‘No harm, no fowl’: Rebellyous Foods relocates plant-based ‘chicken’ revolution to West Seattle

A venture-capital-backed tech startup has just moved into the heart of the West Seattle Triangle.

Its primary product, however, isn’t meant for your screen. It’s meant for your plate.

Rebellyous Foods is the new tenant for the second floor of the 4600 37th SW building in The Triangle, where SK Food Group long prepared meals for airline passengers. Rebellyous Foods’ main product has something to do with wings, too – a plant-based replacement for chicken.

The company founded by former Boeing engineer Christie Lagally makes more than food. It also is inventing technology to make the production of plant-based “chicken nuggets” cheaper – so that it can compete price-wise as well as flavor-wise.

We talked with Lagally during a tour of their new HQ this week.
