Equinom Ltd. (Kibbutz Givat Brenner, Israel), is expanding operations to the North American market by opening offices in the U.S. Equinom’s business model directly connects food companies to the supply chain, increasing transparency and leading to responsible sourcing of high value plant protein.
Rick Mignella, executive vice president and managing director will lead the U.S. team and focus on scaling up business to expand the company’s presence within the North American market. Prior to Equinom, Mignella held strategic business development positions for Ingredion and Cargill.
“Equinom can significantly contribute to the plant-based revolution and the broader food industries by changing the way food systems currently operate,” stated Mignella in a press release. “Equinom’s non-GMO technology can help facilitate the creation of clean food products, increase protein content, and tailor key nutrients to the specific requests of food product developers and manufacturers. Our mission of connecting the farming industry with the food companies will build the next-generation mutual ecosystem for food production.”
