M&A

  • Wicked Kitchen, a leading plant-based meat company, and its associated brands, Good Catch and Current Foods, have been acquired by Ahimsa Companies, a holding company owned by the Ahimas Foundation.

  • Wicked Kitchen, founded in 2016 by Derek and Chad Sarno, is a UK-based plant-based meat producer. It has a significant presence in several countries, including the UK, US, Finland, and Thailand, and offers items like plant-based ready meals, pizzas, burgers, chorizo, meatballs, deli meats, katsu chicken, and sausages.

  • Wicked Kitchen, under the umbrella of Ahimsa Companies, plans to diversify its reach by offering products to an increasing number of retailers and introducing foodservice offerings. Furthermore, the company intends to continue investing in innovation to expand product variety. 

  • Analyst QuickTake: Ahimsa VC, the venture capital arm of Ahimas Foundation, invested in WIcked Kitchen’s USD 20 million funding round in September 2022. Wicked Kitchen acquired Good Catch and Current Foods (formerly Kuleana) to expand its portfolio and increase global opportunities, distribution channels, and consumer base.
