Zheng Song co-founded Angel Planet Foods in September of 2020 to pursue a dream of owning a plant-based food company inspired by Asian cuisines. Grew up in Beijing, China, Zheng moved to the United States to obtain an undergraduate degree at the University of Indiana. Afterwards, she earned an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Zheng spent over 20 years in investment banking and asset management working in Hong Kong, New York City, and Beijing. Zheng spent 4 years traveling throughout Asia while working in Asia and discovered that Asian cuisines' rich in flavors and unique textures eradicated her desire to eat meat. Inspired by her daughter who chose to become a vegetarian in 2002, Zheng became passionate about bringing high quality plant-based food to American consumers. Since launching the company, she has been developing products with recipe developers, analyzing nutritional values of the products, and building a team to produce consistently high quality products. Now, she proudly introduces Angel Planet Foods products at various farmers' markets across North Jersey, and formulates meal plans to grow Angel Planet Foods into a fast growing company that will benefit both the consumers' demand for plant-based products and the planet for the future ahead.
