Two young entrepreneurs from the UK have just launched a Kickstarter Campaign, calling out to the public to help them raise the funds they need to launch their new start-up company, PlantWarrior.
Their first product will be a healthy protein powder called Superfood Protein. Made from 100% plant-based and vegan ingredients, they believe they’ve created the healthiest protein powder in the world and vow to give 10% of profits from their business to charity, every year.
“We created Superfood Protein because we wanted to find a high quality, healthy and ethically produced Protein Powder. When we couldn’t find one, we thought we’d make one ourselves” said Joseph Hill, Co-Founder of PlantWarrior.
The most commonly consumed protein powder is Whey Protein, but many health enthusiasts are turning away from Whey as recent studies have linked it to a variety of health risks. One study from 2012 by retail watchdog ‘Consumer Reports’ found that a variety of whey protein powders on the market today contain worrying amounts of arsenic, cadmium, or lead.
“We need to raise just £3,000 with our Kickstarter to launch our business. We’ve produced smaller batches of the product, but we don’t have enough money to meet the minimum order quantity our supplier needs to go into proper production.” said David Donaldson, Co-Founder of PlantWarrior.
