Mariann talks to Brenna Taylor, Operations Coordinator of Seattle Food Tech, about their production of plant-based, affordable alternatives to chicken nuggets and other chicken products. They also discuss the strategy behind Seattle Food Tech’s focus on finding replacements for processed chicken products, why SFT has focused on plant-based meat instead of clean meat, and how they plan to incorporate farmers into their production. Seattle Food Tech is an early stage plant-based meat company. Brenna oversees SFT’s day to day activities and is also involved in product development, production, and marketing for SFT’s plant-based nuggets. Prior to working at Seattle Food Tech, Brenna was a Senior Corporate Campaigns Coordinator for The Humane League.
Also, Jasmin and Mariann talk about the challenges of highlighting animal issues on social media. We’ve also got News and Rising Anxieties.
