All you need is plant-based chicken: Paul McCartney backs Singapore alt protein


In Singapore, ex-Beatle Paul McCartney has participated in a $100-million series A funding round for Next Gen Foods, the alternative protein company behind plant-based chicken, TiNDLE. 

MPL Ventures, McCartney’s investment firm, joined Alpha JWC, EDBI, Temasek’s Asia Sustainable Food Platform, GGV Capital, K3 Ventures and Bits x Bites  in the fund raise.  

TiNDLE will use the funds to expand distribution throughout the US, including markets more receptive to new foods like California, New York, and Miami. 

“The US has long been a target market for us and thanks to our lineup of investors who have participated in this funding round; this is only the beginning of our journey in delivering delicious and sustainable foods to reverse our climate crisis,” says Andre Menezes, CEO and co-founder of Next Gen Foods.
