SEATTLE — Rebellyous Foods, a food manufacturing technology company, has raised a $9.5 million equity round to scale production of plant-based chicken alternatives.

Founded in 2017 by former aerospace engineer Christie Lagally, Rebellyous Foods developed patented technology to produce plant-based meat at costs that are competitive with conventional chicken products. The company’s products are available in more than 1,000 retail locations and more than 100 school districts across the United States.

“During a tough economic slump, we are thrilled by this testament to investors’ belief in Rebellyous and in price parity as a solution to sustained growth of plant-based meat in the marketplace,” said Lagally, chief executive officer of Rebellyous Foods. “The world is in desperate need of viable solutions to animal agriculture, and we are delighted we are one step closer to delicious, affordable plant-based meat for all.”
