We’re a team of passionate-foodies-on-a-mission.
We eat crazy ideas for breakfast. Then we spend our days inventing and launching new food products that no one has thought of before. But we don’t take ourselves too seriously, because what we do goes way beyond the idea of work – or even the idea of fun – it’s an absolute thrill. We’re helping break through to a new global, sustainable diet that makes everyone’s lives better – human and animal.
Our founding chefs, Chad and Derek Sarno are the masterminds behind the blog Wicked Healthy and The Wicked Healthy Cookbook, which guides readers to a healthier, plant-based lifestyle. They are brothers and culinary ninjas that have each power-cooked their way to the top of the food chain in their respective positions. Self-professed plant pushers, Chad and Derek are pioneers in moving plant-based eating to the mainstream.
CHAD SARNO is Senior VP of Culinary Innovation at Good Catch. He has launched plant-based restaurants in Istanbul, Munich, London and Belgrade and served as VP of Plant-Based Education at Rouxbe Cooking School.
