Unovis Partners is a global investment firm that partners with companies developing plant-based and cultured meat replacements to animal protein products.

Our Mission.

Our mission is to transform the global food system to one that is more sustainable – from the perspectives of environment, food scarcity, health and animal welfare – by investing in solutions that facilitate sustained behavioral change and eliminate the consumption of animal protein products.

Our Belief.

We view the trillion-dollar global market of industrial animal agriculture as an antiquated and inefficient food production system with serious vulnerabilities.

Our Belief.

These inefficiencies threaten our long-term ability to feed a rapidly growing global population,  are destructive to the environment, detrimental to our health, and cause great suffering to animals.

Our Belief.

We believe this broken system is ripe for innovation and large-scale disruption and that fixing it poses the most vital economic and ethical imperative of our time.

Our Approach.

We seek opportunities that allow us to exert maximal impact by converting consumer interest with the goal of providing wellness to all living beings, including present and future generations.

Our Approach.

We exhibit a strong understanding of early adopters of plant-based foods and the distribution channels that get those foods into consumers’ mouths.

Our Approach.

We focus on high-impact ventures with potential to reach mass markets.

Our Approach.

We combine our entrepreneurial nature, food industry experience and strong connections to early adopter networks and strategic partners to rapidly propel novel products to high visibility.

Our Food
Pact.

We measure potential for success based on four key tenets, which we call our “Food PACT”: Price, Awareness, Convenience, and Taste.

Our Food
Pact.

Price - While early adopters are usually willing to pay a premium, we need to know that the product can meet mainstream retail price points once at scale.

Our Food
Pact.

Awareness - Grocery store shelves and foodservice menus are crowded, competitive spaces. Our companies have to be able to break through the noise and tell a compelling story to attract consumer constituents.

Our Food
Pact.

Convenience - As humans we eat food in all kinds of settings: on airplanes, at Michelin-rated restaurants, in school cafeterias and at the corner store bodegas. We seek products that can be distributed timely and broadly to support sustained changes in consumer behavior.

Our Food
Pact.

Taste - Ultimately, taste is the most important parameter around which we asses potential investments. No one repurchases a product that they did not like

Our Work.

We are hands-on investors with a collaborative approach and a single focus, which provides deep knowledge about an untapped space.

We provide Angel, Seed and Early-Stage funding to entrepreneurs developing direct plant-based and clean meat replacements to meat, dairy, eggs, and seafood.

We employ our culinary knowledge, experience in food manufacturing, understanding of consumer habits, investment skills and global network to de-risk investments.

Our investments are
classified in five areas

01
Food Tech - Novel forms of production with protectable IP and CPG element.

02
CPG - Plant-based replacements for meat, dairy, eggs, or seafood.

03
Cellular Ag - Advanced fermentation and tissue engineering to produce animal products from the cellular level.

04
Convenience - Distribution and systems that increase consumer access to mission-aligned products.

05
Exploration - New approaches that fall in line with our investment thesis.

Our Team.

We’re a cross-functional team of entrepreneurs and investors led by a common goal to transform how we eat for the good of the planet and the good of all living beings.
