Hampton Creek Founder Appears on CNBC’s Mad Money

The plant-based company CEO showed Mad Money viewers how his tech-driven egg alternative is reinventing the food business.

Josh Tetrick, the founder and CEO of Hampton Creek Foods, recently made an appearance on CNBC’s investment studio show Mad Money, where he talked about the current success and future prospects of his company. Tetrick explained that Hampton’s faux egg and plant-based mayonnaise products bring health, sustainability and affordability to the fore, making them marketplace powerhouses that appeal to CEOs, eco-activists and thrifty shoppers alike. “Even if you didn’t care about the environment, [even] if you didn’t care about food safety, capitalism would say you should do it a different way,” said Tetrick, who reported that his Beyond Eggs product, which contains zero cholesterol and poses no risk of salmonella poisoning, is 48 percent less expensive than chicken eggs. Later, Tetrick made scrambled eggs for the Mad Money host Jim Cramer using a Beyond Eggs prototype. Cramer responded with enthusiasm after tasting the product, saying, “Shoot man, it’s good!”
