Alternative protein startup, Planted, recently raised the equivalent of around $72 million in a Series B round led by L Catterton. Planted is based in Switzerland. It develops alternative proteins using bio-structuring and fermentation to offer clean cuts of vegan meat. The company offers faux versions of chicken, pulled pork, kebab meat, and schnitzel, which can be found at retailers and restaurants across Europe. Christoph Jenny, co-founder of Planted, joins Cheddar News' Closing Bell to discuss.
