Infinite Foods—Africa’s premier go-to-market platform for plant-based food brands—recently formed an Advisory Board to help the company grow its reach across the continent. The board consists of agricultural policy experts, bestselling plant-based nutrition authors, industry leaders, and investors, including Marco Borges, New York Times bestselling author and founder of 22 Days Nutrition; Lindiwe Sibanda, a globally recognized food security and agricultural policy expert; and Nil Zacharias, an entrepreneur, author, and host of leading food podcast “Eat For The Planet.” The board is chaired by Mayur Patel, an experienced entrepreneur and founding member of Infinite Foods. The group will work to accelerate the platform’s mission to make nutritious and environmentally sustainable vegan meat and non-dairy products accessible to customers in sub-Saharan Africa.
“We are passionate about catalyzing a sustainable plant-based food sector in Africa,” Michelle Adelman, founder and CEO of Infinite Foods, said. “We are honored to work with our advisors to improve the accessibility, affordability, and convenience of great-tasting, locally relevant, and nutritious plant-based products.”
Within 18 months of launch, Infinite Foods has brought the biggest plant-based food brands to Africa, including Beyond Meat, Miyoko’s Creamery, Nature et Moi, and Oatly. These products are now offered through more than 800 retail and foodservice outlets, including Woolworths, Famous Brands, and Spur Group.
