Hampton Creek and Compass Group USA Announce Industry-Shaping Partnership
Feb 19 15
Hampton Creek and Compass Group USA announced they have completed an industry-shaping partnership. The partnership is built around the shared belief that good food, both for the body and society, should be delicious and widely accessible. That belief is core to Compass Group's 2020 Vision. That 2020 Vision represents a revolutionary use of technology to enable customers to own their health; combined with a pioneering food philosophy that believes great tasting, better-for-you, more affordable food is fundamental to the future of foodservice; and cafés that put customer needs and behaviors at the center, making that space more than just a place to eat. Hampton Creek will provide products and targeted product development to be used by Compass Group companies. Those products currently include Hampton Creek's Just Mayo and Just Cookies, with additional products in the pipeline. The new partnership will also create a joint program to teach fundamental values and the principles of entrepreneurship into the lives of tens of thousands of at-risk young people across the United States through an intensive, immersive six week "boot camp" experience led by community leaders, industry professionals and entrepreneurs.
Hellman's Maker Unilever Drops Suit over 'Just Mayo'
Dec 18 14
Unilever says that it has withdrawn its lawsuit against the maker of 'Just Mayo'. Unilever had filed suit against Hampton Creek earlier 2014 claiming false advertising for Just Mayo, an eggless product. Unilever argued that 'Just Mayo' has no eggs and therefore doesn't meet the definition of mayonnaise. Unilever had said that the word mayo implies that the product is mayonnaise, and that Just Mayo was stealing market share from Hellman's. Unilever decided to withdraw the lawsuit so that Hampton Creek can address its label directly with industry groups and regulatory authorities.
