Vegan Saudi Arabian Prince Khaled bin Alwaleed is the father of goal setting. He previously invested his riches into promoting clean energy and now he’s joined the Board of Directors at Hampton Creek with a goal to end factory farming.
After losing its entire board over the summer, the condiments creator added four new board members, including animal rights activist bin Alwaleed, in addition to three advisors.
Hampton Creek is best known for their Just Mayo, an egg-and-dairy-free version of mayonnaise. However, they are getting more and more into the concept of “clean eating” as they predict their lab-grown meat to hit the market by 2018.
People backing the company include Vinod Khosla and Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang. Hampton Creek managed to raise a minimum of $220 million to keep on providing plant-based and meat-free alternatives, include lab-grown meat.
We’re excited to see how bin Alwaleed will influence Hampton Creek’s future with his commitment to “relegating factory farming to the dustbin of history.” If you’re interested in learning more about bin Alwaleed’s commitment, you can listen to the #EatForThePlants with Nil Zacharias podcast, where the prince explains how he wants to end factory farming within the next 10 years by making smart investments in cellular auriculate and plant-based proteins.
