The Surprising Forces Driving the Meat-Alternative Movement with Outstanding Foods Co-Founder Bill Glaser 1

with Outstanding Foods Co-Founder Bill Glaser

What do you get when you throw a serial entrepreneur, a vegan chef, and Rob Dyrdek in the same room? Turns out, the perfect plant-based pork rind.

This week’s guest is Bill Glaser, the founder and CEO of Outstanding Foods.

Outstanding make snack foods that are full of flavor and free of guilt – both because they’re nutritious, and because they are made completely sans animal products.

Bill started the company with co-founder Chef Dave Anderson, who also happens to be the former lead product developer at Beyond Meat.

Outstanding’s first product is the PigOut Pigless Pork Rinds… which are 100% plant-based.

We talked to Bill about why loves high growth companies, why Outstanding is a decidedly judgment-free brand, and the surprising consumer forces driving the meat-alternative movement. And of course, we learn how Rob Dyrdek became a lead investor and ultimately helped him develop the brand.
