Paris, June 14th 2022
Created in 2019 by Guillaume Dubois and Cédric Meston, HappyVore (formerly Les Nouveaux Fermiers) is one of the French leaders in plant-based meat. The Company develops and markets a full range of plant-based products (including nuggets, steaks, meatballs...) to circa 2,000 points of sales (mainly hypermarkets and restaurants). Happyvore employs 60 people with 25-30 new recruitments targeted by year-end.
In June 2022, HappyVore announced it has completed a new funding round of €35 million led by US-based Invus to finance the development of its industrial capabilities (set-up of own production site in Loiret, one of the largest in France for plant-based meat) and its accelerated sales expansion.
