FAN ALUMNI 2021 REVO FOODS

Revo Foods is on a mission to make seafood more sustainable. Using 3D-printing technology they have developed and produced a range of healthy, tasty and nutritious plant-based seafood alternatives that can fully recreate the experience of eating seafood. 

Globally, 70% of all fish species are being overfished which is negatively impacting the ocean ecosystem and threatening the future of fish stocks. Revo Foods believes that consumers can continue to enjoy eating seafood without negatively impacting the environment with their innovative range of plant-based seafood alternatives. 

Using plant-based proteins Revo Foods have been able to recreate the texture, structure, taste and nutritional profile of seafoods such as salmon and tuna. While the plant-based meat market has boomed in recent years, the product offering for plant-based fish has remained relatively small, something that the Revo Foods team wants to change. 

Launched in 2020 by founders Robin Simsa, Theresa Rothenbücher, and Manuel Lachmayr the company, which was originally named ‘Legendary Vish’ has grown into a team of 24 members across eight nationalities. In early 2021 they rebranded to Revo Foods, and began selling their ‘smoked salmon’ in a restaurant in Vienna where they are headquartered. Around this time, they were also accepted into the EIT Food Accelerator Network; a programme focused on helping connect impactful agrifood startups with industry-leading corporate and research partners to pilot their technology and drive market adoption. Revo Foods CEO and Founder Robin Simsa shared that the EIT FAN programme and the Helsinki Hub were very helpful in connecting them to the research and corporate partners of the programme, particularly those within the Scandinavian area. Thanks to the FAN programme, they also received guidance from top experts within the agrifood industry, which has helped them drive their market entry and form partnerships with several restaurants and supermarkets.
