daring is the leader in clean plant-based chicken and was founded with a clear goal in mind: to remove chicken as a form of animal protein from our food system. Founded in 2018 by Ross Mackay and Eliott Kessas, daring landed in the U.S. in 2020 with its mission to create a more sustainable, delicious, and nutritious plant-based option for an audience that consumes chicken multiple times a week. daring offers frozen pieces that are 100% plant-based, 14g per serving with just five non-GMO ingredients and spices. daring's pouches are available in Original, Lemon & Herb, Cajun, and Breaded. daring is available at Sprouts Farmers Market, Gelson's, Bristol Farms and Fresh Thyme, and online directly at daring debuted its daring is caring giveback program in June 2020 - an ongoing initiative to donate a percentage of sales to game-changers in the food, wellness, and social justice space.
