ABOVE: Better Chew Fried Chicken, one of the plant-based foods crafted by Something Better Foods

Something Better Foods is leading the charge to build equity and representation as part of its business model, something not often found in the sustainable foods space. The company not only makes an impressive range of plant-based products, it is trailblazing in its commitment to racial equity across all levels of its operations and to bringing its food to marginalized communities that have been traditionally left out by the healthy foods industry. 

Designed to be used in place of meat-based proteins, Something Better Foods’ products help home chefs and restaurants “veganize” their menus and lower their carbon footprints by making it easy (and tasty!) to transition to plant-based proteins. Better Chew, Something Better Foods’ most recent product line, has been created with the consumer in mind, and its products mimic the main ingredients in America’s most popular comfort and ethnic foods including beef, chicken, and seafood.

Our mission is to create plant-based food solutions that are affordable and accessible to ALL people,” added Chef Chew

Since December, ICA has deployed more than $1.5MM in growth equity to Bay Area companies. Something Better Foods joins Don Bugito and Goal Five as the most recent recipients of ICA’s capital, and is part of ICA’s expanding Growth Fund. 

The fund makes growth equity investments of $100,000 to $1,000,000 with a focus on serving entrepreneurs of color and women.  Our investment strategy intentionally focuses on racial and gender equity, and supports companies that are committed to our shared mission of wealth creation and distribution to a diverse workforce.
