Sundial Foods initiates working partnerships to debut Sundial Wings

Latest News

Food tech company, Sundial Foods, has announced its first food service partnerships as part of an expansion project across 2022.  To begin with, and as a marker for Earth Day, the brand’s flagship product, Sundial Wings, has been added to the menu at various restaurants in New York and the Bay Area.

Sundial Wings

Sundial Wings are made with just eight easy-to-recognise ingredients including chickpeas, sunflower oil, and nutritional yeast. They contain more fibre and less saturated fat than chicken and offer a plant-based, animal-free alternative to traditional chicken wings.  In addition, no artificial flavours or synthetic chemicals are involved in the making of the product.

“This soft launch is a step toward our goal to provide nutritious, environmentally-friendly alternatives to animal protein,” said Sundial Food Co-Founder and CEO Jessica Schwabach. “By beginning with strategic foodservice partnerships, we will be able to share our plant-based chicken wings with eager diners – whether vegan, flexitarian, or meat lovers – while we work toward an e-commerce launch later this year.”

Next steps

The next food service locations that will be providing Sundial Foods are Orchard Grocer & Deli in New York’s Lower East Side from 22 April and Foghorn Taproom in San Francisco from 29 April.

Sundial Food was co-founded by Jessica Schwabach and Siwen Deng. They originally met while working on a school project for the University of California Berkeley’s Alternative Meats Programme. Turning their assignment into a fully functioning company, they participated in Nestle’s R&D Accelerator programme in 2020 as well as SOSV’s IndieBio programme last year. As a consequence of their endeavours, Sundial Foods announced a $4m seed round in late 2021 that includes Nestlé, Food Labs, Clear Current Capital, SOSV / IndieBio, as well as others.
