Open Philanthropy recommended a contract of $215,000 to Dao Foods to launch a plant-based startup incubator in China. Dao Foods is a Chinese-led impact investment firm that supports entrepreneurs who seek to develop meat alternatives.

This follows our July 2019 support and falls within our focus area of farm animal welfare.

This project was supported through a contractor agreement. While we typically do not publish pages for contractor agreements, we occasionally opt to do so.
