Copy link

PLANETARIANS is developing high protein snacks for growing population from by-products of the food industry, without the need to grow more crops.

PLANETARIANS launches a new product line of Sunflower Chips made from ingredients, that are used as animal feed today. PLANETARIANS chips reduce the footprint that animal agriculture makes on the planet. That means less land used, less greenhouse gas emissions, less water consumption.

“Animal agriculture wastes 93% of nutrients. Much of what we feed to animals is high-quality nutrients that can be eaten by humans instead,” said Aleh Manchuliantsau, PLANETARIANS Founder and CEO. “We can feed 10x more people if we stop feeding animals and start processing plants directly.” 

“More and more people join the Vegan movement to support alternatives to animal products. We want to help them,” said Anastasia Tkacheva, Chief Mixologist. “PLANETARIANS snacks contain comparable amount of protein as animal products.”

“For Generation Z snacking is a way of eating,” said Debbie Wildrick, Metabrand’s Chief Strategy Officer.

PLANETARIANS chips are the first food product made from Sunflower meal as the primary ingredient. Sunflower Meal is a by-product left after oil extraction from seeds. Sunflower Meal contains 35% high-quality protein with all essential amino acids. Sunflower was never genetically modified (NON-GMO) and is Gluten Free. 

Manufacturing process tested at the University of Minnesota. Nutritional facts certified by Medallion Labs. The company was accelerated and invested by Techstars. Notable investors: Brad Feld, Lisa Gansky, David Larrabee.

“PLANETARIANS chips is a perfect way to feed kids and teach them how to eat healthy and care about the planet,” said Lesa Mitchell, Managing Director, Techstars KC.

PLANETARIANS believes that by using 100% of plants, we are making meals wholesome, feeding a growing population and all around planet friendly. PLANETARIANS snacks have 3x more Protein, 2x more Fiber and 3x less Fat per serving than typical potato chips. The company offers its products online, as well as through email orders for wholesalers at
