Eat JUST, more widely known as JUST, is on a mission to build a food system where everyone eats well. The San Francisco-based private company valued at over $1 billion uses scientists, researchers, farmers, and Michelin-starred chefs to create plant-based foods that are delicious, healthier and more sustainable. The company is best known for JUST Egg, a liquid egg product that is made from mung beans, a protein-rich legume. The company was known as Hampton Creek, which had been named "the fastest growing food company on earth" by Inc. Magazine and "the future of food" by Bill Gates.
