Rebellyous is a food manufacturing technology and production company defined solely to catapult meat alternative production toward price parity with factory-farmed animal-based meat. The company makes delicious, juicy plant-based chicken nuggets, patties, and chicken strips. Their ready-to-heat and serve foods cook just like breaded chicken products, so they can be an easy part of busy meal schedules at schools, hospitals, corporate cafeterias, and restaurants.
