At the age of 20, Kartik Dixit realised how much the food system was contributing to greenhouse gas emissions and became vegan overnight. What shocked him most of all however, was that nobody was working on tackling alternative protein in India. Starting with cell-based meat and then transitioning to the plant-based sector, Kartik is now working on evolving egg through his venture Evo foods. In this week’s episode we chat with Kartik about the different layers of vegetarianism in India, and why him and his team chose to develop a plant-based egg product. We also talk about product development, finding a manufacturing partner, future expansion and what a day in the life looks like for the CEO and co-founder.
