Beginning in April, Next Gen Foods is rolling out its flagship product, TiNDLE, in restaurants across the United Kingdom. TiNDLE will debut in over 50 sites, partnering with 11 of London's most iconic eateries and restaurant groups.

TiNDLE claims to be the first chicken made from plants. It was created by chefs and for chefs. The company says it is a versatile, easy-to-work-with product with unique similarities in taste, texture and aroma to chicken from birds.

In a press release, Next Gen Foods said the plant-based chicken has seen rapid success in the United States, Singapore, Hong Kong, Amsterdam and Dubai. It is now available in nearly 500 restaurants around the world.

"Since the very start, we have known that bringing TiNDLE to London would be a critical milestone for the company," said Andre Menezes, CEO and Co-Founder of Next Gen Foods. "It is not only one of the world's premier food destinations, but also a global hot spot for innovation."

"We are thrilled to be working alongside some fantastic restaurant partners and chefs in the UK, who are helping us achieve our goal of bringing delicious – but also sustainable – options to diners," he added.

TiNDLE's London debut follows the startup's recent Series A announcement, supported by global investors such as UK-based MPL Ventures, as well as Alpha JWC, EDBI, GGV Capital and Temasek's Asia Sustainable Foods Platform. The company plans to continue its mission to create a more sustainable food system by expanding into new markets this year, including Germany this spring and at additional locations throughout Europe.
