BRAMI lupini beans are cooked, marinated, and vacuum-packed, without the use of artificial preservatives, creating a moist - but not mushy - snack with a shelf-life of more than a year (once opened, the product will keep for two weeks in the fridge), said New York-based founder Aaron Gatti, who grew up eating pickled lupini beans in Italy.
"Just online in the last 12 months we've grown our subscription business over 600% to $500,000 in recurring revenue and have found that consumers are not just using the beans as a healthy snack, but also in daily meal prep as a plant protein topper for salads and stir fries.
"Our mission is to build a modern Mediterranean diet-inspired platform of products that are satisfying, delicious, and great for you and the planet... anything you can do with soy or chickpeas, you can do better with lupini."
