About the Company

At TiNDLE, we believe a new era of food is coming. An era where we can enjoy delicious foods, without giving up any part of the memorable and delightful experience of dining on our favorite foods. We don’t want anyone to have to change what they eat; we just want to innovate how we produce and procure our most beloved foods – while reducing our reliance on animal agriculture... And that’s where uniquely inventive food tech and the explosive power of plants comes in.

Since launching in 2021, TiNDLE has become a global sensation amongst chefs and foodies – a ridiculously good chicken made from plants that offers unparalleled taste and texture. It will make you wonder why we ever needed birds to make chicken. We are now present in 9 markets globally, including the US, Germany and UK.

We attribute our success to the diverse expertise of our team, our unparalleled R&D know-how, and our unwavering commitment to making food better without compromises. As we expand our global footprint, we are always looking to grow our team with best-in-class talent. That could be you! Read on.
