The California startup Eat Just is partnered with China’s fast-food chain

Eat Just, a food startup from San Francisco making chicken-less eggs, has ambitions to crack the Chinese market. The startup said this week it will be suppling to fast-food chain Dicos, a local rival to McDonald’s and KFC in China. The agreement will see Eat Just add its plant-based eggs to the restaurant’s breakfast items across more than 500 locations. The eggs are derived from a legume called mung beans, which have long been a popular ingredient for soup, noodles, and dessert in China, according to Eat Just. The nine-year-old company, formerly Hampton Creek, has raised over $300 million.
