Founder and CEO
Zheng Song founded Angel Planet Foods in 2020 to pursue a dream of creating a plant-based Asian food company to address the environmental problems caused by the meat agriculture industry. Zheng spent over 25 years in finance and traveled throughout Asia. She discovered that Asian cuisine's rich flavors, fresh plant-based ingredients, and unique textures eradicated her desire to eat meat. Inspired by her daughter, who became vegan in 2012, Zheng became passionate about bringing high-quality plant-based food to American consumers. Since launching the company, she has developed products with world-renowned chefs and recipe developers, analyzing the products' nutritional values and building a team to produce consistently high-quality products. She proudly offers 100% plant-based, Non-GMO verified, Gluten Free, minimally processed, clean products that taste great in over 130 retail stores and on eCommerce platforms. Angel Planet Foods is a fast-growing company that will benefit from the consumers' demand for healthy plant-based foods and future generations' need for a sustainable environment. Zheng grew up in Beijing, China, and has an undergraduate degree from Indiana University and an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
