Food and Beverage
The world has never produced more food than it does today and yet, we are in the midst of a profound nutritional crisis. The abundance of unhealthy processed foods and unbalanced lifestyles has led to an explosion of preventable chronic illnesses. Chronic diseases associated with obesity and Type 2 Diabetes are responsible for two out of every three deaths in America. Excess weight and obesity affect two-thirds of all American adults and 37 million children. 29 million Americans are diabetic and another 86 million are prediabetic — a total of 36% of the U.S. population.
This troubling path toward rampant chronic disease, obesity and skyrocketing health care costs is fueled by misleading science and profiteering food & beverage corporations that care more about their bottom lines than the health of society.
Improving nutrition, providing education about nutrition and restoring the quality of real food are among the most important issues we face today. HumanCo is on a mission to create, grow and accelerate food, beverage and nutrition companies that:
- Represent real, authentic products with recognizable ingredients
- Help consumers live a better, healthier lives
- Are high-quality, high-purity and trustworthy
- Use sustainable practices that don’t harm our planet
Today, we are at an inflection point as awareness grows of America’s failed approach to diet and disease. Amidst this revolution, we see great opportunities for health-focused food companies that are committed to change this paradigm.
We are seeking owners and entrepreneurs in food, beverage and nutrition who are passionate about helping consumers live better lives.
