people’s perspective of food,” Shraddha explains. “And I realised that the best way to reach the maximum number of people was through something like Evo. Our goal is to create high-quality, affordable protein-sources for the world.”
