Made with just nine ingredients, TiNDLE is the first product from Next Gen Foods, a year-old food technology start-up helping to make the global food system sustainable with delicious foods.

From today, the diners through Amsterdam can now taste TiNDLE in a range of delicious preparations at six restaurants, including:
Social Box: At the popular Australian-style bruncheria, chef and owner Alex than aye prepares TiNDLE in three remarkable dishes: Kim’s tacos (a trio of sweet and spicy Korean frozen tacos), Social norm (a buttermilk fried burger with gooey cheddar cheese and mustard seed pickles on a homemade milk bun) and The Parmy (the restaurant’s famous chicken parmigiana made with fried and breaded TiNDLE and topped with homemade marinara and melted mozzarella).
Cabron: Chef Armando Sacksioni TINDLE Fried Taco at the popular Mexican restaurant and bar is made with a unique oat milk brine and three flour coating, served with Michelada mayonnaise, picked cucumbers, pink peppercorns, dill, leaves of micro daikon and coleslaw.

“What’s amazing about TiNDLE is the texture – it has fibers! The product is incredibly versatile in the kitchen, and I’ve been blown away by the experience every time I’ve cooked with it,” shares leader Kimberly stubing of coffee and coconut. “At the restaurant, we decided to go with an all-vegetable fried TiNDLE bao, but you wouldn’t even know the difference.”
Chief Brand Rudolf de CIRCL adds, “It’s always difficult to find high protein ingredients in a plant-based diet. Now I can combine the best of both worlds with the high protein TiNDLE alongside the veg.
To celebrate TiNDLE’s first weekend at Amsterdam, Next Gen Foods will partner with Box Sociaal to offer free slider-sized samples of their signature burger, the Social Standaard Buttermilk TiNDLE Burger, to IJ-Hallen – the biggest flea market in Europe.

Next stop of the TiNDLE train: Europe
Considered one of the world’s leading centers of innovation and food technology, Amsterdam is the first city on the European map for Next Gen Foods.
“Amsterdam is a pioneer city in terms of food innovation and sustainability on the plate ”, declares André Ménezès, CEO and co-founder of Next Gen Foods. “We are delighted to announce that TiNDLE is now available in restaurants in Amsterdam – offered in some of the city’s most popular and innovative culinary destinations. We are convinced that TiNDLE, which was developed by our Dutch technology director and is currently produced in the Netherlands, will also be appreciated by consumers here. “
The company has early roots in Europe, where president and co-founder Timo recker was the founder and CEO of the German vegetable meat company LikeMeat, before moving to Singapore to start Next Gen Foods. Chief Technology Officer of Next Gen Foods, John seeger, is from the Netherlands and has over two decades of experience in food innovation within the plant-based food industry – having previously worked as Managing Director of LikeMeat alongside Recker and as Head of R&D for Meatfree .

Rapid growth and global outlook
Next Gen Foods was founded in 2020 by a Brazilian-born poultry exporter and food industry veteran André Ménezès, and native German Timo recker, whose family business has been making cutlets and other meat products for three generations.
After a chance meeting at a business incubator, they decided to work on products that reduce humanity’s dependence on animal agriculture. They named their first product TiNDLE as a modern reference to the 19th century Irish physicist John tyndall, which proved the link between atmospheric CO2 and the greenhouse effect.
Next Gen Foods is funded by a $ 30 million Asian and American venture capitalists, biggest first round ever for a plant-based food start-up. Investors include Temasek, K3 Ventures, NX-FOOD and Global Fund GGV Capital, as well as prominent figures such as the business guru Chris Yeah. In addition, support for TiNDLE is increasing in Europe, with famous English footballer Dele Alli recently joined as an independent investor to new generation foods.
TiNDLE is now served in over 150 restaurants across Amsterdam, Singapore, Hong Kong, Macau, Kuala Lumpur and the United Arab Emirates. The company also plans to bring TiNDLE to the UK, Germany and United States in 2022.
