Yo! Egg Lands $5M in Preparation for Launching World’s First Plant-Based Sunny-Side-Up and Poached Eggs into US Restaurants –

Following the recent close of a US $5 million seed round, plant-based egg startup Yo! Egg is set to launch the world’s first plant-based, sunny-side-up and poached egg in restaurants across the US. Restaurants and distributors will have the first opportunity to try the innovative Yo! Egg range at the National Restaurant Association trade show in Chicago from May 21st to 24th.

Yo! Egg’s products bring a “whole egg” experience, complete with a perfect egg white and runny yolk, for consumers who love the taste and texture of eggs but who would prefer a more sustainable and cholesterol-free option. With 1 in 6 consumers eating more than half their meals plant-based, and countless diners choosing where to eat based on the dietary preferences of the people they share their meals with, Yo! Egg is a strategic addition to any restaurant’s menu.

Investors are also keen on the opportunity. The company’s oversubscribed seed round was led by food tech focused venture capital firm Stray Dog Capital and NFX, the renowned Tech investor, for whom this marks a first investment in a food tech company. Surround Ventures and Secret Chord Ventures also participated in the round. Yo! Egg is using the capital to scale production and propel its launch into the American market.

Stray Dog Capital Partner Johnny Ream said of the company, “with over 95 billion eggs consumed every year in the US, and each egg requiring 53 gallons of water to produce, we need a better solution. Yo! Egg has developed one of the most impressive plant-based products we have seen to date, and we believe both the product and scaling innovation the company is pursuing will give them the potential to drive significant growth and impact.”

“With hundreds of millions of people across the world demanding plant-alternatives for their favorite proteins, Yo! Egg’s first-of-its-kind eggs will be a hit in restaurants nationwide,” explained Gigi Levy-Weiss, General Partner at NFX. “I am confident in Eran, Yosefa, Nisim and the team they have built to transform the $200 billion egg market.”

Yo! Egg plans to transform the egg industry, sans chickens. The company sees a huge opportunity for positive change by offering a new generation of plant-based eggs that fully deliver from a sensory perspective. According to company CEO Eran Groner, “The Yo! Egg team has a unique mix of extraordinary product innovation expertise and engineering talent that we believe will help our company revolutionize the way the world produces and consumes eggs.”

Following the company’s US debut at the National Restaurant Association show in May, consumers can expect to see these prized runny yolks on menus in the Greater Los Angeles area by the end of this year. Yo! Egg will serve their groundbreaking eggs to National Restaurant Association show visitors at booth 1084 and welcome meetings with distributors and foodservice operators who want to be among the first to carry the products.

Latin America provides particularly fertile ground for low-cost carriers due to economic constraints, limiting people’s ability to travel by air, and the diversity of destinations in short-haul domestic and regional markets. As Viva Air continues to build on its mission of “democratizing the skies,” the Colombian airline is constantly looking to grow its footprint for Latin American regional travelers.

By positioning Medellín, Colombia as its regional hub, Viva Air has made a firm promise to connect Latin America through the Antioquian capital. Known for its social innovation, Medellín offers unique opportunities for connectivity, development, and savings for travelers, by servicing the best destinations with the best prices.

Viva Air currently offers 29 domestic routes around Colombia, 5 domestic routes around Peru and international routes to Mexico (2 destinations), and the United States (2 destinations). Since 2015, Viva Air has operated routes to Miami, Florida, and currently offers 17 weekly flights, making it one of the airlines most successful routes. In July 2021, the airline inaugurated its second flight to the United States, landing in Orlando, Florida, increasing its connections to North America.

As the company continues on its path of rapid expansion, Viva Air looks to reach approximately 50 million passengers and add an additional 15 new routes between 2022-2025, representing a further step towards consolidating its position as the best low-cost airline in the region.

Founded in 2012, Viva Air is a pioneer low-cost airline group in the region, created by Irlandia Aviation, known for championing some of the world’s top low-cost airlines like, Ryanair. Today, Viva Air applies the successful European model to Latin America, while enticing a diversity of travelers from varying economic, social, and cultural backgrounds to enrich its consumer base.

“At Viva Air, we believe that everyone has the same opportunity to fly high and fly more. For us, that means being proud of the company’s diversity of employees, customers, and destinations we visit,” explained Viva Air president and CEO of the Group, Félix Antelo. “We’re on a mission to consolidate our position within the region’s aviation market by democratizing the skies and making travel affordable for everyone. Based on our success of the past year, we look forward to what the future will bring to us, and how we will continue improving our offering for regional passengers.”

Viva Air’s innovative approach to running an airline demonstrates the company’s commitment to transforming air travel by democratizing the skies and bringing affordable travel to more consumers in Latin America and beyond.
