Started in Basel Switzerland, Captain Plant is an innovative startup working to make a healthier planet with plants. Their mission is to make delicious and healthy plant-based fast food available everywhere. By reducing consumption of animal products, they can have a big impact not only on human health but also on the health of the planet. They won the runner-up prize during the Impact Hub Fellowship on a Green Economy in partnership with WWF Switzerland in 2013.

Captain Plant thinks about sustainability in everything they do, so that you don’t have to! They want you to have fast food that you not only feel good about eating but just makes you feel good. They have been selling their burgers at fairs and events around Switzerland for over a year now and are finally ready to start building a global chain of quick service restaurants.

Captain Plant recently launched a crowdfunding campaign on 100-days.net to boost their project to redesign and outfit a Food Truck, which will be on the road beginning of September 2014 with a daily business focused on Basel and events in Zurich and other parts of Switzerland.
