Plant-based meat company No Evil Foods believes the key to fixing a broken system is through conscious business practices and delicious AF vegan eats. Located near Asheville, North Carolina, No Evil Foods makes meat that breaks all the rules. Firstly, it’s made of plants, not animals. It’s also better for you and the planet, but doesn’t compromise on the flavor, texture, or experience of conventional meat.


A (Vegan) Food Revolution


No Evil Foods was brought to life in 2014 by two fearless plant masters, Sadrah Schadel and Mike Woliansky, who shared a vision of creating the best protein on the planet and starting a food revolution. When the pair first thought up the idea of making drool-worthy, sustainable, and good-for-you meat out of plants, they were met with cynicism. “Some people told us it couldn’t be done,” co-founder Schadel told LIVEKINDLY. “We took that as a challenge and started a revolutionary company that uses food as a force for good.”


To do this, the company unites the passion of a home cook with the “spirit of a revolution.”


No Evil Foods’ compromise-free Plant Meat is made in small batches with simple ingredients. It’s mostly organic and totally free from oil, protein isolates, and cholesterol.


The couple is determined to bring people closer to the origins of their food, while also addressing issues like food insecurity, economic justice, and climate change. Animal agriculture is a leading driver of environmental issues including huge amounts of waste, water use, and 91 percent of Amazon rainforest destruction. It’s also a major contributor to climate change. One calorie of animal protein requires 11 times as much fossil fuel as one calorie of plant protein, and more than half of global greenhouse gas emissions are caused by livestock and their byproducts.


No Evil Foods even packages its planet-positive food in an eco-friendly way. The meat-free meats come in home-compostable cartons that seal with water-soluble adhesive. Even the ink on the packaging is plant-based.
