Bernat Añaños, Co-Founder and Chief Social Movement Officer of Heura Foods, makers of one of the hottest vegan protein sources in Europe and now the world, is a featured guest this week on the Impact Podcast with John Shegerian. The show is hosted by Shegerian, Co-Founder and Executive Chairman of ERI, the nation’s leading fully integrated IT and electronics asset disposition provider and cybersecurity-focused hardware destruction company.
A passionate food activist, Barcelona-based Añaños and Marc Coloma founded Heura in April 2017 as "just two millennials trying to change the world." Before co-founding Heura, Añaños had an international career that ranged from institutional communications at the European Parliament to launching start-ups in China. Today, his clear focus is to make a positive impact with innovative and delicious plant-based food products. Used in a wide range of foods from ramen to stews and sandwiches, Heura is currently present in 13 countries around the world, and growing.
"It was inspiring to have Bernat on the show to share his unique story and how he launched Heura, a company that is completely disrupting the vegan food industry and driving more people to explore plant-based options," said Shegerian. "Bernat and his business partner Marc Coloma are true visionaries in the meat alternative space. They are actively changing people’s perception of plant-based meat with a signature vegan chicken substitute that is delicious, healthy and totally made from plants."
"Thank you to John Shegerian and the Impact Podcast for having me and Heura on the program," said Añaños. "Without the platform of shows like Impact, the success of Heura could not happen. We appreciate a show that is willing to share our story and the Heura voice around the world. So, thank you very much because, without this kind of support, Heura would not be what it is today."
