Hey Planet exists because we believe that what you eat has the power to change the world.
A young vegetarian with a passion for the planet
I realised the harmful impact of eating meat and became a strict vegetarian at a young age.
However, my diet also made me tired and anemic because I lacked iron and vitamin B12.
My life changed in Tanzania when I realized that I could feel healthy while still eating in an environmentally friendly way!
Not only did I feel better, I discovered that my new diet was full of protein, iron and B12.
In walks a social entrepreneur
Malena was eager to share what she had learned with others in Denmark.
She joined forces with Jessica, who saw a huge potential for creating a purposeful business and loved the taste of the insects!
Together, we co-founded Hey Planet intending to create delicious food products using incredible insect protein.
Together, we envision a world where the food we eat is better for our own health, for our kids’ health, and better for our planet.
Combining quality, sustainability & nutrition
Today we’re selling a range of tasty, nutritious and planet-friendly products, fighting to integrate insect powder into the everyday diets of the Western world. Our dream is to secure the future of the planet and all the wonders who live here.
We strive to create a positive impact not only by promoting sustainable protein but in all areas of our business, ranging from choices of packaging, logistics, marketing, and creating a happy and healthy workplace.
Hey Planet’s purpose is to create a more sustainable food company to ensure a greener planet for future generations. This means creating a profit must go hand-in-hand with having a positive impact on the planet.
